Three Bayern men to back for goals against Manchester United

| 01.04.2014

Manchester United face a daunting task to progress in Europe with the current Champions League holders and all-round form team Bayern Munich boasting an incredible array of attacking options.

An injury-hit Red Devils are a sensational 5/1 to win at Old Trafford, with the Bavarians 1/2 favourites for victory and the draw available at 7/2.

Though such odds are traditionally unheard of in the Champions League at this stage, the Bavarians have been banging goals in for fun, with two or more scored in 24 of their last 25 competitive games.

It spells bad news for United, and you could cash in with one of these three goalscorer picks.

Thomas Muller to score anytime @ 4/5

Manchester United fans may be left wincing at the sight of Muller delivering his trademark screaming celebration come Tuesday with the German international in fine form both domestically and in Europe heading into this encounter.

The 24-year-old has scored 12 goals in 25 Bundesliga appearances this term, including four in his last five league appearances for the Bavarians, as well as four goals in the Champions League including crucial strikes in away wins over Arsenal, CSKA Moscow and Manchester City.

Mario Gotze to score anytime @ 7/4

Similarly prolific in Europe, Gotze has found the net three times for Bayern in continental competition this term, scoring against Manchester City, CSKA and Victoria Plzen in the group stage, and could add another to his tally for the season here.

A further eight goals in 22 domestic league outings – including back-to-back goals in the Bavarians last two Bundesliga fixtures away from the Allianz Arena – make him one to watch when Die Roten travel to Old Trafford this Tuesday.

Bastian Schweinsteiger to score anytime @ 10/3

The club vice-captain tends to save his goals for the biggest stage, as Arsenal fans will attest from his crucial strike in the 1-1 second leg draw with the Gunners last month, and they don’t’ come much bigger than a trip to old European Cup rivals Manchester United.

Schweinsteiger no doubt watched in horror, as a teenager some 15 years ago, while his beloved Bayern surrendered a 1-0 Champions League final lead late on against the Red Devils and having already scored twice in European competition this term looks ready to wreak havoc.
