Champions League second leg: Bayern Munich vs Man City confirmed lineups

Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern Munich suffered a heavy three goal defeat against Pep Guardiola’s Man City in the first leg of UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. Can they turn this around in the second leg?

Bayern Munich come into this fixture on the back of a 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim in the league, reclaiming the top spot from Dortmund in the process. The Bavarian giants have lost their previous two encounters against Man City and will be hoping to become the fifth side to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg.

Guardiola’s Man City took another step towards the Premier League title with a win over Leicester City at the weekend. Manchester City have a formidable record against German opponents in the UCL, losing just one game in 20 meetings against sides from Germany. They are unbeaten in their nine knockout games against German sides.

Tuchel had the upper hand in the duel against Guardiola but the latter has bounced back and won the last three against the German manager’s side, not conceding a single goal in process.

Bayern Munich XI (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Pavard, Upamecano, De Ligt, Cancelo; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Musiala, Coman; Choupo-Moting

Man City XI (3-2-4-1): Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Ake; Rodri, Stones; Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland
