Home » 20/9: Daily Predictions: Troubled Man United face Bayern Munich

Football Predictions

Manchester United will kick off their UEFA Champions League campaign against Bayern Munich on Wednesday as they return to the top-tier European competition for the first time since the 2021/22 season.

The Bundesliga giants have not lost a group game since 2017 and have been unbeaten in 34 games in the first round, winning 31 of them including each of the last 13. In addition, the German record champions have scored at least once in all of their last 40 Champions League group matches on home turf and come against a United side who have had a torrid start to the season with their latest loss coming against Brighton in the Premier League.

H2H/Stats

Since the inception of the original European Cup, the two mammoths have only faced each other on eleven occasions. It is Bayern who have the better head-to-head record, with the Germans having won four times. United have only come out on top twice, with the remaining five games heading a draw.

Team News

While Bayern will be hoping that Harry Kane’s Premier League experience helps them overcome United, they have injury worries of their own. Neur, Buchman and Guerreiro are long term absentees with Dayot Upamecano being doubtful. Joshua Kimmich and Jamal Musiala will be assessed before they can be given the green light to play.

On their side, Man United have suffered a series of injuries since the start of the season but manager Erik ten Hag believes that defender Raphael Varane and summer signing Mason Mount are recovering well though the Bayern game might come early for them. United are still without Luke Shaw, and Tyrell Malacia while Sofyan Amrabat will be assessed.

Probable Line-Ups 

Bayern Munich XI: Ulreich, Davies, KIM, Upamecano, Mazraoui, Coman, Sane, Kimmich, Goretzka, Muller, Kane

Man United XI: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Martinez, Reguilon; Casemiro, McTominay; Fernandes, Eriksen, Rashford; Hojlund

Verdict

Man United are in shambles and there is just no way they will walk in Munich with their current form and walk away with points.
