Due to the coronavirus, Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller will miss this match. Lucas Hernandez, Kingsley Coman, and Bouna Sarr have already been injured.
The UEFA Champions League group stage draw made it clear that Plzen is an absolute outsider in a group with Barcelona, Inter, and Bayern. Every point gained by the Czech team will be a great accomplishment.
They were defeated in the first two rounds by Barcelona and Inter. The Plzen players were defeated by a score of 1-5 in the first round in Catalonia’s capital, while the Nerazzurri defeated them by a score of 0-2 at their stadium in the second round.
They travel to Munich without any expectations, knowing that their opponents are overwhelming favorites in this match. They’ll enter the game completely relieved, and we’ll see if such an approach yields a positive result.
Pavel Bucha is suspended for this match after receiving a red card against Inter. All of the other players are fit and available to coach Michal Bilek.
These two teams last met in the 2013/14 season, in the group stage of the same competition. The Bavarians were dominant at home 5-0, while the visitors won 1-0.
