Bayern Munich Vs Manchester United: Talking Tactics
Thomas Tuchel will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. The Bayern head coach could instruct his men to dominate possession and orchestrate enough chances to win this contest.
Erik ten Hag will opt for a 4-3-1-2 formation in this game. The Man United boss is expected to rely on the pace of Marcus Rashford and the guile of Bruno Fernandes to make a difference on the counter.
Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, Raphael Guerreiro and Tarek Buchmann will be sidelined for this game due to injuries. Furthermore, Joshua Kimmich is a major doubt for this clash as well because of an inflamed tendon.
Bayern Munich Predicted XI
Ulreich; Mazraoui, Upamecano, Kim, Davies; Laimer, Goretzka; Sane, Musiala, Gnabry; Kane
Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, Mason Mount, Sofyan Amrabat and Tyrell Malacia will all miss this trip to Germany because of injuries.
Jadon Sancho and Antony will both be unavailable for this game due to disciplinary reasons.
Manchester United Predicted XI
Onana; Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Reguilon; Casemiro, Eriksen; McTominay, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
Harry Kane will be Bayern Munich’s best hope for a goal in midweek. The defensive performance of Dayot Upamecano and Kim Min-jae could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest.
Both Marcus Rashford and Ramus Hojlund would have to link up with each other well in the opponent’s half so that Man United can pose a threat on the counter.
Casemiro and Scott McTominay would be instructed to protect the Man United backline and keep the Bayern attackers frustrated throughout the 90 minutes.
