Team News
Bayern Munich
With positive COVID cases for both Muller and Kimmich, there will be a few changes to the Bayern Munich starting lineup for this one.

Marcel Sabitzer is likely to start in the deeper midfield as he did in their previous fixture, with Goretzka alongside him, after his recovery from COVID saw him make a substitute appearance on Friday.

The replacement for Muller is less clear, with summer signing Mathys Tel a potential option to lead the forward line but also an array of false nine options including Sadio Mane, Sane or the in-form Jamal Musiala.

Lucas Hernandez, Kingsley Coman and Bouna Sarr will also miss out through injury for the hosts.
Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Davies, Upamecano, de Ligt, Pavard; Goretzka, Sabitzer, Sane, Musiala, Mane; Tel

Viktoria Plzen
Viktoria Plzen will be without midfielder Pavel Bucha as he was sent off in their previous Champions League fixture against Inter Milan, with Ales Cermak or Jan Kopic the most likely to come into the starting 11.

The three-at-the-back formation used against Inter Milan saw more success than the four-at-the-back formation when playing Barcelona, so it would be expected that the three would be preferable.
Viktoria Plzen possible starting lineup:
Stanek; Jemelka, Hejda, Pernica; Havel, Cermak, Kalvach, Sykora, Vikanova; Chory, Mosquera
Prediction: Bayern Munich 4-0 Viktoria Plzen
