Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that he will not have James Rodriguez, Robben, Alaba, Neuer, Thiago and Bernat for this game. But he will count with several new faces for this game like Süle and Rudy, both coming from Hoffenheim.
Also, the preseason showed with poor results the lack of effectiveness of the German King, but for Arturo Vidal the important match is at Signal Iduna Park and we will see the real Bayern.

It will be a great way to start the 2017/2018 season in Germany, with a symbolic clash: The historic and all-powerful Bayern Munchen, League Champion, against a rebel with aspiration of giant, BVB, monarch of the cup. “Der Klassiker” the most explosive combo to open the campaign.
