Bayern Munich Predicted XI v Shaktar Donetsk: Ribéry A Doubt But Alonso Could Make Return

Posted by

Champions League returns on Tuesday night. 

Bayern Munich face Shaktar Donetsk in the final 16 of the Champions League, and after their 8-0 demolishing of sorry Hamburg over the weekend, the Ukrainian outfit could not have picked a worse time to face the Bundesliga giants with their confidence flying-high.

Here’s how we think Guardiola’s side will line-up tonight:

GK – Manuel Neuer

Surely the first name on the Pep Guardiola’s starting XI – the German stopper has been outstanding between the posts.

Manuel Neuer

RB – Rafinha

The defender is struggling with a slight knock, but is likely to make the clash to boost the defence and the attack on the wing.

CB – Mehdi Benatia

Benatia so often makes the job in defence look easy, but will need to be on top-form against Shaktar striker Luiz Adriano, who already has nine goals in the competition.

CB – Jerome Boateng

A flop at Manchester City, the German has become a pivotal figure at the heart of the defence in one of the most successful and exciting teams in Europe.

LB – Juan Bernat

The 21-year-old has adapted to life with the Bundesliga giants expertly in his first season with the club. His quick-feet will cause problems for the Shaktar defence on the flank.
