Bayern Munich vs. RB Salzburg Betting Prediction

Salzburg played exceptionally well in the first leg. The underdog held Bayern goal less, which isn’t an easy accomplishment. But although Salzburg played fantastic soccer, we shouldn’t read too much into the 1-1 draw. Bayern wasn’t at full throttle in the match.

Munich knew they only had to escape Salzburg with a draw in order to head into the second leg with a lead. Road goals mean more on the aggregate than home goals, which is why Bayern has the lead even though the first match ended in a tie.

Expect the real Bayern Munich team to show up in this. Bayern believes it can beat Man City and Liverpool and win the Champions League. Munich should roll to an easy 3 goals or more victory.
