The staff forBayern Munich vs Olympiakos Piraeus
Bayern Munich remain without very good defenders Süle and Hernandez and substitute striker Arp. Despite his 14th performance of the season on Saturday, Robert Lewandowski could not avoid the defeat of his team.
Opposite, the Olympiakos must always compose without its important defenders Koutris and Cissé and the long-term wounded Fortounis and Christodoulopoulos. With four goals, former Caen El-Arabi is the top scorer of his team with Algerian Soudani, but he is not on the list of players who can evolve in C1. Embarrassed by physical problems in recent weeks, the former Marseillais Valbuena should not begin.
