Manchester United’s return to the Champions League in the middle of the week couldn’t have come at a worse time for them.
The Champions League song will be played again on Wednesday night at the Allianz Arena, which will be appreciated by Manchester United supporters.
In actuality, though, their first matchday in the league serves as their toughest test. The Reds will face a dangerous foe in Bayern Munich, who are the group’s top seed.
Even if a win for United would be ideal, a draw in Bavaria would still be a respectable result, especially in light of Erik ten Hag’s team’s record against the major clubs away from Manchester. Additionally, United must deal with a dependable foe.
Harry Kane has already gotten used to life in Germany after leaving Tottenham Hotspur in the summer. In his first three games with his new team, the 30-year-old scored three goals.
Kane, a former United transfer target, poses a threat to the team, and Ten Hag has already discussed the best ways to stop the English talisman. United is completely aware of this threat. The Reds were successful in achieving it in October 2022.
“[I respect Kane because] First of all, the quantity of goals, as well as his crucial contributions, including last passes. He is simply a tremendous player with a great personality, the Dutchman observed in April.
“It’s fairly obvious how much of an impact he had on the game for Spurs; we have a plan for it, and we played very well at home; therefore, for [the rematch], we also need a very solid plan. He is a smart player, therefore you need to play defense as a team to keep him out of positions where he can significantly affect the game.
It goes without saying that the forward enjoys dropping deeper to pass the ball off to his colleagues, so the Reds’ midfield must be at its best. Casemiro and other players must be wary of Kane when he is passed on by the defensive line. Should Ten Hag be successful in winning this round of the gameThe appropriate planning will go a long way toward ensuring a successful outcome.
