Thomas Tuchel Reveals How Bayern Munich will stop Erling Haaland
Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardiola will be meeting in the UEFA Champions League for the first time since the final match of the tournament in 2021.
Tuchel beat Guardiola in the final when Chelsea and Manchester met in the final of the competition which was played in Porto during the 2020/21 football season. However, the German will be leading Bayern Munich to the Etihad Stadium in the history leg of the Quater final game before hosting the Cityzens in 8 days.
Tuchel acknowledged the presence of Erling Haaland during his pre-match press conference ahead of the game.
Of course, the style of Erling Haaland is very unique and they have adapted to fit him in. He offers them something they haven't had in recent years. We have to do it as a team. Tomorrow, we will have the role of the underdog and that is okay. We have to stay confident and stay on top of our game.
The Norwegian has been in fantastic form since he joined Manchester City, he has scored 10 goals in the Champions League and 30 goals in the Premier League this season.
The two teams will head into Tuesday's game with three wins apiece against each other. City won the most recent meeting, back in 2014-15, to draw level in the match-up.
