Atletico Madrid vs. FC Bayern Munich Match Preview:

Perhaps, the most thrilling match of Wednesday in our Champions League predictions is a duel between old friends who ended up pretty fierce towards each other in the last year's Champions league campaign, when the teams met in one of the semifinals and after two legged games the ticket to the grand final was obtained by Diego Simeone's men followed by 2:2 on aggregate. This year the clubs were selected to play in group stages alongside with PSV and debuting Russian Rostov FC. So the first round brought them both three points thanks to defeating Rostov by Bayern Munich with the 5:0 score, while Atletico Madrid made that moderate, beating PSV to nil with the narrow 0:1 on the score sheet.

Kick-off: 19:45 CET, 28th of September, 2016.
Match status: EUROPE: Champions League - Group D - Round 2.
Venue: "Vicente Calderón Stadium" in Madrid, Spain.

Atletico Madrid: Team News

Not long ago The Mattressers managed to tie the match to 1:1 against Barcelona and one more time kept its goal clean in the home game against Deportivo La Coruna, having netted the only goal in the 70's minute by the top goalscorer of LaLiga Antoine Griezmann. Now they mean to repeat what was done precisely five months back in May. All the whole squad is available and being in good shape except for a few players as Augusto Fernández, Tiago, and Miguel Angel Moya, but they are not Simeone's first decisions in the starting lineup. So The Red-and-Whites trigger Bayern, having good reasons to earn the needed points.

FC Bayern Munich: Team News

The defeat over Hamburger SV extended the winning streak of The Bavarians that's been lasting 8 games. Mats Hummels has small chances to contribute for his team, however he will unlikely be seen in the starting lineup, so Jérôme Boateng and Javi Martínez will cover the centre-back spot. Holger Badstuber has been out for long and certainly out for this game too. Basically those are main issues the team faces now, and it is not crucial at all.

Possible starting lineups of the teams:

Atletico Madrid: Jan Oblak - Diego Godín, Filipe Luís, Stefan Savić, Juanfran - Koke, Saúl Ñíguez, Gabi (c) - Antoine Griezmann, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, Kévin Gameiro (4-3-3 formation)

FC Bayern Munich: Manuel Neuer - Javi Martínez, Jérôme Boateng, Philipp Lahm (c), David Alaba - Thiago Alcantara, Xabi Alonso, Arturo Vidal - Franck Ribéry, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller (4-3-3 formation)

Missing players of Atletico Madrid and FC Bayern Munich:

Atletico Madrid: Augusto Fernández (Knee Injury), Tiago (Muscle Injury), Miguel Angel Moya (Knee Injury).

FC Bayern Munich: Holger Badstuber (Muscle Injury), Mats Hummels (Convalescence after a knee injury - doubtful).

Atletico Madrid vs. FC Bayern Munich: Match Preview

Atletico Madrid has not conceded in five of six last home fixtures since the Bayern Munich arrival to Madrid, though. Particularly should be noted the fact that Bayern as well never handled The Mattressers' goal so far at the "Vicente Calderón Stadium". Thus, one wondering question appears: "Will Bayern be able to score a single one at this time?". Indeed we are pretty sure about one thing - Diego Simeone never tolerates his team goal to be netted much.
