The visitors have been struck down by various injury problems in recent weeks, which means a somewhat weaker bench on the face of it, although Guardiola can still call upon Thiago Alcantara and the experienced Claudio Pizarro should he wish.
As far as Bayer are concerned, Roger Schmidt has opted to make two changes by bringing Roberto Hilbert and Emir Spahic into the starting lineup. Tin Jedvaj and Kyriakos Papadopoulos are the men to make way for an in-form Leverkusen side.
Bayer Leverkusen: Leno; Hilbert, Toprak, Spahic, Wendell; Bender, Rolfes; Bellarabi, Castro, Brandt; Kiessling
Subs: Reinartz, Drmic, Calhanoglu, Papadopoulos, Jedvaj, Kresic, Donati
Bayern Munich XI: Neuer; Benatia, Boateng, Dante; Rafinha, Lahm, Alonso, Gotze, Bernat; Muller, Lewandowski
Subs: Thiago, Pizarro, Guadino, Rode, Reina, Badstuber, Weiser
