Manchester United Set to Kick Off Champions League Campaign Against Bayern Munich
Manchester United is poised to embark on their Champions League journey with an away fixture against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
The Champions League draw, conducted last month, has pitted United against Bayern, Galatasaray, and F.C. Copenhagen in the group stage, fostering expectations that the Red Devils will advance to the knockout rounds.
In the 2021/22 season, United made their last appearance in the Champions League, topping their group by defeating Villarreal, Atalanta, and Young Boys before bowing out in the round of 16 against Atletico Madrid.
Bayern Munich boasts a rich European history and last encountered United, then under the management of David Moyes, in the 2013/14 Champions League quarter-finals. In that season, the German side were the reigning champions and emerged victorious with a 4-2 aggregate score.
Erik ten Hag’s squad has faced difficulties in the early matches of the new season, entering this encounter on the back of two consecutive losses.
Regarding early team updates, Raphael Varane and Mason Mount have returned to training but did not make the trip, while Harry Maguire has been sidelined.
