The Bayern Munich coach and star is very wary of the Red Devils who meet at the Allianz Arena this Wednesday.
Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel and Bavarian centre-forward Harry Kane were on duty at a press conference on Tuesday, before they face Manchester United, slow at the start of the season, on Wednesday (9pm) in the Champions League.
– I know that the start of the season from an accounting point of view is not satisfactory for them. But if we make an effort to analyze their last game in more depth, we see 20 very good minutes, they could have led by one or two goals against Brighton.stressed Thomas Tuchel, in the auditorium of the Allianz Arena.
Manchester United are doing badly, losing three times in the first five days of the Premier League, at Arsenal (3-1) and Tottenham (2-0) and at home to Brighton (3-1).
“It doesn’t say much about them, because in a game you’re never sure of a result against Man United. Even when you think you have the fight under control, that’s the most dangerous moment.”noted Tuchel, who is wary of the transition game of the Red Devils, played by Bruno Fernandez, Marcus Rashford or Marcus Hojlund.
The Mancunian defense suffered from the absence of many players, Raphaël Varane notably absent from the group to travel to Munich, as was Harry Maguire. “United have been through a difficult time but they can be dangerous looking for a strong response. We have to be careful, we are at home, we will dictate the game and play the way we want.said Harry Kane, this summer’s star recruit in Bayern and already four goalscorers in the Bundesliga.
Bayern, who share the lead in the German championship with Bayer Leverkusen with three wins and a draw, have won their last thirteen matches in the Champions League group stage. And he is unbeaten at this stage of the competition since a defeat against Paris SG on 5 December 2017 at the Parc des Princes. Winners for the sixth time in C1 in 2020, however, the inhabitants of Munich stopped in the quarter-finals in 2021 (against PSG), in 2022 (against Villarreal) and in 2023 against Manchester City.
