Napoli Vs. Bayern Munich, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

If you were hoping for completely shocking formations and team selections in the UEFA Champions League match between Bayern Munich and Napoli, today is not your day. Walter Mazzarri and Jupp Heynckes have selected what are more or less their regular teams in their regular formations. Here are the lineups.

Napoli Lineup (3-4-2-1): Morgan de Sanctis; Salvatore Aronica, Hugo Campagnaro, Paulo Cannavaro; Juan Zuñiga, Walter Gargano, Gökhan Inler, Christian Maggio; Ezequiel Lavezzi, Marek Hamsik; Edinson Cavani    

Bayern Munich Lineup (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; Holger Badstuber, Daniel Van Buyten, Jerome Boateng, Phillip Lahm; Bastian Schweinsteiger, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk; Franck Ribery, Toni Kroos, Thomas Müller; Mario Gomez

One slight surprise is the inclusion of Tymoshchuk for Bayern. He's a very defensive-minded player who has great positioning and tackling ability. This selection is almost certainly a direct answer to Marek Hamsik.

This match kicks off at 2:45 pm ET, 8:45 pm local and can be seen on DirecTV Soccer and FoxSoccer.tv in the USA.
