Team News

Atletico Madrid

Atletico will again be without the services of Manu Sanchez, Diego Costa and Sime Vrsaljko through injury on Tuesday, while Hector Herrera remains a serious doubt due to a muscular problem.

Luis Suarez is also unlikely to be available following a recent positive coronavirus test, while the same can be said for Lucas Torreira, with both players needing to return negative tests ahead of the contest.

Angel Correa and Joao Felix are therefore expected to feature as the front two, while Yannick Carrasco could return to the XI, having been named as a substitute against Valencia at the weekend.

Simeone could decide to select a three-man defence, although Felix's expected return is likely to see the home side line up in a 4-4-2 formation with Marcos Llorente operating on the right.
Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Trippier, Savic, Gimenez, Lodi; Llorente, Koke, Saul, Carrasco; Felix, Correa

Bayern Munich
As for Bayern, Joshua Kimmich and Alphonso Davies are still on the sidelines through injury, while Bouna Sarr has missed his team's last three matches and remains a doubt.

Niklas Sule and Corentin Tolisso both made their returns from injury against Stuttgart, though, and could now come into the thinking of Flick when it comes to starting roles on Tuesday.

Leroy Sane is pushing for a start, having featured off the bench against Stuttgart, while Javi Martinez could earn a spot in the middle of the park with Bayern already through to the next round.

The reigning champions will be without the services of Marc Roca on Tuesday, though, as the summer arrival is suspended courtesy of the red card that he picked up against Salzburg last week.
Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Alaba, Hernandez; Goretzka, Martinez; Gnabry, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski
