styrofoam or fiberglass

Good morning all. I'm going to insulate the wall next to my bath tub and wondering, from a moisture/mold standpoint, if it is better to use styrofoam boards or fiberglass batts with plastic sheeting? The insulation will be covered with cement board and tile. Also, if I use fiberglass should it be faced or unfaced in this case? Thanks for any input and/or other suggestions.
