Bayern Munich vs Manchester United

, KO: 20:00 Sep 20, 2023, Allianz Arena
Manchester United

BAYERN MUNICH begin their latest bid for Champions League glory when they meet Manchester United in their Group A opener at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

The German giants came up short in their pursuit of a seventh European crown last season, as they were eliminated with ease by eventual winners Manchester City at the quarter-final stage.

Now armed with Harry Kane, Bayern are second favourites behind the all-conquering Citizens in the outright betting this season, and they should comfortably come through a pool where they have been paired alongside Man United, FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray.

After playing out a 2-2 draw at home to Bayer Leverkusen on Friday night, Thomas Tuchel will demand an immediate response from his team when Manchester United come to town.

Erik ten Hag's side suffered their third Premier League defeat of the season when going down 3-1 at home to Brighton on Saturday, on an afternoon where my main bet landed at Old Trafford.

After missing out on a spot in last season's Champions League, the Red Devils could hardly have asked for a tougher opening test upon their return to European football's premier club competition.

Outright Betting

Bayern Munich, who have avoided defeat in 18 of their last 19 Champions League home matches, are odds-on 8/15 (Bet 365) favourites to hit the ground running on Wednesday night.

Manchester United came out on top in the most famous meeting between the pair in the 1999 Champions League final, but the same outcome here is as big 19/4 (Ladbrokes) while an all square affair at the Allianz pays 19/5 (William Hill).

Betting Angles

Bayern Munich are too short to side with here so I'll instead delve into the anytime goalscorer market and back Harry Kane to get on the scoresheet at even-money (UniBet).

England skipper Kane was brought to Bavaria to give the perennial German champions a serious goals boost and it would be fair to say that he has hit the ground running.

Kane has four goals in as many Bundesliga games and he will fancy his chances of marking his maiden European appearance for Bayern Munich with a goal this midweek against a Manchester United side that have endured a pretty miserable start to the season.

Not only have the Red Devils lost three of their opening five English Premier League matches of the season, but they have also shipped 10 goals in the process.

In fact, Erik ten Hag's team have leaked exactly three goals in each of their last two domestic outings, which doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to a Bayern Munich side who boast a formidable home record in the Champions League.

Therefore, backing the aforementioned Harry Kane to capitalise on a confidence-stricken Manchester United's defensive frailties stands out at even-money (UniBet.).

At the other end of the park, I'll also dip into the total team corners market and back the visitors to earn a minimum of four corners at 10/11 (Bet 365).

Both Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg have reached the 4+ flag kick line when visiting this venue this season and United could follow suit given that they could well find themselves chasing the game at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
