Bayern Munich who have maintained 100 percent start to champions league campaign this season,will be looking to maintain that when they welcome Barcelona at Allianz Arena.

The champions league encounter with FC Barcelona will be played in closed due to rampant spread of Covid 19, in the German Capital Munich.

Bayern who at the weekend won their encounter and der klassiker against borrusia Dortmund in what is Bundesliga’s biggest game. The encounter ended in the favour of the Bavarians 3:2.

The Bavarians manager will be looking to rotate his squad ahead of the champions league encounter,where he’ll also love to maintain 100 percent start to the campaign.

It’s a decisive week in the Champions League for Barcelona and they have to face the mighty Bayern Munich in Germany.

The Bavarians are already through and the game against Barça is not important to them in theory. Kicker say they may make up to four changes.

They are predicting a three-man defence, Sule, Upamecano and Lucas Hernandez, and two wide men, Gnabry and Davies. In midfield, a four: Marc Roca and Tolisso, with Muller and Musical ahead. And in attack, Robert Lewandowski.

Roca has only played in gone game this season, against Dynamo Kiev, playing 23 minutes. He would take Joshua Kimmich’s spot, while Tolisso could replace Goretzka.

The system of three defenders would sacrifice Sane, the second top scorer with eight goals, the same as Gnabry, and hand Musiala a start, his first since the end of October.
