The UEFA Champions League is back in our lives as we gear up for the final matchday before the chaos of the knockout stage begins. The game we’re going to be looking at today will be contested between Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur, both of whom are already making preparations for the Round of 16. However, with the two sides hitting a few domestic speed bumps along the way, questions have been raised as to just how far both clubs can go in Europe.

Bayern Munich

Bayern would’ve been hoping that they could get their turbulent season back on track, but they’ve really struggled to do so in recent weeks. A new era is dawning both in German football and within Bayern’s squad as a whole, and while that should be an exciting thing, it appears to be more daunting than anything else. They’ve got a great deal of talent within their ranks but they need to find a consistent formation and style that suits them – both in Bundesliga and the Champions League.

Team News

Bayern’s absences still include Hernandez, Arp, Sule and Cruisance, all of whom are out through injury. Boateng and Tolisso, however, have both been declared fit for the game.

Tottenham

Jose Mourinho’s return to English football has certainly served as a positive influence for Tottenham Hotspur, with the Portuguese boss securing four wins in his first five games as manager. There’s still a long way to go before his time at the club can be deemed a success, but even with that being the case, all of the pieces seem to be falling into place for him right now. If he can sustain that over the busy Christmas period, then Spurs could be off to the races.

Team News

Ndombele and Winks are both doubts through injury whereas Lloris, Lamela, Davies and Vorm are already confirmed to be out through injury. Kane will not be making the trip over for the game which could open the door for Troy Parrott to feature.

Factors to Consider

  • In their meeting earlier on this season, Bayern beat Tottenham 7-2.
  • Bayern Munich have won four and lost two of their last six games.
  • Tottenham have won four, drawn one and lost one of their last six games.
  • Bayern Munich have scored 18 goals and conceded four in their last six games.
  • Tottenham have scored 17 goals and conceded nine in their last six games.

Conclusion

We can’t picture anything other than a win for Bayern here in a game that probably won’t mean all too much for either side. Mourinho will probably take the opportunity to rest a few of his star names, and so he should. There’s a lot on the line in the Premier League right now as their schedule continues to get progressively more and more hectic, whereas Bayern will want to make a big statement as they attempt to get their own title race back on track.
