The reigning UEFA Champions League winners have locked up a place in the next round. They’re playing Manchester City who sit safely in second place. There isn’t really much on the line here. If Manchester City got a win on the road they’d pull even with 15 points. If they won by a three goal margin, that’d level the goal differential.
“Coming second in the group is not really an option for us. It is something we want to avoid,” Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola said. “I have a lot of confidence in my team, but I also know how dangerous Manchester City are.
“They have incredible players – they can get three or four chances within a few minutes. So we have to really look out for that. My players have to really concentrate and be aware of the situation. We have a very big chance to be first in the group and that is what we have to aim for.”
