Bayern Munich and Man United are a tale of two cultures

  Bayern Munich and Man United are a tale of two cultures IAN HERBERT: European champions Bayern have turned United into a speck in their rear view mirror, while spending vastly less than them in the transfer market. The humbling truth for United is this. The Bayern Munich starting XI which beat PSG in last month's Champions League final cost £200m. The Man United starting XI defeated 6-1 at home by Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday cost £456m. The outlay on Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire would have bought virtually the entire Bayern team.

Atletico suffered their first defeat of the 2020-21 season on Tuesday, going down 4-0 to Bayern in their Champions League Group A opener at the Allianz Arena – their joint-heaviest defeat of Simeone's nine-year tenure.

Taking on Betis at the Wanda Metropolitano is their next task, and by avoiding defeat they would make it a club-record 21 games unbeaten in LaLiga.

  Simeone already plotting Bayern upset after 200th LaLiga victory with Atletico Madrid Diego Simeone enjoyed a milestone victory on Saturday but is already thinking of how to beat Bayern Munich, "the best team in the world".A 2-0 victory away to Celta Vigo, courtesy of goals from Luis Suarez and Yannick Carrasco, took Simeone to a double-century of wins in Spain's top flight in his 330th game in charge.

However, Atleti have conceded just one goal in their four LaLiga games this term and Simeone is expecting them to produce a positive response after the disappointment of their defeat to Bayern.

"I absolutely trust the team, despite the painful, heavy defeat in Munich," Simeone told a news conference on Friday.

"I got a lot of positive things from the game and I totally believe in the team we have.

"I see them play with great enthusiasm, with great intensity and eager to be the protagonists.

"Tomorrow we will see it [the team's personality]. I absolutely believe in my players, I know their quality. We face a team that with Manuel have improved a lot, especially their enthusiasm, defence, and the confidence you can see in Betis beyond the results.

"They won twice away from home, so they are a dangerous team. Maybe, if I am not wrong, they are one of the teams who have created the most chances in LaLiga."
