Bayern's Champions League campaign kicks off in just a few minutes in front of a packed house at the Allianz Arena.

I'm writing this at 9 AM, so no word on line-ups yet. I'll try to post them in the comments as they become available. We'll be back after the match with a recap and video highlights, hopefully not too long after the final whistle. Viva viva FC Bayern!
