Bayern Munich vs Man United Preview
Bayern Munich’s Form
My pick for last season’s competition, before coming unstuck to eventual winners Manchester City at the Quarter-Final stage. The eventual Champions League winners beat Bayern 3-0 in the first-leg in Manchester before a 1-1 draw in Munich saw the German side knocked out 4-1 on aggregate.
However, Bayern Munich are entering this new European season in solid domestic form with ten points from their opening four league games. Although they dropped points in their most recent game, drawing 2-2 with Leverkusen following Exequiel Palacios’ 94th-minute penalty equaliser.
This’ll be Thomas Tuchel’s first full season in charge of the club having been appointed back in March from Julian Nagelsmann.
Bayern’s Transfer Market business intrigues me. They brought in CM Konrad Laimer, LB Raphael Guerreiro, CB Kim Min-Jae, and most notably England star Harry Kane for €100m.
There were also notable departures from the club which has seen the playing first-team squad get substantially smaller. The most notable outgoings were Daley Blind, Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Pavard and Ryan Gravenberch.

Man United’s Form
Manchester United returned to the Champions League this season following their third-place Premier League finish under Erik ten Hag. This meant the club had finished in the top four in three of the past four seasons.
Despite that form, chaos on and off the field is never far away at Old Trafford these days. Just six points in the opening five league games gives a sense of deja vu at the club.
Their recruitment during the summer was strange. On one hand, they brought in Mason Mount, André Onana, Rasmus Højlund and Altay Bayindir who all filled needed holes in the squad along with Sofyan Amrabat on loan. On the other hand, Johnny Evans coming back to the club and Sergio Reguilón on loan (due to a lack of designated outgoings) is a sign of how poorly Man United have been run under The Glazer ownership.
Man United’s last outing came against Brighton on Saturday. The Red Devils had a 31-game unbeaten streak at home going into that game but were thoroughly outclassed on the afternoon by Brighton in a 1-3 loss.
This latest loss along with the off-field chaos has the papers and even some fans questioning ten Hag’s credentials to steer the ship already. That’s despite a largely positive first-season at the helm.
