Angel Di Maria and Layvin Kurzawa are suspended for the champions, which will mean wither Draxler or Pablo Sarabia taking the Argentine's sport, while Mitchell Bakker will come in at left-back.

Marco Verratti, Mauro Icardi, Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer, and Leandro Paredes are all out, with Idrissa Gueye also set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury against Man Utd.
