Key Players to Watch
Wissam Ben Yedder
The talented forward has been the lone warrior for the home side as he has the tally of 8 goals this season in the Champions League, and is trailing by 4 goals against the score-board leader Cristiano Ronaldo.
Courtesy of two scintillating goals in the spare of 4 minutes against Manchester United in the second leg of the round of 16 tie, Ben Yedder single-handedly paved in the quarterfinal berth for the Spanish underdogs.
With sublime scoring confidence in his side, the French striker will hold a key role for the hosts to dismantle the mighty visitors.
Bayern Munich has a one man who mostly scores all their goals, and that’s Robert Lewandowski. He has been in the sublime scoring form in this season’s Champions League with 5 goals to his name.
Lewandowski scored 2 of the first leg’s 5 goals for the Germans in the round of 16 tie against Besiktas. With the astonishing quality of scoring goals with ease in the vital stages, the polish Striker will undoubtedly like to carry his applauding form in the hopes of lifting the UEFA Champions League trophy for the 6th time with his team.
A possible long-list of injuries daunts the home side. Midfielder Jesus Navas seems still to be recovering from the February’s calf injury and looks doubtful for the important quarterfinals tie.
Furthermore, Defender duo of Lionel Carole and Sebastien Corchia are still out of the action for the home side.
The German visitors have an injury headache of their own. The ace-midfielder Arturo Vidal has been sidelined for the game due to a late thigh injury.
