Tuchel wary of ‘dangerous’ Man United ahead of crunch Champions League tie

Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel is expecting a “difficult” match against Manchester United in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday night. 

The Red Devils have endured a tough start to the 2023/24 campaign, losing 11 out of 23 games, and need to defeat the Bundesliga champions to have any chance of progressing to the knockout rounds.

Erik ten Hag’s side have managed just one win in the Champions League so far this season, beating FC Copenhagen 1-0 at home, and lost 4-3 away to Bayern in September – but Tuchel is not taking victory for granted ahead of the tie.

“My experience is that it is always dangerous to play Manchester United,” the former Chelsea manager said in his pre-match press conference on Monday.

“They have a certain aura and certain mentality that makes them difficult to defeat. I feel that is part of the DNA of the club that they can overcome difficult minutes and difficult moments.

“You see in their strong moments how strong they are and the stadium (Old Trafford) plays a big role. The spectators are emotional and the stadium creates special moments.

“It is a difficult place to come and play, but it is a good challenge for us.

“A game at Manchester United is always a big game. It cannot be described in any other way.”

Bayern have already guaranteed their passage to the found of 16 as group winners, but Tuchel is under pressure to get a result after his side lost 5-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.
