Champions League 17/3/2021 & Others: Selected Team News
8pm Bayern Munich v Lazio
- David Alaba missed the 3-1 win over Werder Bremen due to injury and is a doubt for Bayern.
- Douglas Costa, Corentin Tolisso and Tanguy Nianzou all miss out for the home side.
- Bayern have recovered Thomas Muller and Benjamin Pavard from the first leg, which is bad news for Lazio.
- Manuel Lazzari and Luiz Felipe are both ruled out for Lazio, with Mohamed Fares expected to deputise for the former, which would see Adam Marusic switch over to the right.
- While Lazio have little chance of overcoming Bayern, Simone Inzaghi may elect to make few changes from the side that lost 4-1 in the first leg.
- Wesley Hoedt is pushing for a start at the expense of Mateo Musacchio at centre-back.
Chelsea v Atletico Madrid
- Jorginho and Mason Mount are both suspended for the second leg due to an accumulation of yellow cards in the competition.
- Thomas Tuchel has concerns over Tammy Abraham’s ankle injury and the striker should miss out again here, while Thiago Silva also missed the 0-0 draw with Leeds.
- Tuchel used a 4-2-3-1 system at Leeds on Saturday, but may revert back to his tried and tested 3-4-2-1 setup here.
- Kai Havertz has shown signs of promise in recent games but is still struggling to score so may drop to the bench here with Olivier Giroud preferred.
- Jose Gimenez returned to first team action following injury in the 0-0 draw with Getafe and is set to feature again here.
- Diego Simeone has elected to use a four-man defence of late and may continue that trend at Chelsea.
- That would see Marcos Llorente and Saul Niguez feature ahead of Koke, though Thomas Lemar is a more attacking option if Simeone wishes to take the game to the Blues.
