Bayern Munich will look to recover from the disappointment of failing to secure the Bundesliga title on Saturday when they host Atletico Madrid in the decisive second leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola’s men seek to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg at the Vicente Calderon stadium last week.

Franck Ribery faces a late fitness test on a back problem otherwise there are no fresh injury concerns as Bayern look to reach the final of the competition for a first time since winning it in 2013.

Atletico Madrid meanwhile are hunting a second final appearance in Europe’s top club competition in three seasons.

The 2014 losing finalists – coached by Diego Simeone – are in fine form at the moment are enjoying a run of six matches without conceding a goal.

A further boost to the confidence comes in the form of Diego Godin and Yannick Carrasco who have recovered from a hamstring and ankle injury respectively.

Defender Jerome Boateng is also back in the fold following three months out with a groin injury
