Bayern Munich vs Man City: Preview, Team News, Likely Line-Up & Prediction
Manchester City will face European champions Bayern Munich on Tuesday in the Champions League Group D match at the Allianz Arena. Both the teams have qualified to the knock out rounds, but Pep Guardiola, whose side has won all the five matches so far, is still wary of the threat City can pose.
Bayern have won their last 10 matches in the Champions League and are leading the Bundesliga table as well, four points ahead of second placed Bayer Leverkusen. They are heading into this match on the back of a 7-0 victory against Werder Bremen.
Manchester City on the other hand are having a strange season so far. While their home form are simply impeccable – winning all of their league matches, their away form has been the biggest worry.
City have won their last three matches in the Champions League and without any pressure for this match, expect them to play with more freedom. They are 5/1 with Ladbrokes to earn a victory against the German champions.
For Bayern, Arjen Robben will miss out through injury while Philipp Lahm could return to the side after missing the last game.
Yaya Toure is suspended after picking up a third yellow card in the Champions League while Joe Hart could start in goal.
In absence of Toure, Javi Garcia could be introduced while Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko could start as lone striker, with Aguero behind.
Prediction: 2-1; Bayern will put up a strong team expect them to make it six wins out of six in the Champions League
