Real Madrid v Bayern Munich betting is so nicely poised ahead of the second leg, with the Germans holding on to a 2-1 advantage. Of course, they did concede an away, which may come back to haunt them, but they are in a position where they can attack Madrid with the reward of away goals on Wednesday night. A draw would be enough to see Bayern through and they are more than capable of catching Real Madrid out on the break. However, if the game ends up in a 0-0 stalemate, then there will be some betting insurance paid out by highly popular online bookmaker Bet365. The bookie offers its 0-0 Bore Draw Money Back special for all football matches which are listed on their site, and it is coverage which is well worth taking advantage of.

The set-up is simple here, either Bayern Munich hold out for a draw or a win in order to progress through to the Champions League final comfortably. There is the possibility of Bayern losing and still progressing, but they can’t lose by more than a one goal margin, and they can’t lose to nil. A 1-0 win for Real Madrid would take the Spaniards through on the away goal rule, and so Bayern need a draw at minimum. However, the Germans are good enough and how important will that 90th winner in Munich from Mario Gomez prove to be? Bayern won’t have happy memories of the Bernabeu, as this is the venue at which they lost the 2010 Champions League final against Inter Milan. The Inter Milan boss then? Jose Mourinho of course. So Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, who has a very powerful side at his disposal have a very tough trip on their hands because of Real Madrid’s home form. But these are two European giants with 13 European Cups between them, but Madrid are going for a record 10th title this season. Out of 46 times that Bayern Munich have held a lead after the first leg of a knock-out tie in UEFA competition, they have moved through on all but 8 occasions.

Bayern Munich actually hold the lead in the head to head record against Real Madrid, with eleven wins against Madrid’s six out of 19 previous meetings, and Bayern Munich have prevailed on three of the four previous occasions when they have met in the European Cup semi final. So there is history here to suggest that Bayern can pull this off, and with the Champions League final being held on their home turf, there is great incentive. The last time in fact that they came up against other in a two-legged knock-out (back in the 2006/07 Champions League) Bayern Munich prevailed then after losing 3-2 at the Bernabeu before claiming a 2-1 win at home. Will history repeat itself again in the scoreline? A 3-2 win for Real Madrid again is out at 20/1 with Bet365 in the Correct Score market, which is covered by the Bet365 promotion. Bayern haven’t been producing in Spain lately though, with their win at Villareal in this year’s group stage, their first victory in the country since 2001. Bayern Munich hold a W5 D4 L9 in Spain. They won’t have been buoyed by seeing Jose Mourinho’s Madrid beat Barcelona in La Liga on the weekend though.

Real Madrid secured a crucial 2-1 win away at Barcelona on Saturday, which should see them take the title. Cristiano Ronaldo netted the winner, which should put Jose Mourinho’s men on cloud nine and fully confident of taking their place in the Champions League final. Madrid have been flying this season and they have won ten of their last eleven matches in the Champions League now, and in their five home fixtures this season alone they have netted 22 goals. Pretty impressive stuff, and the case for Real Madrid grows because they have a tremendous record at home against German side. Madrid went to Munich last week with a terrible away history against Bundesliga clubs, and while that continued with the 2-1 defeat, they can look at their W17 D3 L2 home record against German sides and be eyeing up a spot back in Munich where the Champions League final is being held.

This the record 23rd European Cup semi final appearance for Real Madrid, and they have a W12 L10 record at this stage. Incidentally, they have lost their last two semi final appearances in the Champions League, and have lost three of their last four (including one semi final defeat against Bayern Munich back in the 2000/01 season). Real Madrid though have been in this position before and 35 times in UEFA competitions they have lost the first leg, and they have still progressed on 22 of those occasions. In the seven times they have lost 2-1 away in the first leg, Madrid have progressed through on five of those occasions. Real Madrid have the unquestionable forward power with Cristiano Ronaldo, but not only that, he has great support from Higuain and Benzema who are weighing in heavily with tallies for the season. Starting a goal down probably won’t be phasing Jose Mourinho all that much, his side have the power to turn on the goals and Cristiano Ronaldo is 11/4 favourite at Bet365 to open the scoring, while Bayern’s lethal marksman Mario Gomez is at 6/1.

