Man City vs Bayern Munich Preview

Man City boss Pep Guardiola is coming up against his former club. He guided Bayern Munich to three UCL semi-finals but got no further.

His City team is in hot pursuit of Arsenal – hammering Southampton 4-1 away from home last Saturday.

That made it eight games unbeaten in the EPL – with one draw.

In prior recent fixtures, it has beaten RB Leipzig 7-0 in the UCL, Burnley by 6-0 in the FA Cup quarter-final and rivals Liverpool 4-1.

So, clearly, with Erling Haaland in superb goal-getting form, Man City will head into this match in a buoyant mood.

Bayern Munich fired coach Julian Naglesmann on March 24.

His replacement is fellow German Thomas Tuchel – who was in charge of Chelsea when it defeated Guardiola’s Man City side in the 2021 UCL final.

Since Tuchel took charge, Bayern Munich has scored a 4-2 win against Borussia Dortmund and, last weekend, a 1-0 win at home against Freiburg.

However, it was beaten 1-2 at home by Freiburg in the last of the German DFB-Pokal Cup.

Moreover, Bayern Munich won 1-0 away and then 2-0 at home when it overcame Paris Saint-Germain in the UCL last 16 – before Nagelsmann’s departure.

Erling Haaland to Score Odds

After scoring twice in the 4-1 weekend defeat of Southampton, Man City’s Norwegian striker Erling Haaland is the unsurprising -165 favorite to score in this game in the Man City vs Bayern Munich odds.

He is rated at +225 to score first or last – which looks compelling.

In a stunning first season in England, Haaland has hit 30 EPL goals, 10 more in the UCL, three in the FA Cup and one in the EFL Cup.

He scored five in the 7-0 defeat of RB Leipzig.

Man City’s Julian Alvarez is the second favorite to score at +105 in the Man City vs Bayern Munich odds.

The first Bayern Munich player listed among the potential goalscorers is the Cameroonian Eric Maxim Chopo- Mouting at +260 or +750 to score first or last.

He missed the weekend defeat of Freiburg but is expected to be fit for Tuesday.
