Manchester United have won all four of their home matches in the Champions League this term but very few people expect them to extend that sequence to five as they entertain holders Bayern Munich at Old Trafford.
The task for David Moyes’s men would be tough enough if they were at their best but the fact that they have looked so vulnerable since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure means that any thoughts they have about reaching the last four at the expense of the Bundesliga outfit have to be considered pure fantasy.
BetVictor chalk Pep Guardiola’s rampant side up at 1/2 to take a lead back to the Allianz Arena and the porousness of the hosts’ rearguard surely makes the Bavarians a banker.
Put simply, Manchester United have consistently failed against decent quality opposition this season and Bayern Munich are a far stronger side.
They’re 5/4 (BetVictor) to get their noses in front in the first period to ensure that they lead at the end of each half and in a match that’s odds-on at 8/11 at Stan James to see both teams find the net, BetVictor’s 8/1 about a 2-1 away win isn’t without appeal.
Alternatively, Coral quote the Germans at 21/10 to prevail but fail to keep a clean sheet.
Bayern Munich to win and both teams to score – 21/10 (Coral)