Ladbrokes

Online bookmaker Ladbrokes are offering a Money Back Special for Wednesday night’s Real Madrid v Bayern Munich betting. The strong German side hold a 2-1 advantage heading back to the Bernabeu, but they will know that a big response will be coming from the Spanish giants. Bayern’s Mario Gomez netted a late winner in the first leg, and that could be a vital lifeline as they head to Spain. Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho will not have taken that first leg result too lightly, and after he lead Real Madrid to an important victory over Barcelona in the La Liga title decider last weekend, he will no doubt be looking at his side’s prolific home form and still be fancying themselves as favourites. It is hard to look past Real Madrid as favourites for this match, especially as they have such as strong home record against German sides.

So Bayern Munich do head to Spain with something to defend. However, they may need to grab themselves an away goal, which could make a whole world of difference on the night. Arjen Robben, one of the many stars in the Bayern Munich line up, is the central focus of the Money Back Special being offered by online bookmaker Ladbrokes for Real Madrid v Bayern Munich betting.

Bayern Munich v Real Madrid Odds

Bayern Munich to win: 13/8 at Bet365
Draw: 9/4 at Stan James
Real Madrid: 5/2 at Bwin

We all hear about how well Real Madrid are doing, how prolific Cristiano Ronaldo is, and how they are likely going to take the La Liga title from Barcelona. However, Bayern Munich don’t get quite so much attention, but they are equally as strong as the Spaniards. The German side have powered through this season’s Champions League in impressive fashion, and their fantastic home form, coupled with Real Madrid’s dodgy history away to German sides, could cause an upset. Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes will probably see his side miss out on the Bundesliga title to the immense Borussia Dortmund this season, so they will be targeting the Champions League hard. Bayern are one of the great European heavyweights, and after winning a tough group, they breezed past FC Basel and Marseille to set up the semi final clash against Real Madrid. Bayern take a six match winning streak at home in Europe into this fixture, and have won twelve of their last thirteen.

If you like looking to history for your betting options, then Bayern Munich will be favourites. Bayern hold a 10-6 head to head record against Real Madrid out of 18 previous UEFA encounters. Out of four semi final meetings in Europe, Bayern have prevailed on three of those occasions to Real Madrid’s once. So there are positive reasons to back the Germans, and another is striker Mario Gomez, who is one of Europe’s top strikers this season. Gomez is the Champions League’s second highest goalscorer this season, having netted eleven (only behind Lionel Messi with 14). To further back up the claim for a Bayern Munich win, the Germans have only ever lost once at home against Spanish opponents, and their home record stands at W12 D5 L1 against Spaniards. So impressive reading, and overall, in European Cup semi finals, Bayern have won eight and lost five.

But can even the powerful Germans stop the immense juggernaut that is Real Madrid? Jose Mourinho’s men are leading La Liga, and have broken the 100 goal barrier for the season. Cristiano Ronaldo has netted eight times in this year’s Champions League and the y are unbeaten in this year’s competition so far. Real Madrid have scored 32 goals on the road to the semi finals, and their away form this season has been impressive. Mourinho’s men have won four out of five matches, and on top of that, they have conceded just the one goal. So that is the power which Madrid brings to the table, but then you go and look at their away record on German soil and see a big discrepancy. Real Madrid have historically struggled in Germany, winning just one of 22 visits there. In those twenty two matches, Madrid have lost fifteen of those games, so they really don’t like playing over there. Will that be an effect this time around though? Will Jose Mourinho be daunted by such a record? That is the kind of thing he eats up. This is Real Madrid’s 23rd European Cup semi final now, and that have made the final on twelve previous occasions.

