Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Bayern Munich will look to kick off their Champions League campaign in style when they take on Manchester United at their Allianz Arena in the Group A derby. The Bavarians dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend and, no doubt, they are eager to return to winning ways as soon as possible. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Harry Kane, who joined the club from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer, while all Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, and Raphael Guerreiro remain in the recovery room.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Brighton and given their three-game losing run in Munich, we predict that the visitors are going to return to England empty-handed. All Sofyan Amrabat, Raphael Varane, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, and Tom Heaton are injury for the visiting team, while Alejandro Garnacho is pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (Leroy Sane):
Leroy Sane began his senior career at Schalke 04. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as attacking midfielder as well, made his debut for die Knappen on 20 April, 2014 against Stuttgart. Sane came as a substitute in the second half of the match, replacing Max Mayer 13 minutes before the final whistle.
He scored 11 goals in 47 league appearances for Schalke and on 2 August, 2016 he signed a deal with big-spending Premier League side Manchester City. The former Schalke footballer joined the Citizens on a five-year deal for a fee of £37 million. Sane was born in Essen on 11 January, 1996, but his father is Senegalese.
Souleymane Sane used to play for the Senegalese national football team in the past, while his mother Regina Weber was a rhythmic gymnast. Speaking of his international career, Leroy Sane has 6 caps for Germany U21 and he made his debut for the senior team on 13 November, 2015 in a 2-0 loss to France.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
