Munich (dpa) - FC Bayern Munich is aiming for an early round of 16 in the Champions League this evening (9 p.m. / Sky).
If they win against RB Salzburg, Munich are definitely qualified for the knockout round.
Even a draw could be enough if Lokomotiv Moscow doesn't win at Atlético Madrid at the same time.
But the German record champions are aiming for their own victory in order to expand their record series to 15 successes in a row.
«Salzburg are very uncomfortable opponents and they know how to put the opponent under pressure.
The team is able to be competitive in the Champions League, ”said coach Hansi Flick.
Apart from the longer injured Joshua Kimmich and Alphonso Davies, Bouna Sarr and Corentin Tolisso are missing due to muscular problems.
Niklas Süle is said to be working on his form due to a lack of training.
In the first leg, Munich won 6-2.
