There’s no beating around the bush: Tuesday’s match against Real Madrid in the Champions League is the biggest match of the season. Bayern Munich have their hands full with a 1-2 deficit that they have to overcome.

With Robert Lewandowski back in training and ready to go in the match, that leaves Carlo Ancelotti with only two areas of concern that he must figure out before he names his starting lineup.

Defensively, everything hinges on the health of Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng and whether or not the two centerbacks can start. If one or both cannot go, Bayern will be in big trouble. Are you preparing for a David Alaba and Joshua Kimmich start at centerback?
