Thomas Tuchel has endured a tough start to this regin as Bayern boss. Dumped out of the German Cup by Freiburg in only his second game, the situation didn’t improve last week when the side traveled to Man City for the first leg of this Champions League quarterfinal. Bayern were thoroughly outclassed by their English opposition and were perhaps rather fortunate to escape with only three goals conceded. They now face a seriously tough task to progress further even if they will have home field advantage in this second leg. 

Adding to Tuchel’s woe was a fracas between players Sadio Mane and Leroy Sane. It’s been reported that the argument got so intense that Mane struck Sane across the face, which resulted in the Senegalese forward being suspended for Bayern’s next game against Hoffenheim and receiving a fine from the club. Mane may return now that he’s served his punishment, but the mood in the dressing room must surely have been impacted by the dramatic scenes. 

Meanwhile, Man City are hitting form at the perfect time. The reigning English champions dismantled Bayern in the first leg of this Champion League quarter-final tie. Goals from Rodri, Bernardo Silva and, of course, Erling Haaland, gave them a commanding 3-0 lead on aggregate. And the feeling right now is that Pep Guardiola’s team already have one foot in the CL semi-final. 

Even with all the signs pointing to their progression, Man City need to avoid getting complacent. While Bayern are certainly in serious danger of elimination, they cannot be entirely written off. In fact, Man City would do very well to keep a clean sheet at the Allianz Arena as it’s been more than three years since Bayern failed to score while playing at home in a competitive match. 

Another positive to cling to for Bayern fans is that Man City failed to win away in the last round against RB Leipzig, although they did claim a draw which would be enough here. Less comforting for Tuchel is that Man City are on a run of 10 wins in a row, and with Haaland notching his 43rd goal of the season at the weekend, keeping the Norwegian striker quiet seems an almost impossible task for any side.   

Bayern Munich have it all to do if they are to progress into the Champions League semi-final and the odds would suggest that Pep Guardiola’s men will progress, but European football is known for surprise results. Whatever happens, you won’t want to miss the Bayern Munich vs Man City live stream.