Marseille: 12/1 at Boylesports

Well, Bayern Munich have one foot in the door of the Champions League semi final, and with the final of this year’s competition being held on their own turf, there is a lot to like about the Germans. Bayern earned themselves a comfortable 2-0 away win in Marseille in the first leg, and it genuinely looks as if the tie was killed off there after the first 90 minutes Bayern, as expected, have a very strong home record in Europe, and their 7-0 thrashing of FC Basel in the last round in Munich, saw them rack up their 12th win in 13 Champions League home games. They are on a streak of five straight wins there and look a solid bet to make it through to the semi final. They are a very powerful side, and they can battle and grind when it is necessary, as seen in the first leg. So Jupp Heynckes’ side are due a lot of Kudos, and actually look the strongest bet to win the Champions League behind the two Spanish giants. Bayern are a very confident side, and they have the big game experience in the Champions League and they are looking to get back to the semi final stage for the first time since 2009/10. Bayern’s record against French sides at home is W8 D2 L3.

Olympic Marseille, did look a bit overshadowed in the first leg of this quarter final tie, but Didier Deschamps knows that his side have played better away from home in the Champions League this season. They have already beaten a German side twice this campaign, taking out Borussia Dortmund twice in the group stage. Marseille have only lost once away from home in this season’s Champions League, winning two and drawing one in the group stage, and then suffered a late 2-1 loss at Inter Milan in the last round. Marseille, a tough, hard working and physical side, do prove to be a bit of a handful for opponents, and their away form in the Champions League, which has seen them lose just four of 13, is a testament to that. Marseille have also triumphed on the two occasions before where face German opponents in the knock-out stage of Europe. They have also not lost on their last three trips to Germany. So there is some reason to consider looking at Marseille, but they are heavy underdogs in getting through. Maybe on their day they could show up in Germany and grab a draw. However, a mid table team in the French league who haven’t won in their last eight league matches are unlikely to trouble the high flying Germans. Hard to see Marseille getting any kind of look in or making this a contest.

Marseille v Bayern Munich Champions League Betting Odds
Marseille to win: 19/5 at William Hill
Draw: 13/5 at Bwin
Bayern Munich to win: 5/6 at Bet365

Marseille are actually back in the quarter finals of the Champions League for the first time since they won the tournament back in 1993. Marseille have never met Bayern Munich before and a tough task awaits the French outfit, so they need to take full advantage of home advantage here. Marseille’s form has not been great at home this season, losing two in their group stage. You extend that back and Marseille’s form at the Stade Velodrome reads nine losses in their last 18 matches there in Europe. However, they did turn their form around a little bit with a 1-0 win over the disjointed Inter Milan in the round of the last sixteen , to set up their clash with Bayern Munich. The French side will be underdogs in the tie, simply because of the power that the Germans have displayed. However, we can turn out Marseille v Bayern Munich betting attention to their stats against German opposition, and Marseille have prevailed in their last two knock-out trials against German sides. Their overall record against German opposition stands at a healthy W7 D0 L3. So you expect a battling performance from Marseille, who generally look to keep things tight and organised, and they are powerful side physically.

But will that be enough to stop the creativity of Bayern Munich? Bayern have a decent if not spectacular away record in the Champions League, winning six of the last ten. They lost the opening leg of the last sixteen away in Switzerland against FC Basel. They went down 1-0 then, but then firmly made amends with a formidable 7-0 win back in Munich in the second leg. Bayern have looked powerful this season, even though their stars like Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery haven’t been at their best. Bayern Munich’s away record against French sides in Europe stands at W4 D3 L6 so they have not done that well in France. In this year’s Champions League, there was an away defeat at Manchester City, a draw in Napoli and a win against Villarreal in the group stage, before that loss in Switzerland. So there is some margin here for Marseille to at least grab a draw or something out of this. The French side need something to take to Germany with them, because that is where Bayern will be at their best. So a tight encounter is expected in Marseille on Wednesday night, but the overall consensus is that the Germans will get through the tie.

Bayern München Allianz-Arena

Bayern Munich v FC Basel Champions League betting sees one of the great European teams having to come from behind. Bayern were another big name to fall at the hands of FC Basel in this year’s competition, as the Swiss side build up their group stage success over Manchester United. So Bayern Munich now have to come from behind, but they head back to Germany for the second leg, and at home in the Champions League, they are a formidable force. Bayern have rattled off eleven home wins in the Champions League out of their last twelve, and against Swiss sides, Bayern have a 100% record at home. So, while Bayern have a deficit to overcome, they will be heavily backed to make that happen.

