The Red Devils have started their 2023/24 season poorly, losing three of their first five Premier League games. Their 3-1 defeat to Brighton on Saturday angered fans who were expecting a much better start to the season.
However, things will get tough as they will face a European giant in Bayern, who have made a solid start to the season, winning three and drawing one of their first four matches.

Therefore, Erik Ten Hag's men will be under pressure to deliver on Wednesday night because most of their performances this season have been unsatisfactory.
Tuchel wary of United threat
Speaking ahead of the exciting encounter, Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel said the Red Devils can still be a threat even if their form is poor.
“Their results so far don't say much about them. They can count on their excellent transitional play, with Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and now also Rasmus Højlund up front. We can't switch off at all. Their start to the season has been unsatisfactory, but they could've led early against Brighton. They were never out of the game. United are always dangerous, they have a lot of individual quality.”
Rashford received heavy criticism after the Brighton defeat for his selfishness. Bruno Fernandes has not impressed so far this season, while new signing Rasmus Hojlund has shown flashes of brilliance.
Manchester United have won just one of their last Champions League games. Bayern won 3-1 the last time these two sides faced each other.

In a video posted online, a joyous Muller is seen jumping with his hands spread out. He seemed to be alone on the training pitch, and that was probably his preparation for the game.
Muller has faced the English giants four times, won two, drawn one and lost one. He has scored once against the 13-time Premier League champions.
