Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane train with Bayern Munich ahead Champions League clash with Lokomotiv Moscow – in pictures

Reigning European champions are seven points clear at the top of Group A

Reigning champions Bayern Munich complete their Champions League group stage fixtures this week with their place in the knockout stages already safely secured.

Hansi Flick's side – with top spot in Group A in the bag having secured 13 points from a possible 15 – face Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow in Germany on Wednesday.

The Bundesliga champions were held 1-1 by Atletico Madrid in Spain in their last match which brought to an end the Germans remarkable 15-game European winning run.

That result was achieved despite Flick resting the likes of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, midfielder Leon Goretzka and striker Robert Lewandowski – while also leaving the likes of Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller on the bench and only brining them on for the last half-hour.

Atletico – second with six points – must avoid defeat in their final group game at RB Salzburg to ensure qualification. The Austrians beat Lokomotiv 3-1 in the Russian capital in their last match to leave Marko Nikolic's team bottom of the group.

At the weekend, Bayern were involved in a thrilling 3-3 draw with RB Leipzig in their top-of-the-table Bundesliga clash in Munich. Muller scored twice and Kingsley Coman secured a hat-trick of assists as Bayern kept a hold of their top spot.

In the Russian Premier League, Lokomotiv ran out 3-1 winners at home to Rubin Kazan on Saturday, with Vladislav Ignatyev's two goals sandwiching a Anton Miranchuk strike for Moscow.
