World champions Germany will be without Jérôme Boateng in the last two internationals of the year against San Marino and Italy. The FCB centre-back has been forced to withdraw from the national team squad due to knee and hamstring problems. Boateng was substituted in the closing stages of Saturday's 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim.
Goal record at the Allianz Arena
FC Bayern failed to win their home match against Hoffenheim but set a new club record nonetheless: the Bavarians scored on their home field for the 36th competitive fixture on the bounce, surpassing their previous best mark set from December 2007 to April 2009. The last time the Reds failed to score at the Allianz Arena dates back to May 2015.
