MANCHESTER UNITED open their 2023/24 Champions League account with a tough trip to Bayern Munich – and Red Devils fans are fearing the worst.
Erik ten Hag’s men were completely picked apart by Brighton at Old Trafford on the weekend.
And this result follows a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal which led to Jadon Sancho being axed from the first team.
However, the United boss will certainly feel as if his team can beat Thomas Tuchel-less Bayern who haven’t been firing on all cylinders this season.
But the Bavarians have a prolific ex-Premier League striker up top in Harry Kane, and he’ll be desperate to add to United’s current woes.
When is Bayern vs Man Utd?
- Manchester United travel to Bayern Munich for their opening Champions League clash on Wednesday, September 20.
- It is scheduled to get underway at 8pm BST.
- Allianz Arena in Germany is the chosen venue for this blockbuster match and it can host approximately 70,000 fans.
- Bayern sent United crashing out of the competition when the sides last met competitively in 2014.
What TV channel is it on and can it be live streamed?
Bayern Munich vs Manchester United will be broadcast LIVE on TNT Sports 2.
Coverage is scheduled to commence from 7pm BST – a whole hour before kick-off.
Fans can also stream the game on the TNT Sports website.
Alternatively, SunSport will have coverage of the entire action through our live blog which includes pre-match and post-match reaction.
What is the team news?
Thomas Tuchel will not be on the sidelines due to being sent to the stands in Bayern’s final Champions League game of last season.
And Kingsley Coman could be unavailable too after missing Friday’s draw with Bayer Leverkusen with a muscular injury.
Legendary German keeper Manuel Neuer is also out of action after sustaining a leg break last December.
