This riveting encounter in Group A of the Champions League 2020-21 is going to be contested in only one manner. Where Spanish side Atletico Madrid will look to utilise their worldclass defence to make life tiresome for Bayern Munich, the Germans will on the other hand come hard with their wordclass repertoire of attacking names.
With these two outright favourites to emerge into the next round from the group, today’s battle will be a determining moment in battle for top spot in Group A. And its bound to be contested in extremely hot and feisty manner as well with these two sides set to leave no stone unturned to pull off their opening three points of the league.
For reigning champions Bayern Munich, a win is all the more important as they look to lay down an early statement of intent for their title defence. Champions last time around after defeating PSG 1-0 in the final, the Germans are considered stern and stiff challengers this time around as well.

The worldclass Jan Oblak has somehow only managed to display a new facet to his game every season. He’s moved from strength to strength, a shot stopper who is considered by many as the most well endowed and pristine goal-keeper in the world at the moment.
Letting in a measly single goal in four clashes, a period which has seen the Spanish club emerge with three cleansheets, Atletico Madrid have as ever been intricate and well disciplined in defence. The side has given cold feet to the best of defences and with them set to do the same to Bayern Munich today, we have fullback Renan Lodi being inducted in our side.
Bayern Munich on the other hand see us venture in with both of their fullbacks. Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez implored us for their selections owing to their ability to earnestly make their presence felt in attack.
For all the sense of resolve and perseverance surrounding Atletico Madrid’s defence, if there’s one side in the fraternity which can pile on the goals against this team, its Bayern Munich. They have already scored on 17 occasions in the Bundesliga, a team set to dish out the same gameplan for this contest as well.
Guiding the side’s attacking play will be Cristian Tolisso. Leon Goretzka is more than capable of coming up with a peach of a shot as well to see him link up with Serge.
Wrapping up the trio from the side is Kingsley Coman who is set to get an outing today while Koke’s ability to control play in midfield and break up play see him be our pick from the visiting team.
Last season’s top scorer, Robert Lewandowksi will be eyeing the coveted prize yet again. He’s taken no time to hit the ground running in the Bundesliga with 7 goals already to make him a must have pick for us.
Thomas Muller assists him for the tie while the three goals and one assist for striker Luis Suarez at his new club see us make him our lone pick from the club.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Robert has three assists to go along with his 7 goals to see him be our captain while Luis is the vice-captain.
Oblak, Lucas, Pavard, Lodi, Koke, Tolisso, Leon, Coman, Luis, Robert, Muller