The Germans powered through their group, beating out Manchester City, Napoli and Villarreal quite comfortably in the end, and all off the force should come from them. Interestingly though, Bayern have scored one goal less in this season’s champions League than FC Basel, although Bayern have had a great more number of attempts on goal. Since the restart of the Bundesliga after the winter break, Bayern just haven’t struggled a little by their high standards, and they squandered some chances in Switzerland to grab an away goal. But Bayern Munich v FC Basel betting is expected to pan out to a win for the Germans, the talent with the likes of Mario Gomez, Franck Riberty and Bastien Schweinsteiger in their ranks to name but a few, will likely be too much for the Swiss at home.

Bayern Munich v FC Basel Betting
Bayern Munich to win: 1/5 at Bet365
Draw: 5/1 at SkyBet
FC Basel to win: 14/1 at Bet365

While FC Basel achieved two objectives in the first leg, win and don’t concede an away goal, they still face an uphill task to make it through to the quarter finals. It is to their great credit that they are in this position after having come into the tournament as one of the big underdogs. They will have memories of the group stage last season in Bavaria, when they lost 3-0 against Bayern (with Bayern winning in Switzerland as well). There was the fantastic draw at Old Trafford which FC Basel pulled out in the group stage, and then that triumph over the Red Devils in Switzerland to book Basel’s place in the knock-out stages at United’s expense. In seventeen UEFA ties FC Basel have won the first leg and have managed to qualify for the next round on thirteen of those occasion.

On three out of four of those occasions FC Basel had earned a 1-0 lead in the home leg, and had gone on to win the tie. So is there another famous night to come in the Champions League? FC Basel will have seen APOEL breaking unprecedented ground by reaching the quarter finals, and they have the advantage of Velentin Stocker’s last strike from the first leg in their pocket, plus the possibility of away goals. One thing is for sure, is that Bayern will come at them, but can FC Basel again produce a fantastic night on the road? They have the work ethic and the threatening presences of Marco Strellar and Alexander Frei.

Champions League

FC Basel v Bayern Munich Champions League betting sets up an interesting reunion with Bayern Munich for FC Basel coach Heiko Vogel. Vogel was once under the employment of Bayern Munich, and with the two sides coming together in the group stage of last season’s Champions League, there is a nice story surrounding this match. Things didn’t go too well for FC Basel when they met the Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in last year’s competition, as the Swiss side lost both home and away matches in the group stage. However, Basel have been one of the highlights of this year’s edition of the tournament, as they scored a momentous 2-1 victory on Match Day 6 against last year’s defeated finalists Manchester United at St Jakob-Park. Goals from Marco Streller and Alexander Frei gave brilliant Basel a precious 2-1 win, which sent them through to the knockout stage of the Champions League, at the expense of the Red Devils, for only the second time in the Swiss side’s history. It wasn’t just the great win at home over United either, it was the fact that they staged an incredible come back at Old Trafford from 2-0 down, to find themselves winning 3-2, only for United to nab a late equaliser. There was also the fact that they held the attacking powerhouse of creativity, Benfica to a draw in Portugal as well. So don’t think for one moment that FC Basel were a one hit wonder in that Match Day six triumph. That was the culmination of a lot of hard work setting themselves up for that position. That was just the cherry on top for the Swiss side. FC Basel are the major force in Swiss domestic football at the moment, and are six points clear at the top of the league with a game in hand over Young Boys. FC Basel have great attacking experience with ex Borussia-Dortmund man Alexander Frei, who can really trouble defences, and the support from Marco Stellar has been impressive. FC Basel are on an unbeaten run of 14 matches in the league now and will be confident of giving European giants Bayern Munich a run for their money. However, Basel’s home form against German sides reads as four loses from five matches.

