Bayern Munich are looking to continue their winning momentum when they travel to Moscow to face Lokomotiv in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Bavarians secured a magnificent 4-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the opening fixture, which was then followed by a 5-0 thumping of Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. So it will be interesting to see whether or not they can continue their scoring form in this match.
Predicted Bayern Munich Lineup Vs Lokomotiv Moscow
Hansi Flick rested a few of his key defenders against Eintracht on Saturday. As such, Benjamin Pavard is more than guaranteed to replace Bouna Sarr at right-back, while Lucas Hernandez could also hope for a berth in the starting lineup, at the expense of Alphonso Davies on the opposite flank.
Alexander Nubel has been a bit unlucky with the lack of chances. But given the quality of the opposition, combined with a 4-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the opening fixture, coach Flick might just be tempted to hand him a rare opportunity in goal for FC Bayern this midweek.
Elsewhere, Niklas Sule is set to return in central defence, replacing Jerome Boateng. The German international is likely to form the central defensive partnership alongside David Alaba as Bayern continue to play with a high defensive line in Champions League matches.
Leon Goretzka might have to settle for a place on the bench as Flick looks to shuffle his pack in midfield. It essentially means that the in-form Corentin Tolisso should return to the setup, especially after scoring against Atleti.
The Frenchman should operate in the double-pivot, alongside the ever-present figure of Joshua Kimmich. Marc Roca and Javi Martinez are also options for Bayern Munich in the middle of the park.
There could be wholesale changes in the attack for the away side as the new signings in Douglas Costa, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Leroy Sane look to make the starting lineup.
Sane made a welcome return from injury on the weekend and could operate at left-wing, with Costa occupying the opposite flank. There might be a start for youngster Jamal Musiala in the attacking midfield role, at the expense of Thomas Muller.
Choupo-Moting, meanwhile, will hope to replace Robert Lewandowski in the number nine role, even though the Pole did score a hat-trick in the win over Eintracht.
