Bayern Munich and Manchester United square off in the Champions League on Wednesday and we're backing Harry Kane to find the net.
The pregame narrative: Man United and Erik ten Hag were heavily invested in signing Kane during the summer transfer window. But Tottenham ultimately sold the striker to Bayern Munich and we think the English superstar will deliver against the Red Devils.

Bayern Munich vs. Manchester United best bet
Best Bet: Kane to score (-124)
Bayern are and have been the class of the Bundesliga for some time.
The club has won 11 straight titles and did so last year without Kane on board. But Champions League trophies are an ambition for Bayern and ever since losing Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, it's clear they've needed a world-class striker to compete with Europe's best teams.

That's exactly what Kane is. The former Tottenham man is second all-time in Premier League scoring (213) and has 21 goals in 32 Champions League appearances. He's already netted four goals in four Bundesliga matches for Bayern.

Manchester United could certainly use his scoring but they've got more pressing issues to deal with right now — a horrible defence. The Red Devils have conceded 10 goals (third-most) in five EPL games and have allowed the fifth-most shot attempts (73).
United have allowed 56 shots from open play (fifth-worst) and have the third-worst xG ratio (0.13) as a result, according to TheAnalyst.com. The Red Devils' last game played was a 3-1 home loss to Brighton.
ten Hag's side is a mess right now and we expect Kane to take full advantage.
Key stat: Manchester United have allowed six goals in their last two games.
