Even though Borussia Dortmund is depleted, Bayern Munich manager Julian Naglesmann knows that defeating them will be difficult.

Gregor Kobel,

, Mats Hummels, Donyell Malen, Mahmoud Dahoud, Thomas Meunier, Thorgan Hazard,

Giovanni Reyna

, and Steffen Tigges will be absent from Marco Rose's squad. None of this matters to Bayern Munich coach


, who is aiming for his first Bundesliga title — and the club's 10th in a row.

"They're missing a few players, but they're extremely versatile and can play a variety of systems throughout the game." They are still one of the best teams in the final third of the field. "If they try to speed up the game, it will be very fast," Nagelsmann predicted. Nagelsmann's own team is also riddled with injured and/or ill players.

"(Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting) had back issues yesterday, but he was back in action today." Lucas Hernandez is now in good health. "We'll see how he is tomorrow and make a decision," Nagelsmann said. "(Kingsley Coman) was having some ankle issues again — we'll see how he is tomorrow and make a decision."

"Omar Richards is suffering from a cold, and all of his tests have come back negative. As you may be aware, Corentin Tolisso is unavailable, and Bouna Sarr is also unable to play due to a patella tendon injury.

Leon Goretzka

has returned to the team after a cold and has been training exceptionally well."

While Nagelsmann may be unfamiliar with the prospect of being so close to a championship, he knows that many of his players are. "Some players have grown accustomed to winning league championships. But there is still work to be done. "I'm sure the players will be thrilled," Nagelsmann stated.

But first and foremost, I'm focused on the task at hand, the opponent. Something will undoubtedly happen at Marienplatz if we become champions. Nagelsmann said, "We have two very capable people in team management planning that."
