Total match goals – Over 2.5 goals

Man Utd vs Bayern Munich is expected to be a goal-fest. With  United looking to do the impossible and progress to playoffs, Ten Hag is under pressure to deliver magic. Old Trafford is alive to the fact the fact this is a do-or-die affair, so Red Devils in their thousands must come out to make necessary noise. We think both sides will register on the score sheet in a match that is expected to be very thrilling. Will United do the impossible or it will be another huge disappointment in a European campaign? One thing is certain! There will be lots of goals here, so over 2.5 goals is our first Man Utd vs Bayern Munich prediction.

Total team goals – Over 1.5 Bayern goals

Bayern loves to outscore opponents and for a team that is struggling with a consistency like the Red Devils, this should be fodder for Tuchel's men. With Onana expected to continue his roaming exploits in the 18-yard box, which has been typical of his style in big games like this, Bayern should have an eye for goals and we think they will. Bet on over 1.5 Bayern Munich goals.

Correct score prediction – 3-2 to Man Utd

In the final Man Utd vs Bayern Munich prediction, we take a bold guess, of course with a little luck here and hard there. Everyone remembers what Man United did a few years ago in Parc des Princes to turn around the tables in a UCL campaign against PSG. It is something we could see here, with the 1999 finals against the Bavarians still celebrated to date. We are giving United the advantage, especially with the home support and players determined to win back the confidence of weary fans. Bet on a 3-2 United victory.

The Bavarians are already qualified for the playoffs, so anything can happen here, and playing away from home makes things a little tricky for the visitors who have bad blood against the Red Devils.

Is player Casemiro fit for the game?

Man United have provided a positive update on Casemiro ahead of the clash with Bayern Munich in the final UCL group-stage clash. Casemiro is back to training after a lengthy time off the pitch due to injury. However, we do not expect Ten Hag to risk the Brazilian just yet, maybe hand him a few minutes as a sub. Casemiro was seen training alone at Carrington a few days ago before the club reached out to the press with updates.
