Official Fantasy Bundesliga Managers take note: bundesliga.com is on hand to provide likely line-ups as well as injury and suspension news ahead of Matchday 5.
Hamburg head coach Bruno Labbadia had to make do without the services of Filip Kostic during mid-week due to an adductor injury. Should the winger be able to prove his fitness in time for Saturday, he will likely slot into the starting line-up in place of Gian-Luca Waldschmidt. Elsewhere, Alen Halilovic is pushing to make his first Bundesliga start of the season.
With the games coming thick and fast for Bayern, head coach Carlo Ancelotti has expressed the need to rotate his side in light of Wednesday's trip to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. Jerome Boateng and Arjen Robben will both have to settle for a place on the bench, while only Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski are guaranteed to start.
