Bet Live: Bayern Munich and Manchester City Clash in the Champions LeaguePublished September 17, 2014 by Amir G
Champions League action continues tonight with an intense fixture between Bayern Munich and Manchester City at the Allianz Arena (7:45pm UK time).
The second day of the UEFA Champions League group stage games continues tonight as one of the best matches goes down in Munich's Allianz Arena where Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich hosts Premier League champion Manchester City for what's expected to be an intense game kicking off at 7:45pm (UK time).
Bayern without Ribery
Despite the home advantage, Bayern Munich will be missing a lot of key players including Franck Ribery who's still recovering from a long-term knee injury. Arjen Robben is also in question due to a knee injury but might take part, however Alcantara, Holger Badstuber, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Rafinha and Javi Martinez will all be sidelined. Still, Bayern is armed with dangerous players like Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski which are a burden on any defense.
Bayern has an open cheque with Manchester City, after they were beaten 3-2 by the Citizens at home last season with the guests coming back from trailing by two goals.
Manchester City Seeks "Champions League Glory"
Ahead of tonight's game, Manchester City midfielder James Milner said that the time has come for his team to prove itself, but a start against Bayern Munich at the Allianz is not the ideal beginning to a campaign, and the Citizens have won only two matches out of five played this season, managing to squeeze one point out of the Arsenal meeting last weekend. To add some salt, boss Manuel Pellegrini will watch the game from the stands due to a touchline ban.
