Bayern are still without number one goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, while winger Kingsley Coman is another long-term absentee.

Sevilla come into the match off the back of a hugely disappointing 4-0 away defeat against Celta Vigo, with the Spanish side having named a strong side, as opposed to have rested their big names in preparation for their trip to Germany. The visitors will be without Danish international defender Simon Kjaer and Sebastien Corchia, with the likes of Clement Lenglet and Jesus Navas potentially filling in as a result of their absence.

Perhaps surprisingly, the meeting in Spain last week was the first ever competitive match between the two sides, meaning that few conclusions can be made when it comes to their head-to-head record.
