Starting XI: Atletico vs Bayern

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich head over to the Spanish capital to face Atletico Madrid in their next UEFA Champions League tie – here's how the teams will line up.

It has been five months since the two sides met in last season's semi-final, which saw the Spaniards progress thanks to the away goal rule.

Atletico came through a tough first-round tie away at Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, winning 1-0, while the Bavarians hammered Russian side FC Rostov 5-0 at home.

The Germans have won just two of their past 10 away fixtures in the competition, while the Spanish side is unbeaten in their past six fixtures at home against German opposition.

Last year's UCL finalists have a good record against Bundesliga opponents, having won 12, drawn two and lost three times in 17 matches against German opposition. 

Bayern, on the other hand, don't quite have the same record – they have won only six out of 24 matches in Spain.

If you're looking for goalscorers in this match, then it will be worthwhile looking at Robert Lewandowski (Marshalls' odds: Lewandowski to score at 1.9) and Thomas Muller from Bayern (Marshalls' odds: Muller to score at 2.2), while Kevin Gameiro (Marshalls' odds: Gameiro to score at 2) is the player we think Atletico will look to for goals.

Here is how the sides will line up:

Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Juanfran, Savić, Godín, Filipe Luís; Koke, Ñíguez, Gabi, Carrasco; Griezmann, Torres.

Bayern Munich: Neuer Lahm, Boateng, Martínez, Alaba, Vidal, Alonso, Thiago, Müller, Lewandowski, Ribéry.
