2 min read




The highly anticipated UEFA Champions League quarter-final clash between Manchester City and Bayern Munich is set to take place on Tuesday, with both teams eager to come out on top in the first leg. The domestic champions of England and Germany respectively, City and Bayern progressed into the quarter-finals in impressive fashion, with Bayern securing two victories over Paris Saint-Germain without conceding a goal and City scoring seven unanswered goals against RB Leipzig in their last-16 second-leg match.

City will be looking for revenge following their 2021 Champions League final defeat to Thomas Tuchel, who is now the manager of Bayern after Julian Nagelsmann was controversially sacked. City will also be buoyed by their recent form, having won eight games in a row in all competitions, including a 4-1 victory over Southampton in which Erling Haaland returned from injury to score two goals.

Despite trailing Arsenal in the Premier League, City knows that winning the Champions League trophy has become their top priority in recent years, having been unable to secure it despite their wealth and talent. As for Bayern, they have been unstoppable in the Champions League this season, winning every game so far, and Tuchel is known for his tactical flexibility in knockout competitions.

The confirmed lineups for the match are as follows: Manchester City XI (3-2-4-1): Ederson; Akanji, Ruben Dias, Ake; Stones, Rodri; Bernardo Silva, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Grealish; Haaland. Bayern Munich XI (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Pavard, De Ligt, Upamecano, Davies; Goretzka, Kimmich; Sane, Musiala, Coman; Gnabry.

Following the match, City will host Leicester City and then travel to Germany for the second leg against Bayern, while Bayern will briefly return to Bundesliga action against Hoffenheim before welcoming City to the Allianz Arena for the return leg.
