Next Wednesday, Bayern Munich will host English representative Manchester United in a match within the 2023/24 Champions League group stage. Although they are rated higher than the Red Devils at the present time, coach Erik ten Hag’s team is expected to cause many difficulties for the Bavarian Gray Tigers in their return to Europe’s most prestigious club-level arena this year.
In the confrontation at Allianz Arena, Bayern will be the team that suffers a big loss without the direction of coach Thomas Tuchel. Specifically, BavarianFootballWorks quoted a source from iMiaSanMia sharing on Twitter:
“Thomas Tuchel is suspended for Wednesday’s match against Man Utd and will does not appear on the coaching bench, after the red card he received in the return match against Man City last season. Zsolt Low and Anthony Barry will replace Tuchel in the coaching chair as well as the dressing room. Tuchel will watch the duel from the stands, possibly with his assistant Arno Michels.”
It can be said that Bayern will suffer a big disadvantage in the competition with MU. Anyway, this is not the first time the Bundesliga champion has been without a head coach. Former Gray Tigers captain Julian Nagelsmann sat out due to the Covid epidemic in the match against Union Berlin in the 2021/22 season, but still contacted assistant Dino Topmöller to help Bayern defeat the opponent 5-2.
Of course, Man Utd is not as easily conquered as Union Berlin, but with experience and home advantage, Die Roten is expected to still prevail.
