Bayern will be keen to bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in their most recent Champions League outing. The Bundesliga side were held to a 2-2 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend, so their preperation hasn’t been ideal.
PSV are yet to win in Europe’s elite competition this term, taking one point from a possible six available so far. Their league form has been poor to say the least, with just two wins from the last six, while the Dutch giants have failed to win their last three competitive outings.
They face a tough task to return to winning ways, with Bayern favourites to secure all three points here.
Bayern Munich – Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels could start at centre-back against PSV, though Javi Martinez is hoping to keep his place in the starting XI.
Franck Ribery is the club’s only injury concern for the welcome of PSV.
Arjen Robben is pushing for a start after netting early on against Eintracht Frankfurt, though could miss out on a place in the XI.
PSV Eindhoven – Jorrit Hendrix misses out for PSV here, with Bart Ramselaar in line to deputise in the middle of the park.
Jurgen Locadia and Luuk Koopmans join Hendrix on the sidelines.
PSV could line up in a familiar 4-3-3 formation having opted against the system in the Champions League so far.
