Bayern v Liverpool: Team news, probable lineup & predictions

Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 12/03/2019

Bayern Munich is set to host Liverpool in the reverse fixture of the Champions League at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening, here are few details you need to know before big clash against these teams.

TEAM NEWS:

BAYERN MUNICH:

The German Champions will be without Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich due to suspension, while Arjen Robben and Corentin Tolisso are out due to calf and knee injury respectively.

LIVERPOOL:

Trent Alexander- Arnold and James Milner are doubtful for the clash against the German outfit due to a knock they sustained during the clash against Burnley last weekend in the Premier League.

HEAD TO HEAD:

Bayern Munich and Liverpool have met on only six previous occasions and boast a win each, with four draws.

RECENT FORMS:

BAYERN MUNICH:

The Bavarian has been in form at the moment, having won four of their last five games with the only draw coming against Liverpool in the Champions League.

Niko Kovac’s men top the Bundesliga table after coming from behind to level with Borussia Dortmund on points but sit on top of the log on goal difference.

LIVERPOOL:

The Reds have not been really impressive this time of the season, though they came from behind to win against Burnley in the Premier League, the fact they gave away the lead of the Premier League to Manchester is a sign they slowed down a bit in terms of performance.

PREDICTIONS:

Bayern Munich 2-1 Liverpool

PROBABLE LINEUPS:

BAYERN MUNICH:

Neuer, Rafinha, Sule, Hummels, Alaba, Martinez, Thiago, James Rodriguez, Gnabry, Ribery, Lewandowski

LIVERPOOL:

Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Firmino, Mane
