Bayern Munich already have their place in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. The only achievement left for them is to make it out of their group with a set of six wins. Taking out the champions of England en route to that achievement would be a fitting part of that win.

On the opposite side of the coin, a loss for Manchester City would be the end of their Champions League ambitions this season, while also being a near death knell for their hopes of European play period.
