Luiz Gustavo has replaced the suspended Javi Martinez in the Bayern Munich starting lineup for this evening's Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie against Juventus.

He will partner Bastian Schweinsteiger in the holding midfield role, while Franck Ribery, Thomas Muller and Toni Kroos are all included.

Meanwhile, visiting Juve are without Mirko Vucinic, who has only been deemed fit enough for a place on the bench following a virus. His absence has handed an opportunity to Alessandro Matri up front.

Bayern: Neuer; Alaba, Dante, Van Buyten, Lahm; Luiz Gustavo, Schweinsteiger; Ribery, Muller, Kroos; Mandzukic

Juventus: Buffon; Chiellini, Barzagli, Bonucci; Lichtsteiner, Peluso, Marchisio, Pirlo, Vidal; Quagliarella, Matri

Thomas Muller
