UEFA Champions League: Bayern Munich vs Inter Milan – Match Preview

While there may not be anything riding on this game positionally for Bayern, there’s a record within their reach, as they could become the first club in UCL history to win all six group games on three separate occasions after doing so in 2019/20 and 2021/22.

The visit of Inter Milan perhaps isn’t a timely one in search of that record given Bayern have never beaten the Italian giants in Munich (D1, L3), but having won their last 13 home group UCL games, that likely won’t play on their mind.

 It was a much familiar story at the weekend too, with a thumping 6-2 win against Mainz marking the fourth successive home game in which Bayern have won by at least four goals!

Inter had a resounding home win of their own at the weekend, beating Sampdoria 3-0 in Serie A to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to seven matches (W6, D1).

Simone Inzaghi’s side are already assured of the runner-up spot in Group C, and now seek to improve upon a desperate run of five wins from their last 14 UCL away outings (D3, L6).

Despite their decent H2H record here, arresting that slide against this current Bayern side may be tricky with Inter boasting just six wins from their last 22 matches when pitted against German opposition.  One of those victories was in the UCL final of 2010, and while another win would undoubtedly be well-received, even a draw would perhaps be welcome as it would extend Inter’s unbeaten UCL run to five matches and mark their longest run in the competition without defeat since 2010

Predicted Line-ups

BAYERN MUNICH (4-2-3-1): Ulreich; Mazraoui, Pavard, Davies; Sabitzer, Goretzka; Coman, Musiala, Sane; Choupo-Moting.

INTER MILAN (3-5-2): Onana; Skriniar, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Calhanoglu, Gagliardini, Gosens; Correa, Lautaro
