sport news Bayern Munich have won their last 15 Champions League games... so how can ...

Tuesday night's Champions League fixture list is headlined by a mouthwatering tie between two of European football's heavyweights.

Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid are two sides used to seeing the latter stages of the competition, but while the former are firing on all cylinders this season, Atletico are in need of some more points to secure their spot in the knockout rounds.

As it stands, Diego Simeone's side are second but a defeat against an all-star Bayern could leave them third behind Lokomotiv Moscow heading into the final matchday if results don't go their way.

So just how do you stop Hansi Flick's juggernaut, with the team having won each of their last FIFTEEN matches in the Champions League? Here, Sportsmail takes a look at what Simone needs to do to take all three points...

Make the most of Robert Lewandowski's absence

There is no better time to face Bayern than now, with Hansi Flick opting to rest a whole host of his big names having already secured their place in the knockout stages as group winners.

Lewandowski has scored 12 in eight Bundesliga games, and three Champions League goals on top of that, but he's been left at home, giving Atletico a dream opportunity to secure a result.

With their star man off the pitch, there will be no focal point for the team as there usually is, and Bayern won't be able to rely on his *many* goals. 

On top of that, there's no Manuel Neuer, Leon Goretzka and Corentin Tolisso, while Alphonso Davies and Joshua Kimmich will also not be present in Madrid. That, in itself, is a present for Madrid.

Take advantage of Bayern's defence

Interestingly, Bayern Munich have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last seven games. In the Champions League in recent weeks, they've let in goals home and away against Salzburg and also Lokomotiv Moscow. 

So, despite their incredible attacking threat, there are holes at the back and if Atletico can exploit them then they may just have a chance of getting a result.

On top of that, as previously mentioned, there will be some big names absent on Tuesday night, with a change in goal and in a number of the defensive positions. 

Alexander Nubel is set to make his first European appearance in the game, while no Davies and Kimmich also mean there will be other changes to the back-line.

Niklas Sule and David Alaba are the likely centre backs,
