VFB Stuttgart vs FC Bayern Muenchen Preview

There is a lot at stake in tomorrows match between neighbours VFB Stuttgart and FC Bayern Muenchen.  There are some good news for Bayern fans.  Most of the players that were affected by the flu will be fit to play.  The flu resulted in Bayern fielding a "B" team on Wednesday against Manchester City. 

Gomez, Kroos and Van Buyten are good to go and it looks like Thomas Mueller and Arjen Robben will be able to play as well.  A win tomorrow, regardless of the outcome of the Dortmund game against Kaiserslautern will keep Bayern in the top spot.  Of course Bayern will be hoping for an upset in Dortmund. 

Stuttgart is presently in seventh place with 22 points and a win for the Schwaben will help them maintain contact with the top 6 and a Euroleague spot.   A loss would be a setback. 

For Gomez will be playing against the club, where he has some close friends, but he said it won't influence his performance.   The Ukrainian Tymoschuk and Stuttgart's Progrebnjac are also good buddies.  Progrebnjac says that Bayern players often talk to him in Russian on the pitch and bets that Tymoschuk puts them up to it.

With a full strength team the match is Munich's to lose.

Preliminary Line Ups:

FC Bayern :  Neuer - Lahm, Badstuber, Van Buyten, Raffhina - Kroos, Tymoschuk - Ribery, Mueller, Robben - Gomez

VFB Stuttgart:  Ulreich - Boka, Tacsi, Maza, Molarina - Holger, Kvist - Harik, Hajnal, Okazaki - Cacau


  1. Sounds like it's going to be a great game with team back in full strength....thanks for the update..." GO Munich Go " Play like Champions lol
