With the international break coming to an end, the attention will switch to club football from the weekend. The Bundesliga campaign will resume for Bayern Munich on Friday against Bayer Leverkusen. However, the excitement is building up for the start of the Champions League from next week.
Bayern will host Manchester United in an eye-watering first-group game on Wednesday next week. The Bavarian club will be meeting the Red Devils in the Champions League for the first time since the 2013/14 campaign. Along with Manchester United, Die Roten will also face Galatasaray and FC Copenhagen in the group stage.
Ever since winning the title in 2020, Bayern has struggled to go deep in the Champions League. They suffered a humiliating defeat against Manchester City in the quarter-finals last season. After a strong summer transfer window, Bayern will hope to do better in the UCL this year and bring the trophy back to Allianz Arena.
In the buildup toward the start of the Champions League next week, it is a good time to reflect on Die Roten’s rich history in the competition. To do so this year, we will look back at the three remarkable goals for Bayern in Europe’s premier competition.
