Match Day Thread: FC Bayern vs. BATE Borisov

Dennis Grombkowski

With one match to go in Champions League play, FC Bayern has already secured passage through to the knockout stage. But the club still has work to do to earn a first-place finish: a win for Bayern would lock it up. A loss or draw could still get us a top finish if our result is equal or better than that of Valencia CF (they play Lille at the same time). A chance for Bayern to finish the fall campaign on a strong note in ...

Match Day 6 of the 2012-2013 Champions League group stage. Bayern is coming off a 1-1 draw vs. Dortmund, although it's actually been 9 matches since we lost (to Leverkusen on October 28). But, as we well know, BATE has enough to beat us if they play their game and catch a few breaks. Your line-ups:

For FC Bayern

Gomez

Shaqiri - Kroos - Mueller

Tymoschuk - Schweisnteiger

Contento - Boateng - van Buyten - Rafinha

Neuer

Some serious rotation, there, Mr. Heynckes. I like it, though. We may need these dudes down the road.

For BATE Borisov

Kontsevoy - Hleb - Rodionov

Volodko - Oledhnovich - Baha

Polyakov - Radkov - Bordachev - Filipenko

Gorbunov

This should be interesting. Keep half an eye on VCF vs. Lille, and half an eye on Shakhtar vs. Juve. And one whole eye on the Bayern match.

Viva viva FC Bayern!
