Benfica Team News
Andre Almeida, like Gil Dias and Valentino Lazaro, was forced off with a muscle ailment in Benfica’s first match against Bayern and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
Forwards Haris Seferovic and Rodrigo Pinho are both out for the time being, while Roman Yaremchuk was taken off after 45 minutes at the weekend, which was regarded to be a tactical decision.
At the weekend, Nemanja Radonjic was given a rare start on the right side, but Gilberto and Diogo Goncalves are now battling it out to keep Sane or Coman quiet this week.
Bayern Munich Team News
Goretzka missed the win over Union due to a bruised heel, and he, along with Alphonso Davies (muscle), is questionable for this match. Lucas Hernandez is also questionable after suffering a knee injury in league action, despite exercising.
If Hernandez and Upamecano are both booked here, they will miss the matchday five match against Dynamo, but the latter might fill in for his injured teammate as Tolisso and Sabitzer want to take advantage of Goretzka’s possible absence.
Both Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala are pushing for a return to the final third, but it’s hard to see the hosts making any changes to their forward line when qualifying is still a long way off.
Bayern Munich XI:
Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Upamecano, Davies; Kimmich, Sabitzer; Sane, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski
Vlachodimos; Verissimo, Otamendi, Vertonghen; Goncalves, Weigl, Mario, Grimaldo; Silva, Yaremchuk, Nunez
