Red Devils set for a meek surrender at the Allianz Arena, with Arjen Robben running riot for the German champions

David Moyes was full of praise for Manchester United’s defensive performance last week, although it was nothing more than keeping Bayern at bay while looking to exploit their opponents on the counter-attack and from set pieces.
A 1-1 scoreline was respectable but ultimately insufficient considering that Bayern have that away goal thanks to Bastian Schweinsteiger’s late strike before the midfielder was sent off for a trip on Wayne Rooney.
Not that Pep Guardiola’s side will miss Schweini too much considering the depth in this Munchen squad and the bookies are right to make Bayern a best price 1/4 to claim victory in this game, with Paddy Power online among those firms quoting those odds.
The Bavarian side won the Bundesliga at a canter this season and will be facing a United team who are missing the cup-tied Juan Mata and the injured Robin van Persie, while Wayne Rooney is likely to be struggling for match fitness after sustaining a toe injury.
Let’s not read too much into that 4-0 hammering of Newcastle at St James’ Park which merely confirms that David Moyes’ team are flat-track bullies who struggle to adapt when playing a higher class of opposition and Bayern certainly fall into the category.
Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Augsburg saw the majority of the first team rested and this could be men against boys on Wednesday night. Sky Bet offer 4/6 about the German side leading at half-time and full-time, with the home side likely to be fast out of the traps as they were at Old Trafford.
A 4-0 winning scoreline makes appeal at 11/1 considering that the Bundesliga champions have been scoring bucketloads this term, especially if Rooney is unavailable as it’s unlikely that Javier Hernandez or Danny Welbeck will make much of an impact without Juan Mata creating things in midfield.
Sky Bet generously offer 11/10 about Bayern winning to nil on Wednesday night and that looks like a price worth hoovering up.
TIP: Bayern Munich win to nil @ 11/10 with Sky Bet.
