Marseille Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

Marseille are without Steve Mandanda in goal and they're in pretty terrible form at the moment. All signs point to them struggling to deal with Bayern Munich. Bayern's defense is hardly spectacular, however, and the home side has plenty going forward. It seems highly unlikely that they're going to be able to prevent the Bavarians from getting an away goal, but a win will keep things interesting. They have a shot at that, with Loic Remy surprisingly in the starting lineup after recovering from an injury. Bayern Munich field their new standard-issue lineup with Rafinha out for bad form and Bastian Schweinsteiger out for yet another injury issue.

Marseille Lineup (4-2-3-1): Andrade; Fanni, Nkoulou, Morel, Azpilicueta; Diarra, Mbia; A. Ayew, Valbuena, Amalfitano; Remy

Bayern Munich Lineup (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Alaba, Badstuber, Boateng, Lahm; Luiz Gustavo, Kroos; Robben, Müller, Ribery; Gomez

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET, 8:45 p.m. local time from Stade Velodrome in Marseille. You can find the game on FOX Soccer Plus in the USA, Sportsnet regionals in Canada and Sky Sports 2 in the UK.
