Opportunity could be knocking for Maximilian Mittelstädt this weekend, with Hertha coach Pal Dardai admitting he would have no qualms about fielding the 19-year-old for only the fourth time this season against Bayern. Dardai insists he will not be adding him to his current back four, however, because he wants his team to keep the same shape and system as usual. That is not to say personnel changes will not be made, and Vedad Ibisevic is a minor doubt with an ankle injury.

Victory over Arsenal in the Champions League in midweek may have taken a bit of the energy out of Bayern's players and Carlo Ancelotti has often rotated his team this season after European matches. Xabi Alonso and Philipp Lahm – two of his veterans – have often been the ones granted a break and that could mean starts for Rafinha and Douglas Costa, although the Italian is not forced to make any changes.
