Bayern have the opportunity to take 15 points out of their Champions League group stage for only the third time.

It's hard to believe that the group stage of this season's Champions League will be done after today's match against CSKA Moscow. The Russians return to the Allianz Arena for the second straight season, but they'll be hoping for a different result than the 3-1 loss they suffered last season.

FC Bayern are playing for pride today, as first place in the group was secured before the last match against Manchester City. Pep Guardiola has been talking squad rotation ahead of these last few matches before the winter break, so it'll be interested to see what kind of squad the Spaniard throws at us on the day.
