When & Where?
Date: Wednesday 31 July
Time: 19:30 (BST)
Venue: Allianz Arena
With such a short space between matches, both team manager will almost certainly rotate their starting lineup.
For Spurs, Serge Aurier, Victor Wanyama, Eric Dier and Ben Davies are among the notable absentees. Despite playing for 66 minutes, Harry Kane and former Bundesliga player Heung-min Son should play some part in finals. We can also expect Dele Alli and Lucas Moura pushing for a start.
Hugo Lloris is expected to begin after recovering from illness.
As for Bayern Munich, Lucas Hernandez remains sidelined, as he continues his recovery from knee surgery. While Thomas Muller – hat-trick hero should replace Serge Gnabry, who lasted only 20 minutes against Fenerbahce which saw him leave the field with the thigh strain.
Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka are unlikely to feature in the tunnel after playing for the full 90 minutes on Tuesday, so it stands to reason that they might drop to the bench.
