Bayern Munich will host Viktoria Plzen at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening, with the goal of securing a positive result in front of their home fans.
The Bavarian giants recently won 4-0 against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, which will boost their confidence ahead of this UEFA Champions League match.
Hansi Flick is likely to go with a 4-2-3-1 formation and will make some changes to his starting lineup for this game. Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry will start in place of Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller, who tested positive for Covid-19.
4-2-3-1 Bayern Munich’s Expected Lineup Against Viktoria Plzen
Manuel Neuer will start in goal for the Munich club after keeping a clean sheet in his previous appearance. Dayot Upamecano will resume his center-half partnership with Matthijs de Ligt at the heart of Bayern’s defense as they attempt to keep things solid for the full 90 minutes.
At right-back, Benjamin Pavard is a foregone conclusion, while Alphonse Davies hopes to make an impression at left-back. Both of them would be eager to advance at any opportunity.
Noussair Mazraoui will be named to the bench to cover the defensive positions.
Marcel Sabitzer and Leon Goretzka will play as holding midfielders, looking to dominate possession in the center of the field and set up a few inviting chances on the attacking end of the field.
As part of Bayern’s attack, the talented trio of Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala, and Leroy Sane will operate just ahead of them.
Both Gnabry and Sane will be in charge of stretching the pitch in wide areas, while Jamal Musiala will look to impress from the number ten position.
Ryan Gravenberch and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will have to settle for a place on the bench while they await their chance to make an impact in the second half, if necessary.
Sadio Mane will lead Flick’s attack from the top. The Senegal international got his name on the scoresheet and is looking forward to this European match against Plzen in midweek.
Mathys Tel will be on Flick’s bench, but he could come on late in the game if Bayern is in desperate need of a goal.
