Julian Nagelsmann will be hoping he can get his first Bundesliga win on the board in charge of Bayern Munich as they take on FC Koln.
Bayern were held by Borussia Monchengladbach on the opening day, while Koln’s opening day win over Hertha Berlin was a real confidence booster for all at the club.
It has been a tricky start for Julian Nagelsmann at Bayern Munich but he will be hoping that the midweek German Super Cup win over Borussia Dortmund can be the catalyst moving forward.
He has a side packed with both youth and experience and competing both in Germany and in Europe will be key markers as to his success this season.
Manuel Neuer is still one of the best goalkeepers in the world and he will be looking to prove that once again this term.
The back line at Bayern has been freshened up this season and the likes of Dayot Upamecano and Niklas Sule will be out to prove they have what it takes at the top of the game.
Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich will be looking to put disappointing Euro 2020 campaigns behind them as the season gets up and running, the same could be said of Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane.
Robert Lewandowski is the arguably best striker in the world currently and despite media reports stating he wants to leave the club, he will be key to Bayern once again this term.
Having only just stayed up by the skin of their teeth in the Bundesliga last season, FC Koln will be delighted to have already put three points on the board this term.
With Sven Baumgart at the helm, they look to be more assured and they will be looking forward to a top-half finish.
Timo Horn is a respected Bundesliga goalkeeper and he will need to be at his best in between the sticks for Koln this term.
Timo Hübers and Rafael Czichos were the preferred centre-back partnership for Koln last time out and they will be looking to build on that here.
Florian Kainz proved to be the match-winner for Koln against Hertha Berlin and he will be eager to put in a repeat performance here.
Anthony Modeste will be leading the line for Koln, he too netted last week and looks to be playing with confidence.
