Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Bayern Munchen and Lokomotiv Moscow face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Allianz Arena. The Bundesliga champions have already clinched top position in Group A, meaning that Hansi Flick will use this game to rest key players. Javi Martinez, who suffered an injury in a 3-3 draw with Leipzig, has joined Kimmich, Tillman, and Tolisso in the recovery room. England rising star Musiala, who scored a beautiful goal in the Bundesliga derby, is pushing for a start.
Lokomotiv Moscow, on the other hand, will be without suspended defender Murilo Cerqueira in Wednesday’s clash. The Russian outfit are eyeing a place in the Europa League last 16, but beating Bayern Munchen at Allianz Arena is easier said than done. Regardless of which FCB players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered as the Bavarians have turned their home ground into a real fortress.
