Bayern Munich vs. Manchester United: Team news and predictions
Bayern Munich will face Manchester United at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night in what promises to be a tense match. The club is coming off a 2-2 tie with rival Bayern Leverkusen over the weekend and will be hoping for a win to boost their confidence even more.
Manchester United will have a much stiffer opponent in Bayern Munich when they compete in the Champions League for the third season in a row. United have won just two of their first five games, struggling against Wolves, coming from behind to overcome Nottingham, and losing to Tottenham, Arsenal, and Brighton.
Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer is still out. Raphael Guerreiro returned to full training this week following a muscular issue, but he is too young to play on Wednesday. Kingsley Coman, who missed the game against Leverkusen due to muscle difficulties, will rejoin the team.
Manchester United’s team is still in desperate need of redemption, with Mount, Shaw, Wan Bissaka, Mainoo, Varane, Maguire, Varane, Diallo, Malacia, Heaton, Antony, Sancho, and new recruit Amrabat sidelined.
Head coach Thomas Tuchel was enraged by his team’s weekend draw, and this match may be all-or-nothing for them. They have the offensive force to break down and score against United’s defense.
The German tactician will not be on the field due to a one-game suspension.
Manchester United have struggled in front of goal and will face an underperforming defense against old rival Harry Kane, who joined Bayern Munich from Tottenham Hotspur in the offseason.
