FC Bayern visit FC Copenhagen on Matchday 2 of the Champions League group stage. All voices and reactions from parking.
Copenhagen – After the 2-2 draw in the league against RB Leipzig at the weekend, FC Bayern continue with the Champions League. FC Copenhagen is waiting. The German record champions won the first group game 4-3, and they are also looking for a win in the second game.
FCB coach Thomas Tuchel will definitely have to do without Serge Gnabry in the Danish capital, who suffered a fractured forearm in the cup match against Preußen Münster. In addition, central defender Matthijs de Ligt (knee problems) will have to take a break for a few more days, according to sporting director Christoph Freund.
FC Bayern in the Champions League: Guerreiro could slip into the starting eleven
Raphael Guerreiro, who arrived on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund in the summer and made his debut for FC Bayern against Münster, could be in the starting line-up for the first time against FC Copenhagen.
FC Bayern will definitely go into the game as favourites, while Copenhagen, who lost 0-2 to FC Midtjylland at the weekend, will only play the role of underdog. We summarize the voices and reactions around the game here.

Miroslav Klose (pundit and former Bayern player) before the match on Amazon Prime about...
... Impact from Kane: "I think he does it absolutely better. From what I've seen so far, he's a fantastic player."
... Kane's mentality after a career without a title: "I think that's hugely important when you've not had anything tangible in your hands yet. It's comparable to me at the World Championships, second twice, third once. Then you are actually nothing, of course you want to hold something in your hand. Then this greed is there."
... Copenhagen: "I think they're really, really good. How they try to play football from behind. You can see a clear handwriting from the coach, which is really good. Extremely dangerous team."
... Manuel Neuer's comeback and his relevance: "Anyone who has ever played with Manuel Neuer knows he's an incredible goalkeeper. He's come back from a big injury before and he has the brutal attitude, you really have to say that. I'm convinced he'll come back."
