Bayern Munich: It will be interesting to see how Bayern approaches this game, because they will surely like to end the title race as soon as possible. But with tricky games coming up against Leverkusen and Monchengladbach, this may be a chance to give some of the backups a bit more minutes. Thiago Alcantara remains out with an adductor injury and will not play, Bayern coach Hansi Flick said in his pre-match press conference. Expect Leon Goretzka to get some serious minutes in this one.
Dusseldorf: Fortuna has been sharp since returning to play with a win and two draws from three games. Those five points have given them a five-point lead over the direct drop zone. A win in this one will likely see them escape 16th place come weekend's end, with the occupant of that spot playing in a relegation playoff at the end of the season.
Bayern gets off to an early lead and has no trouble putting it away in the second half. Pick: Bayern 3, Fortuna Dusseldorf 0.
