Current form: Bayern vs Benfica

Normally dominant in the Bundesliga, where they have comfortably been cruising along for the past few seasons, Bayern have struggled so far to stay ahead of the competition. Die Roten come into this match having dropped more points in a surprise 3-3 draw with Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend, which comes on the heels of a 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker just before the international break.

That means that Niko Kovac's men have failed to win their last three Bundesliga games, and the reigning Bundesliga champions currently sit in fifth spot, nine points behind league leaders Dortmund. Although there are still plenty of round to go, it is increasingly looking quite likely that Bayern's stranglehold on the Bundesliga title could have finally come to an end. However, in the Champions League, the Bavarian titans have been solid enough and will hope to rebound after some disappointing league results when they welcome Benfica to the Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening.

As for Benfica, they sit in fourth spot in the Primeira Liga and come into this game four points behind league leaders Porto. The visitors ended a two-game losing streak over the weekend by beating Tondela on the road, which ended a run of four games without a win, and will hope that Bayern's indifferent form could give them a chance to put themselves back in contention for a top two spot in Group E.

Current position: Bayern vs Benfica

Bayern currently sit on top of their quartet thanks to three wins and a draw. Die Roten are still unbeaten so far, and are looking good to seal a round of 16 spot should they beat Benfica at the Allianz Arena. In fact, even a draw would suffice for Bayern, but naturally, they will be hoping for a victory to appease their supporters, especially after the team's bad showing last weekend.  However, the visitors are not out of the running just yet, and despite their poor record against German sides, they will still have hopes of springing an upset.
