On Wednesday night at the Allianz Arena, the Bundesliga champions—featuring former Spurs star Harry Kane—will face Erik ten Hag’s struggling team in front of a national talkSPORT audience.
Bayern is still undefeated in the league but United lost 3-1 to Brighton on Saturday, their third setback of the season.
It appears that Muller, in particular, is highly optimistic about his team’s chances, as evidenced by a video that has gone viral on social media.
The 34-year-old was spotted galloping around a pitch at Bayern’s training facilities despite the impending match.
As his team is ready to defend the title they last won in 2020, a sly grin spread across his face.
Bayern’s season ended early in the Champions League last year after they were eliminated in the quarterfinals by eventual champions Manchester City.
On Wednesday night, Harry Kane will make his first appearance against Premier League competition since his offseason transfer from Tottenham.
Reports have suggested that the 30-year-old would prefer to join United next summer for free if given the opportunity.
Despite this, he has scored four goals in five games for the club.
This matchup is a fantastic opportunity for both teams to have a strong start to the Champions League season, and it’s possible that Kane may start alongside Muller. Group A also includes Galatasaray and FC Copenhagen.
