Manchester United vs Bayern Munich: Champions League Preview and Prediciton
The UEFA Champions League resumes this week with some epic quarterfinal pairings, most predominantly in the rematch of the 1999 finals between Bayern Munich and Manchester United. The tie comes at an interesting time for both clubs as they face each other ahead of what is likely their most important league fixtures of the seasons this weekend against Schalke 04 and Chelsea. With both teams battling key injuries in the late portion of the season, they will be looking to avoid sustaining anymore as they gear up for their respective showdowns.
Manchester United, as we all know, has been virtually unstoppable in the past few weeks and has yet to show signs of slowing down anytime soon. Even without the likes of leading scorer Wayne Rooney and defensive captain Rio Ferdinand (groin and foot, respectively), United cruised to an easy 4-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers thanks to a brace from Dimitir Berbatov as well as goals from Gibson and an own goal by Bolton keeper Samuel. Both Rooney and Ferdinand are reported to have flown with the team to Germany and are expected to feature in the first leg tie. The quarterfinal tie comes at somewhat of an unfortunate time for United as their highly anticipated league showdown with Chelsea is scheduled for this Saturday. Not only must they be careful to avoid injuries ahead of what could very well determine the Premiership this season, but they must not get caught looking ahead with a 4th straight Champions League semifinal berth on the line.
Bayern Munich has been on a good run as of late but took a bit of a step backward when they fell 2-1 to Stuttgart this weekend at Allianz Arena. Now after falling behind two points in the Bundesliga standings, they have what could be considered a must-win fixture with league leaders Schalke 04 this Saturday but first must take on United for the homestand of their quarterfinal tie. This match is extremely important if they wish to advance considering how United has performed as of late at Old Trafford. Unfortunately for Bayern, they have a bit of an injury concern with star midfielder Arjen Robben a doubt for the match. Of course, there is always the concern of Franck Ribery who has battling niggling injuries all season long. If he is finally fully fit remains to be seen.
With important league fixtures looming, it’s going to be very interesting to see how these clubs come out and perform. Despite being at Allianz Arena, I’m giving the edge to Manchester United for two reasons. For one, they are in my opinion the best team in Europe and are going to be tough to take down, no matter what the circumstances. Secondly, already seeing United as the superior club, Bayern’s most important player Robben is likely to sit this tie out and without him, I’m not sure Bayern poses that much of a threat. Look for United to claim an edge ahead of the second leg.
Manchester United 2 – 1 Bayern Munich
