Bayern Munich vs. FC Copenhagen preview: Team news and predicted lineups

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

Here is our preview of Wednesday's Champions League group stage clash between Bayern Munich and FC Copenhagen, including predicted lineups.
With four wins from four in the Champions League group stage, Bayern Munich have already qualified for the knockout stages ahead of Wednesday's home clash with Danish champions FC Copenhagen.

With that in mind, Thomas Tuchel is expected to rotate his side for the game, but it's unclear to what extent, with the Bayern coach aware of the dangers of making too many changes.

"It's possible," Tuchel said at a press conference on Tuesday on the possibility of rotating his team.

"It's still a Champions League game, we're on a good run and we don't want to interrupt that, we had a long break from Friday to Wednesday.

"We're already top of the group, but we don't want to signal that it's less important to us. If we make changes, it's just to keep the hunger high. We haven't decided how much we'll rotate," said the Bayern coach.

Alphonso Davies and Thomas Müller, who watched Friday's 1-0 win over FC Köln from the bench, are expected to come into the side, with Serge Gnabry and Mathys Tel also pushing for a chance.

Jamal Musiala and Matthijs de Ligt remain unavailable for selection, Tuchel confirmed at his pre-match press conference.

Copenhagen, who are coming off a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Viborg, will be without Meling, Khocholava and Clem.

Bayern won the reverse fixture against the Danish champions 2-1 after coming back from a goal down.
