Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).

Manchester City continued their staggering spell of form by putting three unanswered goals past Bayern Munich in a stirring victory at the Etihad Stadium in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal last Tuesday.

It was a spectacular affair on a windy evening in Manchester as both teams looked sharp all up until Bayern Munich’s center-backs (you can read this is Dayot Upamecano) started making terrible mistakes to allow the rivals chances they will never waste.

Pep Guardiola’s machinery showed a higher class in the final third when it mattered most and deservedly claimed a 3-0 victory on the occasion.

Bayern Munich are a big team, one of the biggest in the world, and they can annul such a deficit against any rival on their day in Munich.

Nevertheless, this Manchester City team is in too good shape to allow something like that. The win over the Bavarian heavyweights was the ninth on the spin across competitions for the English champions.

Pep’s troops have won each of the previous five matches in all competitions by at least three goals difference which says enough about their current form.

On the other side, the atmosphere in Bayern Munich’s dressing room is far from idea, especially after the alleged fight between Sadio Mane and Leroy Sane just after the first leg on English soil.

Bayern Munich vs Manchester City Head-to-head

  • Manchester City took the lead in the head to head record against the Bavarians as they now have six wins and five losses in eleven games in this matchup.
  • Interestingly, none of eleven head to head affairs between these two heavyweights finished without a winner.
  • Only one of the previous three head to head meetings saw goals scored at both ends.

Bayern Munich vs Manchester City Prediction

Thomas Tuchel has too many problems to address at the moment. He by no means got off to a promising start to the reign at Allianz Arena with two wins and losses in the inaugural four games in charge of Bayern Munich. The Bavarians have allowed at least two goals in three of these four outings under Tuchel.

Bayern Munich clearly have defensive issues and Manchester City are currently the most ruthless attacking team on the planet. Erling Haaland should once again get space to punish Bayern’s defensive holes. You can back the Norwegian superstar to score anytime at the 1.83 odds, while you’ll hardly make a mistake with the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams Top Score pick at the 1.72 odds either.
