Football News

Manchester City travel to Germany tonight looking to build on their opening game point in the Champions League.

Drawn in a tough looking Group A, the Citizens drew 1-1 with Napoli at the Etihad Stadium, and travel to the Bundesliga leaders looking for more points on their qualification quest.

Bayern claimed a 2-0 win in Spain against Villarreal, and appear the team to beat with a plethora of attacking options at their disposal. GMF looks at the five who could cause the most problems at the Allianz Arena tonight...

Mario Gomez

The German international is in stunning form in-front of goal, scoring 40 goals in 44 games for club and country last term.

That's continued this season, with eight goals in six Bundesliga games, and the 26-year-old will be the man to stop for Mancini's men tonight.

Arjen Robben

Dutch winger Robben has proven pedigree at domestic, European and international level, and has been a revelation for the Bundesliga giants since his move back in 2009.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid star has missed a handful of games at the start of this season through injury, but his pace and ability makes him one of the winger's who could cause problems in a 4-3-3 formation.

Bastian Schweinsteiger

An 89-cap international for Germany at the age of 27, Schweinsteiger has been one of Bayern's biggest names for close to a decade.

Versatile in his ability to play both wide and in the middle of midfield, his assists have been key to the team's success in recent years, and he'll look to pull the strings against City tonight.


Thomas Müller

Müller burst onto the international stage at the 2010 World Cup, scoring five goals in six matches on the way to a third place finish in the competition.

An academy graduate through the ranks of the German giants, Müller made his senior debut in 2008 and featured in the opening game win at El Madrigal.

Franck Ribery

The French international winger has been with the German side since 2007, and featured in seven Bundesliga matches for the club this term.

With two league titles and a handful of individual honours during his time at the Allianz Arena, Ribery remains an integral part of the furniture at the club and adds is one of a handful of attacking midfield options.
