Harry Kane of Bayern Munich celebrates goal

Despite their 2-0 victory over Koln on Saturday, Bayern Munich know for a fact since Sunday that they lost the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen. With that, they also know with certainty that the only competition in which they have something to gain this season is the UEFA Champions League. The 2-2 draw in the first leg at the Emirates gives this home leg for Bayern a winner-take-all status. Last Word on Football brings you our Bayern Munich predicted lineup for the game.

How Bayern Munich Have Lined Up Recently

Bayern began the previous game with Sven Ulreich in goal. Joshua Kimmich and Noussair Mazraoui started on the flanks, as Matthijs de Ligt played centre-back alongside Eric Dier. The holding midfielder pairing was completely changed, with Raphael Guerreiro and Aleksandar Pavlovic lining up there. Meanwhile, Mathys Tel, Thomas Müller, Kingsley Coman as well as Harry Kane made up the front four.

Compared to the first leg of the Arsenal game, Ulreich replaced Manuel Neuer in goal. Beyond that, Guerreiro, Mazraoui, Pavlovic, Coman, Müller, and Tel came in for Alphonso Davies, Leon Goretzka, Konrad Laimer, as well as Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sané, and Serge Gnabry. That amount of change was something that the team had not used so far this season, although most of that rotation was forced to varying degrees.

Bayern Munich Recent Form and Tactics

The Koln win was the first victory in four competitive matches for the Bavarians. In the last 10 encounters, Bayern have won five, drawing two and losing the other three. However, if we learned anything from the first leg in particular, it was that the team’s focus and desire trumped both lineup and tactics. If the Bavarians can get those two attributes from the start, the home atmosphere will surely also help carry them to victory.

If not, the crowd will turn against them and they will bow out of the competition. For the last three seasons, Bayern exited the Champions League in this round. However, they will be hopeful because unlike on those occasions, they did not lose the first leg this time around.

Bayern Munich Injuries to Consider

Almost tragically at this point, Coman will miss weeks due to a muscular problem. He joins Sacha Boey as well as Bouna Sarr on the injury list. Meanwhile, Neuer and Sané should be back in the team, as coach Thomas Tuchel confirmed to the media on Tuesday. Davies, however, will miss the game due to a yellow card suspension.
