Tuesday at 21:45, the ‘Allianz Arena’ in Munich, Bayern receives the visit of FK Rostov, in a match of Group D of the UEFA Champions League.
We want to win the UEFA Champions League, it is obietivul. We are aware that we are not the only team that we want, but we have to fight, said Manuel Neuer, Bayern goalkeeper said on uefa.com
Bayern Munich start this edition of the Champions League from the position of favorite to win Group D, where fighting with Atletico Madrid, PSV and FK Rostov. Carlo Ancelotti’s players morale is quite high, as Bayern dominate sumptuous international competition, with goal difference 8-0 after the first two games and maximum points. At the end of last week, Bayern has evolved in Gelsenkirchen, where he met his Schalke, who defeated 2-0 thanks to goals by Lewandowski and Kimmich.
Lot Info: Kingsley Coman and Holger Badstuber are injured and will not perform.
We are very well trained to give a proper reply opponent and show that we can handle the pressure, said Ivan Danilyants manager of FK Rostov, told uefa.com
FK Rostov has four participations in European Cups, this is the best performance of vice Russia. To access the group phase last FK Rostov had two very difficult opponents, however, were not up to the Russians. In the third round preliminary Rostov played with Anderlecht, which eliminated it 4-2 on aggregate, and had a play-off match and easier, but this time in the company of Ajax, which they have managed to win 5-2 on aggregate.
Bayern (4-3-3): Neuer – Lahm – Martinez – Hummels – Alaba – Vidal – Alonso – Alcantara – Muller – Lewandowski – Costa
FK Rostov (3-5-2): Dzhanaev – Novoseitsev – Navas – Kudryashov – Kireev – Kalachev – Gatcan – Erokhin – Bayramyan – Poloz – Bukharov
Bayern feels very well with Ancelotti at the helm, as he did with Guardiola. Bavarians game is more alert and that meet a newcomer in UCL makes the game even more attractive. However, Bayern remains one of the best teams in the world at home, as evidence that in the previous edition of the UEFA Champions League and has won all the matches on ‘Allianz Arena’ In conclusion, I expect Bayern to control the game entirely, but if they take advantage of two goals, they will not force this reason it’s hard to believe that we can see a rain of goals.
