Expected lineup Manchester United vs Bayern Munich:
Rasmus Hojlund and Alejandro Garnacho in the starting lineup
Bayern Munich vs Manchester United
After Manchester United’s disappointing performance against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League, the chances of a positive result in their next Champions League match against Bayern Munich look slim. United have had a difficult start to the season and have been surrounded by off-field controversy.
The match against a formidable Bundesliga side, coached by the impressive Harry Kane, presents two possible approaches:
a defensive strategy to limit damage or an assertive strategy that sees this as a free opportunity in a match where United are not likely to win. Coach Erik ten Hag’s choice will shape the appropriate starting lineup.
We hope that Ten Hag will take a more decisive approach and create a strong attacking team. Here is our predicted starting lineup:
– Right back:
Diogo Dalot (assuming Aaron Wan-Bissaka is not available)
– Leave behind:
– Central midfielder:
Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof (or Raphael Varane if appropriate)

– Defensive midfielder:
– Attacking midfielder:
Alejandro Garnacho (or Facundo Pellistri)
– Left wing:
While the absence of Antony and Jadon Sancho creates opportunities for young talents like Alejandro Garnacho and Facundo Pellistri, Rasmus Hojlund should lead the attack with Marcus Rashford on the opposite wing. This trio has the potential to become a notable young force in world football.
Mason Mount is also close to returning from injury and could play as a winger if he is available.
Overall, we expect a similar line-up to the one used on Saturday, with Scott McTominay likely to make way for a winger. However, the bench could be strengthened with Mount, Sofyan Amrabat, Raphael Varane and Aaron Wan-Bissaka providing further options.
