Sadio Mane has been handed a starting jersey ahead of Bayern Munich Super Cup game against RB Leipzig on Saturday.
Mane joined Bayern Munich from Liverpool this season and will be hoping to get his first silverware.
Leipzig placed fourth in the Bundesliga last year, but the DFB Cup victory gave them the chance to compete for the first trophy in 2022–23.
Nkunku capped a career-best season with an estimated 35 goals and 20 assists by scoring the equalizer and the first penalty in the crucial shootout in the championship game versus Freiburg.
