Manchester United arrived Germany on Tuesday ahead of today’s Champions League quarter-final second-leg wrap up tie against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Upon arrival, United manager David Moyes was asked during a press conference, to look back at Bayern’s recent record against English clubs and find a sliver of hope, and the Scot believes his side can capitalise on the Bavarians’ weakness at home to Premier League oppositions.
Statistically, Bayern’s record in their own stadium has not been great against teams from England since losing in the Champions League final here to Chelsea 2012, with four games and no victories.
That defeat was on penalties, though, while two subsequent failures to beat Arsenal in last-16 second legs came on the back of comfortable away wins and
last winter’s loss to Manchester City in the group stage.
“I think it would be something which is more in Bayern’s mind that the English teams have come here and got a good record,” Moyes said.
“They will have that doubt in their mind. They are European champions but they will have the games they
have played against English teams in mind. We will try to use it to our advantage.”