Last season, a late goal from Bayern’s Bastien Schweinsteiger completed a turnaround for the Bundesliga club, after an opening goal by Alexander Frei for FC Basel at the St Jakob-Park. While Bayern narrowly escaped Switzerland with a win there, it was much more comfortable going for them back in Germany, as they triumphed 3-0 in Munich, sending FC Basel out of the competition. That was the first time that the two sides had met in UEFA competition, and while Bayern Munich will be strong favourites to progress through to the quarter finals after this tie, they will have seen what FC Basel did to Manchester United and have a certain air of caution. Bayern topped their group ahead of Napoli and Manchester City, playing some powerful, clinical football along the way. They won four of their six matches, suffering just one defeat against Manchester City, when they had already secured top spot anyway. Bayern are in decent away form in Europe as well, winning six of their last nine matches on the road, so you can definitely see where the balance of power is in FC Basel v Bayern Munich Champions League betting. Bayern are still in the hunt for the Bundesliga title, in a fierce contest there, and they go into the match against FC Basel on the back of a draw on the weekend away at Freiburg. Still, the four times European Cup winners are the ones with all of the experience in this match, the ones with the stars, and Bastien Schweinsteiger, has scored now on his last three visits to St Jakob-Park (on one occasion for Bayern, and on two occasions for Germany) so he could be well worth looking at in your FC Basel v Bayern Munich Champions League First Goalscorer betting. The bookies are expecting the attacking power of Bayern Munich to power through this game, but FC Basel will battle to the end, but keeping Bayern off the score sheet is going to be tough.

Online bookmaker Bet356 offer a free £200 bet for new customers registering an account. The bookie will match the value of your first deposit on a new account, with a 100% bonus.

Champions League

Manchester City v Bayern Munich Champions League betting sees the Premier League leaders face their final chance to get through to the knockout stage at the first attempt. A crucial defeat away at Napoli on Match Day Five has left City’s Champions League life line hanging by a thread. It has not been an easy ride for City adjusting to the Champions League, and while they were handed one of the most difficult draws possible, there is just a thin sliver of hope left for them to qualify. City need to win to start with and nothing else than that will do for them. It means that even a draw for City would not be good enough under any circumstances and even if they manage to get the better of the Germans, they would still need Napoli to fail to win. So the only thing that City can do now is go for broke at home against the strong Bayern Munich. When the two sides met on Match Day Two, City were totally outplayed away from home, and Bayern strolled to a 2-0 victory. It is not as if City’s home form has been that much to write home about either, because they could only muster a disappointing draw with Napoli, before a late Sergio Aguero winner managed to take all three points off Spaniards Villarreal when they visited. So form would suggest that things aren’t going to go Manchester City’s way on Wednesday night either in the Champions League, as Bayern Munich remain unbeaten in the group so far. It is a tall ask for City, and even if they crown their night with an important win, the other fixture is not in their favour either, as Napoli are expected to beat bottom side Villarreal.

So what are City’s chances? Well they are on a 14 match unbeaten home run in European competition, which should put them in good stead, but the experience which they will bring to the table, pales in comparison to that of Bayern Munich in the Champions League. The strong Germans have a great defence, and although their form has dipped just a little bit in the Bundesliga, they are still top are still very mean at the back. City found that out when they faced them in group, so Roberto Mancini’s men need to find a bit more craft and guile, and turn on the after burners which they have done so often in the Premier League this season. Bayern have won six of their last eight away games in the Champions League and are clearly going to be no pushovers. The fact that they have won the group already, may afford them the opportunity to rest some players, but they will still be a handful whatever they do with their line up. Bayern’s last trip to face an English side was that incredible 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford in the 2009/10 Champions League quarter finals, which saw them eliminate United due to those away goals, in a fantastic game. However, it is worth noting for your Manchester City v Bayern Munich Champions League betting, that the Germans don’t have a great record in England. They have a W2 D7 L5 record in England and they have lost their last three straight away to English sides. So can City capitalise on that poor record and grab the victory that may just keep them in this?

City have just not looked as convincing in the Champions League as they have done on the domestic front. They certainly have not been as tight at the back, and the chances up front are not as free flowing. It is why the Champions League title is so coveted, because it is a tough adjustment to make in terms of football style. At the end of the day, whether they survive until the new year in the Champions League or not, may not ultimately be in Man City’s own hands. All they can do is win, and hope. But while there is hope, anything can happen and Man City have to be ready to launch a big assault on the German’s back line. It will be a remarkable life line if they can take it.
