On Tuesday night German treble winners Bayern Munich will face English giants Manchester City in a match, which will decide the winner of Group D of the Champions League.

With both teams already qualified, there will definitely be some changes in the starting line-ups, but let's see what they could be.

Team news

Bayern Munich:

Manager Pep Guardiola will be able to use striker Claudio Pizzaro and winger Xhedran Shaqiri, who both return from injuries.

Philipp Lahm is said to be available for Tuesday's clash, but most probably won't be risked be Pep.

The Bavarians' only missing player will be Holland winger Arjen Robben.

Manchester City:

The Sky Blues manager Manuel Pellegrini has stated that the weekend's game against Arsenal is much more important than the game with Bayern, which suggests he will make changes to his starting line-up.

The first will definitely be at the goalkeeper position, where Joe Hart will replace Costel Pantilimon.

David Silva will probably sit on the bench, after just recovering from injury and still not fully fit.

Yaya Toure is out due to yellow card accumulation.

Possible line-ups:

Bayern Munich: Neuer, Rafinha-Boateng-Dante-Alaba, Martinez, Müller-Thiago-Kroos-Ribery, Pizzaro.

Manchester City: Hart, Richards-Nastasic-Lescott-Kolarov, Milner-Fernandinho-Garcia-Nasri, Dzeko-Aguero.
