A Video History of Manchester City vs Bayern Munich

Manchester City kick-off their fourth successive season in the Champions League with a tough trip to Bavaria to take on German Champions Bayern Munich on Wednesday night. There a few tougher tests on the European stage but City can take confidence from the fact that they progressed from the same group as Bayern last season. 

This is the third time that City have drawn Bayern in the group stage in four years so both sets of players will be acutely aware of the challenge that lies ahead. The head to head is equal with both teams having won twice. Bayern fans may point out that the two games City won were effectively dead rubbers as Bayern had nothing to play for but on both occasions there was still something in it for City. Indeed, last season’s famous 3-2 win at the Allianz Arena left the Blues just one goal away from topping the group, albeit Manuel Pellegrini was seemingly unaware of such a scenario.

The circumstances on this occasion are somewhat different and both teams will be keen to lay down a marker for the rest of the campaign. The whet your appetite for tomorrow evening why not re-live the history of the fixture that is Manchester City versus Bayern Munich with the below videos.
