Man Utd vs Bayern Munich preview

Man Utd must beat Group A winners Bayern Munich today in order to stand any chance of progressing from the Champions League group stage. And even that might not be enough. Any result other than a Utd victory would see the Red Devils finish bottom of the group and wave goodbye to European football for the rest of the season.

A humiliating 0-3 home defeat to Bournemouth has left Erik ten Hag’s men in a tailspin that they need to recover from quickly. Fortunately for them though, Bayern were also on the wrong end of a hammering at the weekend, a 5-1 shocker at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt. 

Utd no longer control their own fate, but their task is straightfoward. They have to win. Three points at Old Trafford tonight, combined with a draw between Copenhagen and Galatasaray, would see the Red Devils qualify for the knockout rounds. 

If Man Utd were to beat Munich, and either Copenhagen or Galatasaray were to win their final game, however, ten Hag’s men would finish third and get funneled into the Europa League. 

In a campaign that’s seen Utd lose two games from winning positions and squander a two-goal lead to draw another, all while scoring 12 and conceding 14, there’s no telling what could happen at Old Trafford. It certainly won’t be dull. Read on as we explain how you can get a Man Utd vs Bayern Munich live stream wherever you are, and watch the Champions League online.
