Bayern Munich can win Group E on Tuesday night with a positive result against the Ukrainian suit Dynamo Kiev.
The German champions suffered a shock defeat against Augsburg on Friday night, which means that their lead at the top of the Bundesliga is now only one point. In the Champions League, they have won all four matches, scored 17 goals and conceded only two.
They have a number of injury problems and some players are missing due to isolation of the coronavirus and quarantine, so here is the page that Julian Nagelsmann can post in the middle of the week.

Manuel Neuer (GK) – At 35, the German is still one of the best goalkeepers in world football and is captain of Bayern.
Benjamin Pavard (RB) – Pavard can play central and wide, but plays mainly on the right back. Gets its fair share of criticism but can be a threat in attacking positions.
Tanguy Nianzou (CB) – Dayot Upamecano is suspended and Niklas Sule isolates himself, so the teenager Nianzou can be given a chance in the central defense. Has not started a club game since the 5-2 victory over Benfica in early November.
Lucas Hernandez (CB) – Without the aforementioned duo, Hernandez will be a senior defender along with Nianzou.
Alphonse Davies (LB) – Came from the bench in the defeat against Augsburg but should replace Omar Richards in the starting eleven.

Marcel Sabitzer (CM) – Gets a little bang but Nagelsmann hopes he is fit enough to start with Joshua Kimmich still in quarantine. Received criticism for his performance in Augsburg.
Leon Goretzka (CM) – A goal threat from central midfield, Goretzka has scored two goals in the Bundesliga this season. Still looking for his first in the Champions League this semester.
Thomas Muller (AM) – Bits Bavarian attacks and often comes at the end of them. Has nine assists in the Bundesliga already this campaign.

Corentin Tolisso (RW) – With Serge Gnabry missing and Kingsley Coman a doubt, Tolisso could get a rare chance to start in an attacking position for Bayern. Has started once in the Bundesliga and made a brief substitution in the Champions League this season.
Robert Lewandowski (ST) – Yes, this guy is pretty good. Already has eight goals in Europe this season with 14 in the league.
Leroy Sane (LW) – Has had a quick start to his second season with Bayern. Already has four goals and four assists in the Champions League and netted twice in Germany’s 9-0 victory over Liechtenstein during the international break.
