Bayern Munich brings might to UCL

Bayern Munich are looking to keep their momentum going in the Champions League, as they face Manchester United, who are struggling recently. In the Champions League, these two teams are actually not new, considering their power domestically. Bayern already had 39 appearances in the Champions League, which is one of the teams with the most appearances. Moreover, this is also Bayern‘s 15-straight appearances in the contest, and have won six titles in the contest. As for Man United, this is already their 32nd appearance in the Champions League. However, Man United last participated in the contest during the 2021-22 season, failing to qualify last season. Additionally, they were able to win three titles in the contest. This meeting will be on September 21, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8).

Bayern is coming into this game from a draw against Leverkusen in Bundesliga. Harry Kane’s 300th career club goal was cancelled out by Alex Grimaldo in the first half. Unfortunately, Leverkusen secured a point with Exequiel Palacios’ penalty kick in the fourth minute of stoppage time. Head coach Thomas Tuchel believes his team needs more physicality to win this match. Bayern, who have never lost at home to the Red Devils, have won three and drawn two, and are strong favorites to secure top spot in Group A ahead of Man United, Galatasaray, and Copenhagen. The German giants have established themselves as group-stage experts in the Champions League, boasting a 34-game unbeaten run at this stage and a record-extending 14th successive group-stage home win on Wednesday.

Due to an inflamed tendon, Bayern might be without Joshua Kimmich, as his condition puts him as a doubt here. Meanwhile, Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, Raphael Guerreiro, and Tarek Buchmann, are all confirmed to be out here.

Manchester United

Champions League: Manchester United

Man United boss Erik ten Hag has been left with a disappointing 3-1 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion, leaving him with plenty to ponder. The defeat left Man United in 13th place and nine points behind league leaders Manchester City. Ten Hag has insisted that Man United are not in crisis and encouraged his squad to “stick to the plan” as they attempt to turn their fortunes around. Next up for the Red Devils is a top-flight trip to Burnley and a challenging match against Bayern Munich in Bavaria. Man United has only lost more Champions League encounters against Barcelona than against Bayern, but supporters will remember the historic 1999 final triumph over the German club under former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Man United continues to struggle because of their injured players coming into this game. Aside from the number of injuries before they start their domestic campaign, they are now with fresh injuries. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Diogo Dalot both dealt with fresh injuries, which will make them unavailable here.
