Bayern Munich

This year, Bayern Munich began their UCL campaign with an emphatic three-nil win over Barcelona at the Nou Camp last week. They will now look to continue their dominance in the group when they welcome Dynamo to Germany.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side are going into this tie fresh from an emphatic 3-1 win over Greuther Fürth at the weekend. They are unbeaten in twelve competitive games and have won their last eight games.

At home in the Champions League, they have now won 32 of their last 34 UCL group stage matches (D1, L1). They’ve also beaten visitors Dynamo Kyiv in all four previous home UCL games and will look to make this a fifth straight win.

The home team will be without Kingsley Coman and Sven Ulreich, who are yet to reach full fitness. Corentin Tolisso is also another injury doubt, as he is carrying a knock. 

Possible Bayern Munich starting line-ups

Manuel Neuer; Alphonso Davies, Lucas Hernandez, Dayot Upamecano, Benjamin Pavard; Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka; Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry; Robert Lewandowski.

Dynamo Kyiv

Dynamo Kyiv will travel to Germany looking to get their UCL campaign up and running after recording a nil-nil draw in their last game with Benfica.

But they face the group’s favourites and perhaps the most brutal opponent they will meet in this group.

However, their form heading into this tie is strong. They have kept six clean sheets in their last seven competitive fixtures and have only lost once in the eight games.

Although this tie looks impossible, they will take confidence in their head-to-head record with Bayern that reads: W4, D1, L5.

Meanwhile, Mircea Lucescu has several injury cases on his hands and will be without Artem Besedin, Ibrahim Kargbo, Vladyslav Kulach, and Denys Popov for this tie. Eric Ramirez is still in quarantine and remains a doubt ahead of this match.

Possible Dynamo Kyiv starting line-ups

Denys Boyko; Vitalii Mykolenko, Oleksandr Syrota, Illia Zabarnyi, Tomasz Kedziora; Serhiy Sydorchuk, Mykola Shaparenko, Viktor Tsyganko, Carlos de Pena; Vitaliy Buyalskiy, Ilia Shkurin.


Bayern Munich are in top shape this season and should easily win this game.
