DRN Vs BAY Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Holders Bayern Munich begin their defence with a first round tie against fifth tier Duren.

Despite Bayern Munich set to field a massively weakened playing 11 today, the 2019-20 winners of the DFB Pokal Cup will have little qualms in getting past today’s opponents. With 142 spots separating these two sides in the German footballing arena, today’s impending first round clash in the DFB Pokal Cup 2020-21 comes bearing with it the identity of a complete mismatch.

For Bayern Munich, there couldn’t have been a more ideal encounter to resume action in the arena. With players still cooling off after their participating in the recently concluded international set of clashes, this matchup allows Bayern Munich to send out a makeshift side knowing it won’t affect the outcome of the clash.

While discrediting Duren even before the clash gets underway won’t be fair to them, the massive gulf in quality is there for all to see. Where Bayern Munich are current champions of everything the German arena has to offer, Duren find themselves struggling in sixth spot in the Oberliga.

However, despite the clear disparity in quality in these two sides, Duren know they can life treacherous for Bayern Munich on ample occasions today. Having won their last three fixtures, Duren will be looking to utilise that form to perturb a Bayern Munich side largely made up of second string names.

Bayern Munich Vs Hertha Berlin: 4-3


Duren’s goal-keeper, Kevin Jackmuth will be inducted in our side as the shot stopper for today. He’s one of the more well versed names at the club, a player who is endowed with the necessary nitty gritties required of a worldclass goal-keeper.


For all of Bayern Munich’s might and dominance in German football, the side has been jittery when it comes to the defensive side of the game this season. The side has persistently gone onto ship goals in the opening exchanges of the Bundesliga, a predicament which has left the team with the one defeat in three ties.

However, that peril paired with a new look backline today hardly dissuades us from making this docket all about the picks from Bayern Munich. They are up against a side which has offered little when it comes to attack, a side which could easily offer Bayern Munich a much needed cleansheet.

It sees us reign in the trio of Bouna Sarr, Jerome Boateng and Alphonso Davies from the side for the day’s events.


For Douglas Costa who has been left in the cold by Bayern Munich, today’s clash is a colossal tie. An impressive outing could see him once again claim a spot in his side’s gameplan, a fixture he’s set to come out hammer and tongs in.

Slotting in next to him is Javi Martinez who scored a crucial goal for the side the last time he was involved for them. Duren on the other hand see us opt for two more defensive minded names in Adis Omerbasic and Gjorgji Antoski, players who’ll be looking to clobber Bayern Munich’s onslaught.


New signing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is all set to make an appearance in Bayern Munich’s playing 11 for the first time today. He’s previously scored on four occasions in the tournament and with him spearheading his side’s attack, he can easily add to that tally.

Thomas Muller joins up while the opposition see us move in for top scorer Marc Brasnic courtesy of the four goals he’s scored for the club.

Captain And Vice-Captain

With Eric set to open his goal scoring account today, he’ll be captaining our side while Javi is the vice-captain.
