Why is Bayern Munich a safe bet to win?

With a couple of wins and 3 draws in their last 5, Bayern’s form suggests they aren’t playing great soccer. But before writing off the team, it’s important to note that Bayern beat Inter Milan 2-0 in their first Champions League group stage match.

Bayern not only beat Inter by 2, but the game happened in Milan. Leroy Sane and Danilo D’Ambrosio scored the goals. Even with the 3 straight Bundesliga draws, Bayern remains just 2 points behind Union Berlin.

The Champions League is different. Bayern must win every game because they’re in a brutal group. So expect Bayern to step it up at Allianz Arena.

Possible Line-Up

  • Neuer
  • Pavard
  • De Ligt
  • L. Hernandez
  • Davies
  • Kimmich
  • Sabitzer
  • Gnabry
  • Muller
  • Sane
  • Mane

  • Win – 0-5 vs. Viktoria Koln
  • Draw – 1-1 vs. Monchengladbach

Why is Barcelona a safe bet to win?

Like Bayern, Barcelona won their first Champions League match. Granted, Barca played a team they were supposed to dominate, Viktoria Plzen. Still, just because you’re supposed to dominate a team, it doesn’t mean you always will. Bayern beat Viktoria 5-1. Franck Kessie and Ferran Torres had goals. Lewa scored 3.

In 4 starts and playing off the bench in a game, Lewandowski has 6 goals and 2 assists. He’s proving he remains the top striker on the planet. Not only that, but can you think of a more motivated player on Tuesday than Robert Lewandowski? Lewa wants to prove that the 8 straight Bundesliga titles he won while at Bayern was due primarily to his brilliance.

Possible Line-Up

  • Ter Stegen
  • Kounde
  • Araujo
  • E. Garcia
  • Balde
  • Gavi
  • Busquets
  • Pedri
  • Raphinha
  • Lewandowski
  • Dembele

Barcelona’s Last 5

  • Win – 0-4 vs. Cadiz
  • Win – 5-0 vs. Viktoria Plzen
  • Win – 0-3 vs. Sevilla
  • Win – 4-0 vs. Real Valladolid
  • Draw – 3-3 vs. Man City

Bayern Munich vs. Barcelona Betting Prediction

This is an excellent match between a couple of squads with Champions League title aspirations. Bayern Munich has a big edge because this happens on their home grass at Allianz Arena. But although Bayern has the edge, and any team with Sadio Mane has a slight edge, Barcelona is playing like a machine. Barca has won 5-of-6 with a draw.

The draw was a 3-3 club friendly against Manchester City. Lewandowski is playing the best soccer of his career. He’s dominating in a way even Barcelona fans didn’t expect.

Lewa will be motivated to prove he’s still the best striker on planet earth. No doubt, Bayern should be the favorite, but the odds are an incentive to back the road squad. Barcelona has the best striker, heads into this hot, and offers overlay odds. Barca to win in regulation is the play.
