Ah...the Champions League is back, baby!

Bayern Munich will travel to Lisbon, Portugal to take on Benfica in what should be a very entertaining match between an extremely deep and talented squad for the visitors and an experienced, veteran squad in Benfica.

Here is what we have on tap for this episode:

  • The recent form of both clubs.
  • A couple of players that Bayern Munich fans should keep an eye on: Darwin Nunez and Julian Weigl. Nunez has been loosely linked to the Bavarians, while Weigl is a one-time Borussia Dortmund and German national team prospect, who seems to have found a comfort zone in Portugal.
  • A prediction for the lineup and why we could see Lucas Hernandez at eft-back and Marcel Sabitzer filling in for Leon Goretzka.
  • A prediction on the final score.

As always, thanks for your support and let us know what you think!
