Robert Lewandowski leads the line with Leroy Sané and Kingsley Coman in support. Thomas Müller and Corentin Tolisso play in midfield with Serge Gnabry completing an attacking line-up.
The German champions are without a host of key players for tonight’s Champions League last-16 first-leg tie against RB Salzburg.
Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has been ruled out for several weeks after undergoing surgery on his right knee, while Alphonso Davies remains sidelined with a Covid-related heart issue.
Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann has said the Canadian international is “on the road to recovery.” But the coach admitted “it is still going to take a while” before he returns.
German midfielder Leon Goretzka is missing due to a knee problem, meanwhile.
Neuer’s understudy Sven Ulreich will start in goal against Salzburg tonight.
Jamal Musiala is sidelined with illness and Josip Stanisic has a thigh issue. Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 37 goals in 30 appearances for Bayern this season, leads the line as usual.
