Liverpool looks for a first leg advantage despite the absence of its suspended all-world defender Virgil van Dijk as well as injured Joe Gomez and unlikely-to-feature Joe Gomez.

The collective injuries could be a bridge-too-far even with the backing of Anfield, as Bayern is capable of bagging goals by the bunch.

Bayern is without Thomas Muller to a suspension, and also is waiting on the fitness of Leon Goretzka.

In the other match, tricky Lyon will look to score a notable upset of Barcelona.

Nabil Fekir, Memphis Depay, and Moussa Dembele are amongst the many weapons Lyon will need beginning at 3 p.m. ET with the first leg in France.
