Bayern Munich were narrow 1-0 winners over Pep Guardiola's Manchester City on Wednesday evening with 20-year-old debutant Erdal Ozturk on the scoresheet.

Here are five things we learned from Carlo Ancelotti's first home game in charge of the Bavarian giants.

1. Carletto's Way

"If it ain't broke don't fix it," remains the old adage. During his early media sparring in Munich, Ancelotti has been at pains to stress that he will not tinker too much with Guardiola's passing style. "I'm not here to start...

Carlo Ancelotti prepares thin Bayern squad to meet Guardiola's new charges

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso sits down with ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein to talk about Bayern's trip to the US and Carlo Ancelotti.

"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss," crooned rock legends The Who in their worldwide hit "Won't Get Fooled Again". These lyrics may ring true for Bayern Munich fans as new supremo Carlo Ancelotti faces former coach Pep Guardiola and Manchester City on his home debut in Munich on Wednesday.

The FC crew break down Pep Guardiola's official unveiling as the Man City manager and what his expectations are this season.

It must have been fate that Pep Guardiola's first game in charge of Manchester City would be against his previous club Bayern Munich.

In three years at Bayern, Guardiola brought three consecutive titles and a host of lesser trophies, while taking them to another level. But, ultimately, he left the club wondering what he had to do to win the Champions League again.

Three semifinal defeats might look and feel like small change to fans in Bavaria, but for City that would represent a clear upward curve...

Xabi Alonso is optimistic for Bayern's season as Carlo Ancelotti takes over

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso sits down with ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein to talk about Bayern's trip to the US and Carlo Ancelotti.

It's a new season, with a new coach, but Xabi Alonso doesn't expect Bayern Munich to radically alter their playing style under new manager Carlo Ancelotti. Instead, the Italian will build on the work done by his predecessor, Pep Guardiola, at the Allianz Arena.

"Every manager has a his own way of working," the Spanish ex-international said to ESPN FC. "Certain details will be different, they have to be. But in the three years with Pep [Guardiola], many players have improved and learned things...
