Bayern Munich host Villarreal in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final, with Unai Emery’s side leading 1-0 from the first leg.

Bayern Munich and Villarreal are both eyeing a spot in the semi-final of the Champions League and will be looking for a win on Tuesday at the Allianz Arena.

Villarreal beat Bayern 1-0 last week, and Unai Emery has opted to stick with the same team in hopes that they can pull off a similar feat in the second leg too.

Meanwhile, Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann has opted for an attacking line-up, picking Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane as his wing-backs, while Serge Gnabry drops to the bench.

Bayern have turned around situations like these before, having beaten RB Salzburg 8-2 on aggregate in the last round after drawing 1-1 in the first leg.

Bayern Munich: Neuer, Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Sane, Kimmich, Goretzka, Coman, Musiala, Muller, Lewandowski.
