The final group stage of the 2016-17 UEFA Champions League match approaches, and last season’s runners-up come to the Allianz Arena looking to “do the double” over Bayern Munich. Bayern will look to avoid their third loss in the group stage.

The match is absolutely meaningless standings-wise. Bayern are a full six points behind Atletico Madrid in the table following the shocking defeat in Rostov. While “pride” is always on the line, a victory over Atleti could help bring some confidence that comes with beating one of Europe’s elite teams.

It’s very possible that Carlo Ancelotti will have a full roster to choose from in the match. With Kingsley Coman and Julian Green as the only long-term injuries, don’t be surprised if he unleashes Robbery on Atleti’s defense.

We asked three of our writers to predict what lineup Ancelotti will play against Atleti.

Predicted lineups

Phillip

Ribery - Lewandowski - Robben
Vidal - Alonso - Thiago
Alaba - Hummels - Boateng - Lahm
Neuer

Costa - Lewandowski - Müller
Sanches - Thiago - Vidal
Bernat - Hummels - Boateng - Kimmich
Neuer

Valentin

Costa - Lewandowski - Robben
Müller
Kimmich - Vidal
Bernat - Hummels - Boateng - Rafinha
Neuer

Who do you think Carlo Ancelotti is going to start against Atletico Madrid in Tuesday’s Champions League match?
