Game Preview

Manchester City are undefeated in all competitions since November 12, 2022, winning each of their nine previous games. At home, they’re even better, with all wins in 2023. The most impressive fact is that in their last three games at Etihad, they scored a total of 17 goals. Eight of those goals were the work of Man City’s best striker Erling Haaland. The other nine were scored by Julian Alvarez (4), Ilkay Gundogan (2), Jack Grealish (2), Kevin De Bruyne (1), and Cole Palmer (1).

Knowing all this, it’s almost certain we’ll see some of those guys score today against Bayern. The big question is whether their output is going to be good enough to bring another victory to their team. Well, it all depends on how the German team plays today.

It’s common knowledge that Bayern Munich have a fantastic roster, even though they haven’t been too impressive throughout the 2022-23 season. However, it may have something to do with coaching. The club management wasn’t satisfied with Julian Nagelsmann, so they sacked him some two weeks ago and put the 2021 Champions League winner Thomas Tuchel in charge. He was in charge of Chelsea at the time, who defeated Manchester City in the final.


Prediction

Manchester City are aware of how tricky Bayern can be, which is why they’re going to take this game very seriously. And when Pep’s boys take things seriously, they usually win.
