Bayern Munich will brace themselves for a tough challenge ahead as they host Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. The Bavarians are coming on the back of a 4-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld. Still, they could be in for a very different ballgame, against one of the strongest sides in European football this midweek.
Predicted Bayern Munich Lineup Vs Atletico Madrid
Hansi Flick could be tempted to shuffle his pack following the Arminia game. However, considering the quality of the opponent, the Bayern Munich head coach might just retain the services of key stars like David Alaba, Niklas Sule and Benjamin Pavard in defence this midweek.
The combination of Sule and Alaba, in particular, could be key as the Bavarians once again look to employ a high defensive line in the Champions League. Jerome Boateng is an option, however, while Tanguy Nianzou and Chris Richards are both out injured.
There could be one change in defence though, with Alphonso Davies replacing Lucas Hernandez at left-back. The Canadian must perform well this midweek to compete with Hernandez, who has enjoyed a stunning start to the new season.
Manuel Neuer, meanwhile, is a guaranteed starter in between the sticks.
Joshua Kimmich was given a breather on the weekend by Flick as his partner Lina Meyer was expecting a baby. The German international is almost guaranteed to return to the starting lineup this midweek.
Kimmich should assume his role at defensive midfield, partnering Leon Goretzka in the double-pivot. The aggression of these two midfielders could be critical against an equally dynamic second line of press from Atletico Madrid.
Marc Roca could also be an interesting option as the Spaniard has a lot of experience of playing against Atletico Madrid while Corentin Tolliso has shown some excellent form in these early parts of the campaign.
Moving forward, Serge Gnabry was hooked off around the hour mark, so he is likely to start once again at right-wing. There might be a change on the opposite flank, though, with Douglas Costa replacing Kingsley Coman while Leroy Sane remains out injured.
Thomas Muller, meanwhile, is expected to operate in the number ten role, providing creative support to Robert Lewandowski, who scored two goals against Arminia and will be desperate to extend his scoring tally this midweek.
