Bayern Munich (2) v Marseille (0) Champions League quarter-final second leg

Bayern Munich have no major injury concerns, however captain Bastian Schweinsteiger is suspended for the tie.
Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda returns after suspension but centre back Souleymane Diawara, who was banned for the first leg, is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury. Midfielder Alou Diarra is also suspended for the trip to Germany. Andre Ayew will once again play through the pain barrier as he is postponing surgery on his shoulder complaint until the end of the season.

Marseille go into this game knowing they need to score at least two goals in the Allianz Arena to have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League semi-final, with Real Madrid the most likely opponents.

Bayern captain Bastian Schweinsteiger says his club are hungry for success, and will not be complacent following their 2-0 first-leg win in France.

“At the moment, there’s total desire in the team. We have to make the most of our good position in the Champions League on Tuesday thanks to victory in Marseille.”
Likely line-ups

Bayern Munich: Neuer, Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba, Luiz Gustavo, Kroos, Robben, Muller, Ribery, Gomez
Marseille: Mandanda, Azpilicueta, Fanni, N’Koulou, Morel, Cheyrou, M’Bia, Amalfitano
Valbuena, Remy, Ayew
