Bayern Munich will host Arsenal in the Second Leg of their round of 16 Champions League match this Tuesday. In my preview for this match-up I have included my prediction along with betting odds.
Where to start with Bayern Munich? They have been absolutely dominant in every competition they have played in this year. One loss and not a single draw at home this season is more than just a little bit impressive.
In defeating Everton 4-1 in the FA Cup on Saturday, Arsenal come into Tuesday’s Champions League match with some form and a return of confidence. They will need to score three goals at the Allianz which is not going to be easy at all.
My pick is a Bayern Munich win. It’s hard not to pick them considering their amazing form all year long. In all competitions this year Bayern Munich has allowed two or more goals at home just three times. Only Manchester City has travelled there and scored three goals, as well as being the only team to win there (or not lose for that matter).
The better questions to ask are how many goals will be scored and whether Arsenal can score at all.
Betting Odds (Bovada):
Munich win: 1.29; Draw: 5.50; Arsenal win: 11.00
Recent Form: B. Munich (W, W, W, W, W, W) Arsenal (D, W, L, W, L, W)
Prediction: Bayern Munich 2 – 1 Arsenal
