Bayern Munich is leading the group with 9 points from 3 games. They are in 2nd place in the Bundesliga after playing 10 games and garnering 26 points. Their last game saw them secure a crucial 4:0 win over Borussia Dortmund, although the scoreline is deceptive as Dortmund failed to capitalise on their chances. Head coach Thomas Tuchel deploys a 4-2-3-1. The coach, known for his strict approach, has softened his ways of communication with players. Bayern Munich is known for their lightning-fast counter-attacks, each of which they try to convert into a shot at the opponent's goal. Their flawless transitions into quick attacks is what makes them so formidable.
English forward Kane is in excellent form with a tally of 15 goals already. The Brit has quickly adapted to his new team and at this rate, he could surpass Robert Lewandowski's recent goal-scoring record. Kimmich will miss out on the game, but even without their midfielder, Munich will still look powerful. The field's main conductor might be rested for the stand-off against Galatasaray.
Galatasaray continues to fight for a knockout stage spot with 4 points in their kitty. They currently lead the Turkish Superliga with 31 points from 11 rounds. Head coach Okan Buruk often deploys a 4-2-3-1 formation. In their previous game, Galatasaray triumphed over Kasımpaşa with a 2:1 score. The team, free from injuries, is in top form. The only blow is the suspended Ndombele. The player, on loan from Tottenham, has been penalised for ordering a burger late at night and for weight issues. Buruk has declared he won't play the Frenchman until he weighs 75 kg. Galatasaray's star player is forward Mauro Icardi, who is practically scoring in every match. The Argentinian bomber is not only a threat to the opposing goal, but he also assists his partners.
Bayern Munich and Galatasaray have faced each other three times, with the German side coming out on top twice and the Turkish side unable to secure a win. Last time in the Champions League, Galatasaray had all the chances to improve their stats, but they failed to capitalise. Bayern launched 11 shots at their opponents' goal in the first half, after which they slowed down. The match ended 3:1 in Bayern Munich's favour.
