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.
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
