Last Updated on 01/11/2022 by

Tuesday night’s Champions League Group B finale between Bayern Munich and Inter Milan, who are expected to finish first and second in the group, will take place at the Allianz Arena.

The home team has won each of its five games to take first place in the division with 15 points, followed by Inter in second place with 10 points, and Barcelona in third place after finishing in a difficult group.

Bayern’s performance in a challenging group has been extremely impressive; the German champions won all five of their games, scoring 16 goals while only giving up two, enabling them to easily advance as group winners to the Champions League’s knockout round.

Before claiming back-to-back victories over Viktoria Plzen and scoring nine goals in the process, Julian Nagelsmann’s team defeated Inter and Barcelona by a combined score of 2-0 in their first two games in the section.

Then, last week, Bayern performed admirably at Camp Nou, winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, and Benjamin Pavard. This kind of performance would have made any potential rivals in this competition sit up and take notice.

Der FCB lost to Villarreal in the last season’s quarterfinals, which surprised many people, but they did win the trophy in 2020 after defeating Paris Saint-Germain in the championship game.

Nagelsmann’s team comes into this game off a 6-2 victory over Mainz in the Bundesliga on Saturday, which propelled them to the top of the standings with 25 points after their first 12 games.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Edin Dzeko (twice), and Romelu Lukaku scored for Inter, who beat Viktoria Plzen 4-0 last week to secure their place in the Champions League’s last-16 round.

The Italian powerhouses lost 2-0 to Bayern in their group opening game on September 7, but they have since won three of their last four matches. A crucial result came on October 12 when they drew 3-3 at Barcelona, which meant they only needed to defeat Viktoria Plzen at home to finish second.

Since being eliminated by Schalke 04 in the last eight of the European Cup in 2010–11, Inter has not advanced past the first knockout round. They reached the round of 16 last season but fell to Liverpool.

I Nerazzurri have three times won the Champions League, with their most recent triumph occurring in 2010. A victory over Bayern on Tuesday would undoubtedly make a statement.

After defeating Sampdoria 3-0 on Saturday in league play, Simone Inzaghi’s team will enter the game in fifth place overall with 24 points, eight points behind Napoli at the top of the standings.

Bayern Team News

Bayern will once more be without Sarr, Hernandez, Neuer, Sane, and Muller for Tuesday’s Champions League match against Inter due to injury. Due to the injury he sustained against Mainz on Saturday in league play, Matthijs de Ligt is also anticipated to miss out, which could allow Benjamin Pavard to play in the middle of the defence.

Nagelsmann is likely to resist the urge to make many changes for this game, but he could start Sabitzer and Coman. Choupo-Moting, who increased his season total to seven goals with a late goal against Mainz on Saturday, is expected to lead the team once more.

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Ulreich; Mazraoui, Upamecano, Pavard, Davies; Sabitzer, Goretzka; Coman, Musiala, Sadio Mane; Choupo-Moting

Inter Team News

Romelu Lukaku won’t be available for selection due to a thigh issue, and Inter will be without Dalbert, Marcelo Brozovic, and Gabriel Brazao due to injuries. On Saturday, Lukaku made another appearance off the bench, but the Belgian international has since sustained another injury, so Dzeko will likely start alongside Lautaro Martinez in the attack.

Coach Inzaghi might start Asllani and Acerbi while benching Alessandro Bastoni and Hakan Calhanoglu if given the chance.

Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Onana; Skriniar, De Vrij, Acerbi; Dumfries, Barella, Asllani, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Edin Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez
