Manchester United v Bayern Munich Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 8pm, Tuesday 12th December 2023

 

Manchester United and Bayern Munich will both be looking to bounce back from humiliating weekend defeats when they lock horns with each other in their final Champions League group match at Old Trafford tonight.

Manchester United need a great many things to go their way tonight as they look to make it through to the last sixteen of this season’s Champions League, however they are in for an extremely tough test against a Bayern Munich side which have already qualified for the knockout stages of the competition as Group A winners. Even if Erik ten Hag’s men can completely defy the odds and claim all three points at Old Trafford tonight, they would also need Copenhagen and Galatasaray to share the spoils in the other group game in order for them to go through to the next phase. This scenario, while certainly not inconceivable, is somewhat unlikely and the reality is that the Red Devils will probably exit the competition at this stage.

Ten Hag’s men may have enjoyed a welcome win over Chelsea last week but they were completely undone by Bournemouth in their last outing, the manager subsequently declaring that his side aren’t good enough to consistently compete at the top level. Ten Hag’s opposite number tonight, Thomas Tuchel, can surely empathise after his Bayern troops were thumped 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt in what was their first domestic defeat of the Bundesliga campaign.

Nevertheless, at least Bayern are through to the last sixteen of the Champions League and the pressure will be off the visitors ahead of their midweek trip to Old Trafford. Manchester United have only won one of their last nine meetings with Bayern – a 3-2 win at Old Trafford over thirteen years ago – and the likelihood is that the Bundesliga side which inflict more pain upon a United rearguard which have been leaking goals at an alarming rate this season, especially in this competition.

 

Back Bayern Munich to win and both teams to score at best odds of 13/5
