The third day of the group stage of the Champions League offers a duel between Benfica and Bayern Munich at the top of Group E. At home, the Portuguese opt for a usual 3-4-3 with Odysseas Vlachodimos in the goals. Lucas Veríssimo, Nicolas Otamendi and Jan Verthongen form the defense while André Almeida and Alejandro Grimaldo occupy the roles of pistons. Julian Weigl and João Mário find themselves in the midfield. In front, Darwin Núñez, Roman Yaremchuk and Rafa Silva constitute the attacking trio.

For its part, Bayern Munich is articulated in 4-2-3-1 with Manuel Neuer as the last bulwark. In front of him, Benjamin Pavard, Niklas Süle, Dayot Upamecano and Lucas Hernández form the defense. Joshua Kimmich and Marcel Sabitzer constitute the double pivot. Alone at the top, Robert Lewandowski is supported by Kingsley Coman, Thomas Müller and Leroy Sané.
