In fact, what the Citizens achieved at the beginning of this season makes Bayern Munich worried. Before the match, the Bavarian midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger has given a warning for his colleagues to increase alertness and compactness and to ignore their 3-0 victory against Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga on Saturday when meeting The Citizens. The reason is that Schweini see Man City at a higher level than Leverkusen so to match their more effort is needed again. Bayern Munich’s Schweini said: “We really controlled the game against Leverkusen, but the real test is on Tuesday. We shall prove that Munich could face top teams like Man City." "They are in good condition, especially after a 2-0 victory from Everton. Surely our task will not be easy. But we still can beat them when playing with a compact," he added.
