Bayern Munich predicted lineup vs Villarreal – Champions League

After a surprise 1-0 defeat in the first leg, Bayern Munich have given themselves work to do if they are to overcome Villarreal and make it through to the Champions League semi-final.

They didn’t exactly get the best preparation for this game at the weekend, limping to a 1-0 win over Augsburg courtesy of a late Robert Lewandowski penalty.

There will need to be changes for Tuesday’s game if Bayern are to be successful, so here’s how Julian Nagelsmann could set up.

Lucas Hernandez

Manuel Neuer (GK) – An obvious starter when fit.

Benjamin Pavard (RB) – Enjoying a nice run of form right now and deserves another start.

Dayot Upamecano (CB) – Yet to really live up to all the hype at Bayern but has pulled off some excellent moments.

Lucas Hernandez (CB) – With Niklas Sule feeling unwell, this is the perfect time for Lucas to return from injury.

Alphonso Davies (LB) – Davies is back after his heart issue and his massive threat will be vital to Bayern’s chances of victory.

Thomas Müller

Joshua Kimmich (DM) – Kimmich hasn’t been good enough in midfield recently but it’s hard to see someone with his quality getting benched.

Leon Goretzka (DM) – Goretzka may need to play a little more conservatively to cover for Kimmich’s defensive deficiencies.

Kingsley Coman (RM) – Bayern’s best attacker at the weekend and he wasn’t even on the pitch for half an hour.

Thomas Muller (AM) – Woefully out of form right now but Muller needs just one moment of magic to make the difference.

Leroy Sane (LM) – Surprisingly deployed on his weaker right side against Augsburg, Sane must return to the left here.

Robert Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski (ST) – The saviour at the weekend, Lewandowski stands a good chance of being the hero this time around too.
