On April 19, Allianz Arena (Munich) will host the second leg of the 1/4 finals of the Champions League, in which Bayern will compete with Manchester City. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team had got a 100% result in the current major European tournament before the match against the British grandee. Moreover, it overcame Barcelona (that has become a habit in recent years, and Lewandowski’s transfer has not changed anything) and Inter at the group stage. Speaking about the 1/8 finals, the team defeated PSG with its stars, led by Messi and Mbappé, twice. And what is the use of those results if the voyage to England ended in a crushing defeat? In this case, there appears one more question – was the castling “Nagelsmann – Tuchel” justified? It goes without saying that Thomas started with an important victory in the battle with Borussia Dortmund, but after that he already managed to lose in the DFB Pokal and returned to Foggy Albion by means of a 0-3 defeat. However, being under the rule of his predecessor, the players had not been trained to “cut off”, as it happened in the case with the second, in many ways decisive ball.
The club, being under the rule of Guardiola, was able to establish its dominance in English football. The title goes to someone else only sometimes. By the way, now the team has to catch up with Arsenal, and the next round will bring a head-to-head duel. Most likely, it will be possible to come to this battle in a great mood, because the British team largely levelled the intrigue already in the first quarter-final of the Champions League. That was the case when almost everything worked. At first, Rodri succeeded with an incredible shot (even De Bruyne is envious in situations like this). Then, Haaland showed his various talents in the second half. At first, he did not hit because of the sharp corner, but gave a subtle pass to Bernardo Silva. And then he made a final 3-0 score.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
This will be the 8th head-to-head match in the Champions League between the clubs. Prior to that, the opponents strictly exchanged the victories; however, they met at the group stage in the previous seasons.
Bookmakers believe that the British grandee have slightly higher chances in the return match. Still, it can benevolently let the hosts to “slam the door”. Thus, we bet on Bayern with “a 0 goal handicap” (odd: 1.98).
