Kim Min-jae is expected to return to the starting lineup after playing a hectic schedule recently.
Bavarian Football reported the expected starting lineups for Bayern Munich and Cologne on Thursday (Sept. 24). Munich and Cologne will meet in the 12th round of the German Bundesliga at the Rhein-Energie-Stadion in Cologne, Germany, at 4:30 a.m. on Sept. 25.
This is Munich’s first game after the November A-match period. From here, a tight schedule of matches every three to four days begins until mid-December. Starting with a trip to Cologne, Munich will play a UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage match against Copenhagen and a league match against Union Berlin.
They then take a week off before facing Frankfurt, Manchester United, Stuttgart, and Wolfsburg. On December 21, the team will take a three-week break. In January, the transfer market will open, so it”s important to keep the players fit before then.
Munich’s expected starting lineup against Cologne is a 4-2-3-1 formation with Harry Kane up front. Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller, and Kingsley Coman will support him, with Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich in the midfield.
The back four will consist of Alfonso Davies, Kim Min-Jae, Dayo Upamecano, and Konrad Reimer, with Manuel Neuer in goal. Furthermore, Bavarian Football reports that Matthias Der Licht and Jamal Musalla will be absent, while Rafael Guerreiro is also doubtful.
As a result, Kim Min-jae is likely to make his 17th start in all competitions so far this season. It’s been a tough stretch. Kim joined Munich this summer. He is now in his third year in Europe, having left Beijing Guoan for Fenerbahçe ahead of the 2021-22 season. He immediately made his presence felt and attracted interest from a number of teams. 무지개토토 주소
This led to a transfer just a year after joining Fenerbahçe. Napoli was the first team to snap him up, as they were in need of defensive reinforcements following the departure of Kalidou Koulibaly to Chelsea. At first, the signing of Kim came with some question marks. Kim had never played in the big leagues before. However, Koulibaly was a veteran of the Italian Serie A for nearly a decade.
It didn’t take long for Kim to prove himself. Kim became a key center back for Napoli, helping the team win its first title in 33 years, since the 1989-90 season. For his efforts, he was named Serie A’s best defender.
