Bayern Munich vs Man United Predictions
Bayern to Win and Score Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.75 (3/4)
The Bavarians are poised to best a Man Utd side reeling from back-to-back EPL losses by a two-goal margin. Bayern have scored two or more goals in their last four league games. They will rely on the wealth of UCL experience from Thomas Muller. The prolific talisman has won the UCL twice and scored over 50 goals in the UEFA Champions League.
The hosts also have Harry Kane on their roster. His goal-scoring abilities could be the difference against United. The poor defensive form of Man United will also benefit active game from Gnabri and Sane, and two goals should be a minimum for the hosts.
Both Teams to Score and Total Over 2.5 @ 1.73 (8/11)
Historical trends indicate both Bayern and Man Utd often find the net when they face off. In their previous encounters, both teams have typically contributed to an aggregate of three goals or more. Despite the lack of stability in the defense, MU’s attack with Hojlund, Rashford, and Fernandes is still scary for any team.
Harry Kane to Score Anytime @ 1.83 (5/6)
Record-signing Harry Kane scored his fourth league goal for his new club in their 2-2 draw against Leverkusen. The prolific striker will face a familiar side he scored six goals against during his spell at Tottenham. Due to his proficiency in front of goal, Kane is a solid option to score in this fixture.
Bayern Munich vs Manchester United Team News
Bayern will be without Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Koman, and Raphael Guerreiro. Despite these misses, the team still has ample options fit for the game. We expect them to field a formidable side in the clash. Expect to see high-flying wingers Sane and Gnabry from the flanks, with Muller assisting Kane centrally.
Man Utd has a lengthy injury list, with players like Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Tyrell Malacia, and Amad Diallo out due to injury. Mason Mount and Amrabat must pass a late fitness test to feature in the game. Antony and Sancho are out due to disciplinary actions from the team.
Recommended Bayern vs MU Betting Picks
Given Bayern’s firepower and a more robust squad, they will likely dominate a Man Utd side beleaguered by injuries and form issues. It should be a comfortable win for the Bavarians. You can get the best betting markets and odds for all UCL matches by visiting our online football betting sites.
