Ahead of the Bayern Munich vs Manchester United match, Harry Kane said that the match would not be easy. Die Roten – nicknamed Bayern – started their work in the 2023-2024 Champions League by facing the English giants.
Bayern welcomed The Red Devils – nicknamed Manchester United – at the Allianz Arena on Thursday (21/9/2023). This match is worth looking forward to because it is a meeting between two big teams, and the two have often met in the Champions League.
Yes, according to the official UEFA website, Bayern Munich and Manchester United have met 11 times in the Champions League. Die Roten excelled by packing four wins.
Meanwhile, Manchester United was only able to achieve two wins, including beating Bayern Munich (2-1) in the 1999 Champions League Final. Meanwhile, five other matches ended with the same strong score.
Kane, who has known Manchester United since playing for Tottenham Hotspur, is well aware that this match will not be easy. Even though they are playing at home, Bayern is not expecting an easy match against Manchester United.
“We have to recover well and prepare for the match. “Every match in the Champions League is difficult, and we don’t expect anything else on Wednesday against Manchester United,” said Kane, quoted from Bayern’s official website, Monday (18/9/2023).
On the other hand, Bayern’s Sports Director, Christoph Freund, can’t wait for this classic match. Freund believes the Allianz Arena will be full of Bayern supporters who of course hope to win.
“I’m looking forward to this match, it’s truly a classic. There have been so many great matches between these two clubs before,” said Freund.
“We want to start well, which will be quite difficult. But this is a night game, the place will be full. “So, everything is ready for another high-quality match at the Allianz Arena, and hopefully, Bayern will be the ones celebrating this time,” he said.
