PLAYERS: Franck Ribery
Winger Franck Ribery will look to punish the club where he was formed as a youth player when Bayern Munich travels to struggling Lille on Tuesday. Ribery, who was on Lille's books from 1995-99 before being released, has been in fine form recently, creating three goals in Bayern's 5-0 win away to Fortuna Duesseldorf on Saturday, and setting up Olivier Giroud's equalizer for France against Spain last week. Saturday's win made Bayern the first side to start a Bundesliga campaign with eight wins, but the Champions League runner-up is under pressure in Europe after its surprise 3-1 loss away to Bate Borisov three weeks ago. The Belarus side has six points and will take a major step toward qualifying from Group F if it beats Valencia at home.
