Bayern Munich vs Man City: Champions League – LIVE!


Bayern Munich vs Man City: Champions League – LIVE!

Bayern Munich must pull off one of the great Champions League comebacks if they are to deny Manchester City a semi-final clash against Real Madrid. Pep Guardiola’s side were sensational when winning the first leg at the Etihad last week 3-0, a result that has left them in complete control of this quarter-final tie.

The Champions League is the one trophy City continue to crave, and it could well finally be lifted in June as part of a treble-winning campaign. Erling Haaland now has 14 goals in his last six matches, and will back himself to add to that tally tonight as Bayern throw caution to the wind.

Thomas Tuchel has admitted his side need a miracle but he was upbeat after last week’s encounter in Manchester, despite the result. They must find a way to score at least three times, while keeping a City front-line that is full of confidence quiet. Follow all the action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below!

Standard Sport prediction

Pep Guardiola will back his City side to get a result on the night to ensure they maintain their momentum, even with that three-goal advantage as a safety net.

It’s tricky to see Bayern getting anywhere close to overturning their deficit.

A 1-1 draw, Man City to win 4-1 on aggregate.


Man City team news

Phil Foden will return to Manchester City’s squad for tonight’s Champions League clash.

Pep Guardiola brought the midfielder back into training earlier this week after an operation to remove his appendix three weeks earlier, but is confident he will not need long to get up to speed.

The visitors are likely to line up in the 3-2-4-1 system that has worked wonders for Guardiola in recent weeks. John Stones could continue in midfield alongside Rodri with Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake returning to the defence after being benched on the weekend.

Ilkay Gundogan is competing for a runout alongside Kevin De Bruyne in the centre of the park, with Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez options on the right flank.

Predicted Man City XI: Ederson; Akanji, Dias, Ake; Stones, Rodri; Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland.


Bayern team news

Sadio Mane is back in contention for Bayern after being dropped by Tuchel and fined north of £260,000 for punching teammate Leroy Sane following the defeat in Manchester.

Serge Gnabry may continue up front if Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting cannot shake off a knee issue. Lucas Hernandez and Manuel Neuer are long-term injury absentees.
