It’s Wednesday which means UCL! This time, Bayern Munich travel to Belgium to take on Anderlecht in the penultimate game of the group stage. The Bavarians will be looking for a dominant win to keep the pressure up on group leaders PSG, who get a visit from Scottish champions Celtic on the night.
Bayern will be without Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller, and Franck Ribery, all of whom are out due to various injuries. David Alaba and Kingsley Coman remain doubtful for the game, as does Thiago Alcantara. However, the backups on the squad should be more than a match for the Belgian champions, who gave Carlo Ancelotti’s team so much trouble right at the beginning of the group stage.
It’s Bayern time.
