United will be licking their wounds after they warmed up for this tie by being humbled 3-1 by Brighton at Old Trafford last weekend, while Bayern, who are yet to taste defeat in the Bundesliga, played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Bayer Leverkusen last Friday.

Erik ten Hag has had to contend with a tumultuous few weeks on and off the field, and this has largely revolved around player disciplinary issues.

Bayern won’t be in any mood for forgiveness, and they boast a certain Harry Kane, who has been in free-scoring mode, which could spell trouble for the Red Devils.

This has the potential to be a mouthwatering tie, but who will strike a timely blow? To raise anticipation levels, I have provided a full preview and laced this with a couple of betting tips for you to dissect.

Bayern Munich to make light work of Red Devils

We are all too aware of what a difficult place the Allianz Arena can be, and you should probably expect Bayern Munich to monopolise possession.

Ten Hag will have to get his tactics spot on and make good use of substitutions. This was arguably called into question against Brighton when he hooked Rasmus Hojlund just after the hour mark and swapped him with Anthony Martial, who proved to be ineffectual.

United are in a bit of a sorry state, and they have conceded 10 times in their past four league games. They have also shipped more than one goal in four successive league matches for the first time since 1979.

Bayern, meanwhile, will want to do better than last term in the Champions League when they fell at the quarter-final stage at the hands of Manchester City.

However, Bayern can make teams look very ordinary. Just asked Barcelona who were drawn in the same group as Bayern and the Catalan giants lost both games as Bayern scored five unanswered goals.

United could struggle to lay a glove on Bayern, and for my first pick, I have gone with Bayern to record a resounding 3-0 win. If you like the sound of that Correct Score line, then Unibet is offering a tempting price of 11/1.

Our Correct Score Prediction

Jamal Musiala to put the finishing touches on victory

Bayern are more than the sum of their parts, but in Jamal Musiala, they have a very special player who can electrify games.

Musiala, who registered 16 goals in all competitions last term, may have yet to get off the mark this season, but he can be potent.

Yes, Kane has hit the ground running, but his record against United when he played for Tottenham, was rather modest, netting five times in 19 outings.

However, Kane appears to offer little value in the goalscorer market, so instead, I have gone with Musiala to make an impact.

Indeed, I have been swayed by the 7/1 price offered by bet365 for Musiala to grab the last goal of the game, and this could be worth following up on.
