We are into the first week of the month of December in 2016, and it’s time for yet another round of UEFA Champions League football. This week we have a heavyweight match lined up with between German giants Bayern Munich and Spanish club Atletico Madrid. And as we build up to the Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League 2016-17 encounter we bring forward the live streaming details and TV guide alongside the match preview, team news and match prediction.
Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid: Match Preview
Bayern Munich have always been a team to beat in the UEFA Champions League. And it is no exception this time round as well. It’s true that they have faced a bit of tumultuous time recently with only 2 wins in their last 5 matches across all the tournaments, but it will be utterly foolish to write them off in this upcoming UEFA Champions League 2016-17 encounter against Atletico Madrid.
On the other hand, Atletico Madrid have been one of the biggest surprises in the recent past with the brand of football they displayed. However, there has been a lack of consistency that can be noticed in the performances of the Spanish club in this year. In the Spanish La Liga, which is the topmost competition in Spain they are currently positioned at the fourth spot, adrift of the league leaders Real Madrid by as many as 9 points. But they are in a red hot form as far as the UEFA Champions League 2016-17 is concerned as they are yet to drop one point in all the matches they have played so far in this tournament.
So the upcoming Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich encounter is definitely going to be a mouthwatering encounter keeping in mind the firepower that both teams have at their disposal. Bayern Munich will be looking forward to taking revenge for the 1-0 defeat they suffered in the first leg encounter that took place at the Vicente Calderon Stadium in Spain. Also, Bayern will look to get back to winning ways after their shock 3-2 defeat against the Russian team FC Rostov.
Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich: Team News
The news has come on from the Atletico camp that Diego Simeone is going to rest some of his regular first team players in the match against Bayern Munich. And the list includes both Thiago and Filipe Luis. However, Fernando Torres is expected to be making a comeback having missed the last three matches for Atletico. Also, Cerci and Fernandez will miss out the action due to knee injuries.
Coming to the team news from the home team, it can be said that Bayern Munich will be looking forward to fielding the strongest possible eleven. The only man who is going to miss out is Kingsley Coman who will perhaps miss a long part of the season due to a knee injury.
Bayern Munich (probable line-up): (4-3-3) Neuer, Kimmich, Hummels, Martinez, Alaba, Alonso, Lahm, Thiago, Ribery, Robben, Lewandowski
Atletico Madrid (probable line-up): (4-4-2) Oblak, Juanfran, Hernandez, Godin, Gimenez, Gabi, Niguez, Koke, Carrasco, Griezmann, Torres
Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich: Match Prediction
The match between Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid is definitely going to be the biggest of all the matches that are scheduled on Tuesday night, and we can expect some exhilarating display of football from both sides. The home side will be well supported by the home crowd which might just make things difficult for Diego Simeone’s side in this UEFA Champions League encounter. But one thing can be said that Atletico Madrid will be up against this challenge quite well. And hence we predict a 2-2 draw as the final result of the match with Lewandowski and Robben scoring for the home side and Torres and Carrasco scoring for the visitors.
