Bayern hand debuts to three youngsters against Eintracht Frankfurt

Three players will make their senior debuts when Bayern Munich host Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

With the second leg of their Champions League semi-final clash with Real Madrid to come on Tuesday, Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes has rested a number of key players for the visit of Eintracht, with Meritan Shabani, Franck Evina and Niklas Dorsch all being drafted in to make their first-team bows.

Meanwhile, after making his debut in last week’s win over Hannover 96, Lars Lukas Mai will celebrate signing his first professional contract by keeping his place in the side.

Here are the two starting line-ups in full…

Shabani is a 19-year-old German attacking midfielder while Evina is a 17-year-old Cameroon-born German U-18 international winger.

Dorsch, 20, plays in midfield and has drawn comparisons with Real Madrid and Germany star Toni Kroos.
