Team News: Bayern Munich
Tom Hülsmann (Hamstring injury), Matthijs de Ligt (Inner knee ligament tear), Tarek Buchmann (Torn muscle bundle) and Jamal Musiala (Hamstring injury) won’t be available for Bayern Munich gaffer Thomas Tuchel.
It looks as if Bayern may well kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Manuel Neuer, Konrad Laimer, Leon Goretzka, Dayot Upamecano, Alphonso Davies, Joshua Kimmich, Raphael Guerreiro, Kingsley Coman, Thomas Mueller, Mathys Tel and Harry Kane.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
FC Copenhagen boss Jacob Neestrup has to choose a team with limited availability. Birger Meling (Muscle fiber tear), William Clem (Broken foot) and Davit Khocholava (Knee problems) are not able to play.
We are inclined to think that FCK could decide to make use of a 3-4-2-1 lineup, settling for Kamil Grabara, Elias Jelert, Denis Vavro, Kevin Diks, Nicolai Boilesen, Lukas Lerager, Diogo Goncalves, Rasmus Falk, Roony Bardghji, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Viktor Claesson.
We’re thinking that Bayern Munich will most probably stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
In contrast, FC Copenhagen might well find it a difficult task to make a breakthrough but we can see them being dangerous at times.
Our selection here is for a fairly comfortable 3-1 margin for Bayern Munich at full-time.
