Confirmed XIs: Bayern vs Spurs

UEFA Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur will want to right the wrongs of their 7-2 mauling at the hands Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League at the Allianz Arena tonight. Here is how both sides will line-up.

Fully aware of the damage the defeat to Bayern caused the squad, new head coach Jose Mourinho didn’t want his players to relive the result or the performance.

The former Manchester United boss confirmed he watched the game 'a couple of times', but banned his squad from revisiting the nightmare result ahead of their clash in Munich.

With Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier all being rested, the two-time UEFA Champions League winner is set to give some of his fringe players a chance, in tonight’s encounter.

"We have an incredible number of fixtures until the new year and it's understandable that we're going to make a few changes, rest a few players and give opportunities to others," Mourinho added.

Confirmed line-ups:

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Pavard, Javi Martínez, Boateng, Davies; Kimmich, Thiago; Coman, Coutinho, Perisic; Gnabry.

Tottenham: Gazzaniga, Walker-Peters, Foyth, Alderweireld, Rose, Dier (C), Sissoko, Lo Celso, Eriksen, Sessegnon, Lucas.
