    Rode to start? He was great against them in September

      They're missing five(!) players through yellow-card suspensions accrued last match.

          I convince myself that Rode has to be a starter before every single match and always end up disappointed. The only reason he'll stay beyond this summer is the new coach, because he's done very well when we needed him but yet sits on the bench forever while Vidal gets rewarded for average performances.

          Bayern away is the perfect matchday to get yellow card suspensions out of the way. They'd hardly take any points anyway. Much smart, very thoughtful.

            Rode > Vidal (based solely on this years performances obviously )

              Before we signed Vidal and PSG extended their contract with Verratti, I was hoping we'd sign him and eventually play a Rode-Verratti Doppelsechs.

              Verratti is definitely a bit overrated but is a damn fine player anyway. It would be a great midfield, full of hard work and relentlessness.

              But back to the topic: Rode has to start.

                  Alaba-Kimmich worked pretty well. I doubt Darmstadt will put more pressure on them than Augsburg did.

                    would be good to have Tasci some minutes to run

                      Totally forgot we've signed him.

                      I think you're right. Maybe we could give Lahm and Alaba/Kimmich a full rest or a 45' break. Resting players do help keeping them fit. Given that we'll be playing a compromised Darmstadt at home, two great options for that are:

                      -- Bernat -- Tasci -- Kimmich -- Rafinha
                      or
                      -- Bernat -- Alaba -- Tasci -- Rafinha

                        Benatia should play some minutes too

                          I thought this too at first, but it's actually not true. Because the BuLi uses goal difference instead of head-to-head (like La Liga does) to decide point draws, it very much matters how many goals a team concedes. Just because they may be pretty sure they will lose doesn't mean they want to lose by 10+ goals. They have a strong incentive to lose by a goal or two rather than by a whole slew of them. Because of this, it doesn't really make too much sense to eat the suspensions all at once. Maybe one or two were on purpose but 5 at once? That would just be criminally stupid.

                            Did a quick Wiki run here and found five pairs of teams tied in points in the last three Bundesliga seasons (out of 51 ties possible theoretically?). It's a 10% chance to tie in points with another team. A bit more than that because the chances are higher on the bottom half of the table where Darmstadt are more likely to end up, but everyone beyond 13th place is expected to take a beating or two from Bayern anyway.

                            What are we doing with our lives anyway? Hahaha
