Anderlecht vs Bayern Munich
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 22nd November 2017
Kick-Off Time: 20:45 - Nigerian Time
Venue: Constant Vanden Stock Stadium (Anderlecht).
The Belgians are unarguably the worst side in this season’s UEFA Champions League and haven’t netted a goal this far.

On the other hand, they conceded 15 goals in the process.  Meanwhile, Bayern have 9 points in their bag and trail PSG by three points.

Their overall form leading into this game is simply superb having registered 8 wins on the bounce. The team had certainly found their mojo back under Jupp Heynckes and scored 20 goals in the process conceding just three.

TEAM NEWS:

Anderlecht - Manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck will be without right back Andy Najar due to injury. Forward Lukasz Teodorczyk is suspended in Belgium, but he will be free to play in this match.

Bayern Munich - Jupp Heynckes is without goalkeeper Manuel Neuer until March and winger Franck Ribery until next month. Center midfielder Thiago and winger Kingsley Coman are also dealing with injuries.


TEAM FORM:

Anderlecht have three wins, a draw, and a loss in their last five matches.

Bayern have four wins and a draw in their last five matches.

PREDICTED LINEUPS:

Anderlecht (3-5-2): Boeckx; Sa, Spajic, Deschacht; Bruno, Dendoncker, Kums, Trebel, Stanciu; Onyekuru, Teodorczyk .
RSC Anderlecht 3-5-2 football formation

Bayern (4-2-3-1): Ulreich; Kimmich, Hummels, Boateng, Alaba; Martinez, Vidal; Robben, James, Muller; Lewandowski
FC Bayern M√ľnchen 4-2-3-1 football formation

KEY STATS:
  • Overall, 11 meetings between the two sides and Bayern are way ahead with 6 wins and 2 draws as against Anderlecht’s 3 wins.
  • Anderlecht suffered a heavy 5-0 defeat when Bayern last visited them on 2008.
PREDICTION:

Anderlecht 0-3 - Bayern are heavy favourites for this game and there is little chance for the Belgians to end their horrible run here. So, the Germans are winning big tonight.
