Bayern Munich vs Manchester United Champions League Preview

Bayern Munich is all set to ignite the Champions League with an electrifying clash against Man Utd, and they’re undoubtedly the team to watch! With Erik ten Hag’s side struggling and under immense pressure, the odds are stacked in Bayern’s favor.

The Bavarian giants have been in terrific form this season, except for their minor setback – a 3-0 loss to RB Leipzig in the Super Cup. Since then, they’ve been on fire, clinching victory in three out of four games. A nail-biting last-minute penalty denied them a perfect Bundesliga record in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Bayer Leverkusen.

In the Champions League arena, Bayern Munich boasts an impressive record, securing eight wins in their last ten appearances. Their only nemesis? None other than European champions, Man City.

Bayern Munich vs Manchester United

Remember the iconic 1999 final when Manchester United triumphed over Bayern Munich? Well, that feels like ancient history as the current Man Utd squad pales in comparison to that legendary treble-winning team. The prevailing sentiment around the club is far from optimistic, especially after a disheartening 3-1 defeat by Brighton, where they were outclassed.

Defense is a major concern for Man Utd, and Onana in goal hasn’t been spared from criticism. Their recent Champions League form hasn’t been impressive either, with just one win in their last five outings.

Bayern Munich, on the other hand, enters this game with no fresh injury concerns. Manuel Neuer remains sidelined, making way for Sven Ulreich to guard the goal. However, they will miss the presence of manager Thomas Tuchel, who’s serving a touchline ban.

The visitors, Man Utd, won’t have Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia due to injuries, while Anthony and Jadon Sancho might be absent for personal reasons. Nevertheless, the potential return of Sofyan Amrabat, Mason Mount, and Raphael Varane could provide a much-needed boost, and Rasmus Hojlund might bring some excitement to the attack.

Here’s a remarkable stat: Bayern hasn’t tasted defeat in their last 34 UEFA Champions League group stage games, winning 31 and drawing 3. They’re also on a streak of 13 consecutive wins – both incredible records in the history of the competition!
