Bayern Munich hand a start to Toni Kroos in their clash with relegation strugglers Hamburger SV in week 33 of the German Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich have handed a start to Toni Kroos ahead of their clash with relegation strugglers Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga this afternoon.

Kroos is to be given a free role in the Bayern starting XI, as he provides creative support for Thomas Muller.

Bayern feature an enterprising midfield consisting of Arjen Robben, Mario Gotze, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez.

Hamburger have opted for a 4-5-1 formation, which sees the hosts utilise Ivo Ilicevic as a lone striker.

The frontman will be supported by a five-man midfield made up of Tomas Rincon, Robert Tesche, Milan Badelj, Rafael van der Vaart and Hakan Calhanoglu.

Hamburger SV: Alder; Diekmeier, Westermann, Mancienne, Jiracek, Rincon, Tesche, Badelj, van der Vaart, Calhanoglu, Ilicevic.

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Dante, Martínez, Robben, Boateng, Gotze, Lahm, Müller, Alaba, Schweinsteiger, Kroos
