Man Utd vs Bayern Munich match tip
There’s a new Harry Kane team. Many looked at the strength of the Premier League when Erling Haaland started scoring for fun having moved from Borussia Dortmund last summer, but this year it’s the reverse with Kane. Since swapping Tottenham for Bayern Munich, Kane has scored 22 goals in 18 games, only failing to find the net in four of the matches he started.
Man Utd vs Bayern Munich Bet-Builder tip
Although Man Utd got the last laugh in the 1999 Champions League final, that was actually one of just two wins they have managed over Bayern Munich. The other victory proved to be pretty pointless too, as they were beaten on away goals in the 2010 Champions League quarter-finals. The most recent meeting was a goalfest too, with Bayern edging a 4-3 thriller at the Allianz. And Kane has averaged 1.84 shots on target per 90 minutes in the Champions League so far this season.

Man Utd vs Bayern Munich odds
*Odds correct as of 15:15 on December 5
It’s do or die for Man Utd in the Champions League and they may even end Tuesday having failed to qualify for the Europa League. The Red Devils go into the final week of games bottom of the group with just four points from their five matches. They have lost three games, only managing to beat FC Copenhagen while drawing with Galatasaray last time out. Man Utd need to win and hope FC Copenhagen vs Galatasaray ends in a draw in order to reach the last 16 of the Champions League. If there is a winner in that game, Man Utd would have to settle for the Europa League with their win. A draw could also confirm Europa League football if FC Copenhagen lose. Bayern Munich, meanwhile, come into this game having already secured top spot and their place in the last 16. Thomas Tuchel’s men won their opening four games before finally dropping points against Copenhagen last time out, though the job was done.

Bayern Munich have knocked Man Utd out of the Champions League the past two times they have met, including in 2010 when they advanced on away goals thanks to a fantastic strike from Arjen Robben. However, Man Utd will always have that night in Barcelona when they beat Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final to secure the Treble.
