Sport: De Ligt missed the first game due to knee problems and substitute Kim Min-jae has been blamed for both goals Bayern Munich conceded in the 2-2 draw.

Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel said at Tuesday’s press conference that Dier and De Ligt are set to start the return leg in Spain.

– They deserve to continue playing together. Matthijs has been given the green light, said Tuchel.

Musiala also missed the 3-1 loss to Stuttgart on Saturday due to a knee injury, but also took part in Tuesday’s training session, while Dier, who suffered a head injury against Stuttgart, completed the session with a bandage on his forehead.

However, Tuchel will have to do without Raphaël Guerreiro, who injured his foot against Stuttgart, and injured winger Kingsley Coman.

Bayern have not been to a Champions League final in five seasons. They then secured the trophy with a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the final. Real Madrid, on the other hand, have been in the Champions League final in five of the last ten seasons. The club won all five finals.
