Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes rested several starters over the weekend and it didn't seem to slow them down much in their 9-2 win over Hamburg. It's also preferable to be able to rest stars and still get a massive momentum building victory when you're heading into a Champions League week.
Three Juventus players; Stephan Lichtsteiner, Arturo Vidal and Claudio Marchisio, would all miss the second leg if they pick up a yellow card in today's match. Bayern's Dante and Philipp Lahm are in the same danger.
Bayern Munich injuries and suspensions
Out: Javi Martinez (suspended), Holger Badstuber (knee).
Juventus injuries and suspensions
In Doubt: Sebastian Giovinco (ankle), Mirko Vucinic (illness).
Mirko Vucinic should be available after missing the Derby d'Italia due to a fever. Giovinco's status is in doubt thanks to victime of a rough tackle that earned Esteban Cambiasso a red card. Javi Martinez is serving a suspension so Luiz Gustavo is expected to start in his place.
