Why is Villarreal a safe bet to win?
Granted, the home team doesn’t show very good form, but although Villarreal lost 1-0 to Cadiz and 2-0 to Levante in their last couple, both Primera Division opponents Villarreal should have beaten, the home squad is worth a look to upset Bayern.
Juventus entered the match versus Villarreal with momentum. Also, the game happened at Allianz Stadium and on Juventus’ pitch. Villarreal scored 3 goals in front of Juve’s fans. The La Liga team beat Man United for the Europa League title last season. They’re proving they have what it takes to hang in the Champions League, this happens on their pitch, and soon Villarreal should turn around their form. Why not turn the form around on Wednesday versus Bayern?

Why is Bayern Munich a safe bet to win?
Bayern had struggled. But the struggles were against Bundesliga squads and calling the 2 draws struggles might be false. Bayern drew versus Leverkusen and Hoffenheim, a couple of teams that always plays Bayern tough. The Bundesliga power dominated their last Champions League opponent, Salzburg, by 7 goals to 1.
Not only that, but Bayern heads into this after beating Union Berlin 4-0 and dusting Freiburg 4-1. The victory over Freiburg impresses big time because the match happened on the road. Also, Robert Lewandowski didn’t score a goal and Bayern still dominated.

Villarreal vs. Bayern Munich Betting Prediction
Villarreal has a tendency to step it up against top competition. Still, even though this happens at the Estadio de la Ceramica, it’s tough seeing Villarreal hanging with Bayern. Munich is playing like the best club team on the planet. Liverpool and Manchester City are in the mix, but Bayern might be gelling.
We can’t forget that this Bayern squad went through massive changes during the summer transfer window. The fact Lewandowski didn’t score a goal and Bayern blasted Freiburg is huge. The four players that did score, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Corman, and Marcel Sabitzer, have gotten into Bayern’s flow. Add Lewandowski and it’s obvious that Bayern is of a much higher quality than Villarreal.
Munich won’t pull a Juve. Bayern should beat Villarreal and is an overlay at -175. Go Bayern.
