Why is Real Madrid a safe bet to win?

Even though they were somewhat outplayed against Bayern, Real Madrid escaped Munich a draw. Now back on their grass, Real has a massive edge.

In addition, while Bayern lost their follow-up match, Real dusted Cadiz 3-0. Real shows 4 wins and a draw against Bayern in their last 5. We should expect the Champions League chalk to win the trophy to get it done on their pitch.

  • Lunin
  • Nacho
  • Carvajal
  • Mendy

  • Rodrygo
  • Kroos
  • Bellingham

Real Madrid’s Last 5

  • Win: 3-0 vs Cadiz
  • Draw: 2-2 vs Bayern Munich
  • Win: 0-1 vs Real Sociedad
  • Win: 3-2 vs Barcelona
  • Win: 1-1 vs Manchester City

Why is Bayern Munich a safe bet to win?

Bayern played a great first match. The German Bundesliga squad controlled possession 51.6% of the time and took 5 shots on goal from 14 total shots.

The 2 goals Bayern scored came from arguably their two best players, Harry Kane via a penalty kick and Leroy Sane. Kane and Sane have enough experience to keep their teammates focused, even though the match is at Santiago Bernabeau.

Also, throw out the 3-1 loss to Stuttgart. Bayern has no shot of winning the Bundesliga. So Thomas Tuchel is concentrating on the Champions League.

Possible Line-Up

  • Neuer
  • Dier
  • Min-Jae
  • Upamecano
  • Goretzka
  • Pavlovic
  • Boey
  • Mazraoui
  • Kane
  • Musiala
  • Sane

Bayern Munich’s Last 5

  • Loss: 3-1 vs VfB Stuttgart

  • Win: 1-0 vs Arsenal
  • Win: 2-0 vs FC Cologne

Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich Betting Prediction

Bayern hasn’t been mentally tough this season. For sure, Bayern is good enough to beat Real, but Munich’s overall mindset will get in the way.

We know Bayern isn’t mentally strong because after the draw against Real Madrid, they fell in a terrible performance against Stuttgart. Heading into the second leg, Real is feeling good, while Bayern is doubting their ability to hang with Madrid.

Also, Carlo Ancelotti knows the right buttons to push to get his squad to play their best. Tuchel is a good manager, but his players will fold in the face of this challenge. Real wins.
