Joshua Kimmich will be full of confidence after scoring the winner against Arsenal. The Germany international will start at right-back on Tuesday, and will need to be at his best once again.

Matthijs de Ligt's fitness will dictate who joins Eric Dier in the heart of the Bayern Munich defense on Tuesday evening. If the Dutch international is unable to recover in time, Kim Min-jae will likely come into the starting XI.

It will be interesting to see who starts at left-back, with Noussair Mazraoui having seemingly taken over from Alphonso Davies as the first-choice.

The injury situation will also dictate Thomas Tuchel's midfield plans, with Konrad Laimer also facing a race against time to be fit after being forced off at the weekend. Leon Goretzka has found his form in recent weeks and will likely keep his spot in the starting XI. Aleksandar Pavlović would be the obvious candidate to replace Laimer if he is unable to play from the start.
