Five Reasons Why United Will Beat Bayern Tonight

Five Reasons Why United Will Beat Bayern Tonight

I outlined why Bayern will beat Manchester United in tonight's Champions League quarter-final game. Now it's the other side: let's see what points to a United victory.

1) United are the better team. As simple as that. We have a bigger squad, a better first-team and we are superior to Bayern in almost every position.

2) The suspension of Bastian Schweinsteiger. One of the more impressive performers of Bayern's season, he is a vital component of their midfield and will be sorely missed.

3) Wayne Rooney. Need I say more?

4) Bayern's defence. It's been porous all season: Daniel van Buyten and Martin Demichelis are having a poor campaign, poor Holger Badstuber has to fill in at left-back even though he's a centre-back by trade while Philip Lahm is out of form and struggling at right-back. They should be vulnerable to the attacking trio of Valencia, Rooney and Nani.

5) Robben's injury problems and Ribery's lack of commitment. The former is nursing a calf injury while the latter looks like his heart is not in what he's doing. A CL quarter-final against United might rouse him sufficiently but at present it looks like neither of Bayern's most dangerous players will be at 100 percent.

Barring an unforseen collapse in form, we should come away with a decent result tonight. They aren't a bad team and Ribery and Robben are going to cause any team problems - but with our recent record in europe - we should be able to get a decent result. My guess would be 0-4.

I was gonna say...that would be an outrageous result... I agree with the second one, I was thinking either a tie or we sneak a goal past em....but they will be tough to beat as their priority this season is the champs league...otherwise ribery is gone...

I dont think winning two champions league medals this season would keep him at Bayern. After all, the "great" real madrid have summoned him.

I would take 2-1 in our favour,although 4-0 wouldn't be too bad.

Robben Doesn't even start .. On our side Rio and Roo both start .. Red Nev in the wing .. No Gomez .. Olic to lead the line .. Omens are good

oh what a start a roo goal first 2 mins amazing start maybe it will be 4-0
30/03/2010 19:48:00
very nervous first half....they probably should have had an equaliser....but i could care less...I think the way its going we probably do have more goals in us....nani's missed a good chance (unlucky) and rooney missed a good chance to add to that so it could have been 3-2 by now so 1-0 s a good reflection of the game so far i think hopefully we could up it up a notch especially when valenica gets on
