Bayern Munich vs Man United Stats and Bet Builder Tips Preview

Bayern Munich vs Man United Stats and Bet Builder Tips Preview Featured Image

Man United travel to the Allianz Arena under pressure after a slow start to the season, hoping that the spirit and inspiration of the 1999 Champions League final can lift their performance levels. The two teams have not met competitively for ten years and there is always a fierce rivalry between English and German outfits. Both teams will certainly fancy their chances of progression out of this group and these crunch clashes might be the difference between topping the standings or finishing second. We have you covered with our stats and bet builder tips preview.

Bayern Munich vs Man United Predicted Lineups

Tuchel to watch from the stands

The German champions should be at full strength, minus goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who continues his recovery from a long term injury. Bayern are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 system with Harry Kane spearheading their attack. Left back Raphael Guerriero and attacker Kingsley Coman are back in training but might not be fit enough to feature. It is worth noting that manager Thomas Tuchel is suspended from the sidelines and will be forced to watch this one from the stands.

Injury nightmare for United

Man United have several casualties with Raphael Varane, Mason Mount and Luke Shaw ruled out of the fixture. New signing Sofyan Amrabat is another on the sidelines whilst Aaron Wan-Bissaka suffered a hamstring injury vs Brighton at the weekend. Harry Maguire also has a knock and won’t feature. United will be forced into a back four which is far from their first choice with Diogo Dalot and Sergio Reguilon flanking a centre back pairing of Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof. At least Rasmus Hojlund should lead the line up front on his Champions League debut for the visitors.

Bayern Munich vs Man United Team Stats

Bayern likely to shoot freely

The Bavarian giants have unsurprisingly been a free-scoring team, averaging nearly three goals per game and they also have a healthy xG. Bayern have been firing an average of over 20 shots per game with nearly ten on target. Man United might need to rely on quality of finishing rather than quantity. Cards have been low but Bayern themselves have obtained nearly ten corners per game.

Defensive issues for the Red Devils

Man United have conceded an average of two goals per game and the main reason for that is because they’ve been peppered by shots. The opposition have been firing more than 15 shots per game at the Red Devils with nearly a third ending up on target. United themselves have averaged a healthy number of shots but only 4.80 on target which is disappointing. Corners and cards have been high in their fixtures with nearly 13 corners per match on average and over five cards.

Bayern Munich vs Man United Players to Watch

All eyes on the England captain

Harry Kane will be the centre of attention in a big fixture like this one. The former Tottenham man averages four shots per game this season and has already netted four times in the Bundesliga. It is no surprise to see him odds-on at 1.73 to score anytime and 1.50 to score or assist. Kane is 1.50 to have two or more shots on target and will be popular with many bettors when considering a Bayern Munich bet builder.

Goretzka to shoot from range?

Leon Goretzka is averaging 3.30 shots per game in the Bundesliga this season and has managed to score one goal. Whether or not this is the sort of match where he can get involved as much in an offensive sense remains to be seen, but Man United have been conceding a lot of shots and may sit deep inviting midfielders to chance their luck. Goretzka is 1.36 to try two or more shots which looks big based on his season so far.

Gnabry to grab his chance?

Serge Gnabry is another player who has been firing in plenty of shots this season, at an average of 3.30 per game. He is often known for being wasteful with opportunities but will have no qualms about pulling the trigger if he feels like it. Gnabry tends to play a free role sometimes and regularly drifts inside into ideal shooting positions. He can be backed at 1.29 to have three or more shots. The only downside is that Gnabry will probably get pulled off early so you may need him to do his work in 60-70 mins of action.

Rashford too rash?

Marcus Rashford has been averaging an absurd 4.60 shots per game so far in the Premier League but has only converted those into one goal. United will get chances on the break in this game and Rashford doesn’t have a bad record in big games to spring a surprise. He is 3.75 to score anytime and is as big as 1.44 just to have one or more shots on target. A more interesting and tempting addition to your Man United bet builder could be to take him to have two or more shots at 1.29, which is well within his reach.

Casemiro awareness the key

The Brazilian midfielder is a crucial player for Man United and his experience will be vital in a game like this one. Casemiro is popular with regular bet builders because he loves to try his luck, especially in big matches. He already averages nearly two shots per game in the Premier League this season and can be backed at 1.33 to fire in just one shot. He is dangerous from set pieces and sometimes takes on shots from low-probability chances.

Bayern Munich vs Man United Matchups to Watch

Diogo Dalot vs Serge Gnabry

The loss of Wan-Bissaka due to injury is a significant blow because he’s so strong in 1 vs 1 duels. Bayern could switch players on the left wing, but Serge Gnabry is capable of causing all sorts of problems for Dalot. The former West Brom man is yet to actually be fouled in the Bundesliga this term, but his speed and agility could make the 1.62 on Dalot to produce one or more fouls enticing. It merits consideration for your Bayern Munich vs Man United bet builder. 

Sergio Reguilon vs Leroy Sane

Bayern will also target the United left hand side where Luke Shaw is absent. Sergio Reguilon played a clean game vs Brighton but will come under significantly more pressure in Munich. What was interesting was that he himself was fouled on three occasions against the Seagulls. Reguilon is 1.36 to produce one or more fouls which is sufficient value to consider for any Bayern Munich vs Man United bet builder. Sane is a tasty 1.83 in this market which might represent some value as well.

Dayot Upamecano vs Rasmus Hojlund

Rasmus Hojland spent the majority of August injured but he is now back fit and the £72 million new signing will be leading the line for the visitors. He has had limited minutes this season but was fouled around once per game in Serie A last season for Atalanta. This is a key matchup because Upamecano can be mistake-prone on occasion. Can he stay clean for the full match? Odds of 1.20 for one foul or more suggest otherwise.
