A win for Bayern Munich would seal their spot in the Champions League Round of 16.

Bayern Munich travel to Doosan Arena in Czech Republic to take on Viktoria Plzen in a bid to secure three more points and, potentially, the top spot in Group C of the UEFA Champions League.

Julian Nagelsmann has faced a lot of criticism from the press due to Bayern's uncharacteristically mediocre start to the Bundesliga, where they have accumulated just 16 points from 9 games, sitting four points off the top in third place.

However, they have maintained a perfect record in the Champions League, winning their first three games in the group and defeating Barcelona and Inter. A win tonight will take their points tally to 12, which guarantees a passage to the Round of 16.
