The Bavarians have won the UEFA Champions League six times in their history and have been a force to be reckoned with in the UEFA Champions League group stage. The Bavarians are unbeaten in the group stage since losing 0-3 to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2017.
The Bavarians are unbeaten in the UEFA Champions League group stage for 34 matches, including a recent 13-game winning streak. Bayern Munich is on pace to break both the UEFA Champions League group stage record for the longest unbeaten streak and the longest winning streak.
Bayern Munich is even stronger at home. Bayern Munich has won 38, drawn one and scored in all 40 UEFA Champions League group stage home games since the 0-2 defeat to Bordeaux in November 2009.
Bayern Munich have also been strong against United. In five home games against the Red Devils, the Bavarians are undefeated, drawing three and losing two. 스포츠토토
Kane, a summer signing from Bayern Munich, has five career goals against the Red Devils and has four goals and three assists in his last 10 appearances against the Red Devils.
United have been in a bit of a slump of late heading into their first UEFA Champions League game of the season. They are on a two-game losing streak, including a 1-3 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion in the fifth round of the 2023-24 Premier League on Nov. 16. They have conceded two or more goals in their last four matches, exposing their fragility. With key defender Varane out injured, United will be without flankers Sancho and Ahn.
