Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview – UEFA Champions League 6th December
A huge match up but it is a dead rubber with the two having assured themselves of making it through to the next round of the competition. Atletico have the chance to finish things off in style by winning all six group stage matches if they can get the better of the Bavarians again. As for Bayern they will want to land some revenge at least in this one even though they have conceded top spot to the Spaniards already in the group and will be following them through in second place. Can Atletico become just the seventh team to win all of their group stage matches in the history of the tournament?

Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips
Nothing to play for in terms of positions in the group as both of these will be going through and it is Madrid in top spot. Bayern Munich pretty much conceded top spot to the Spaniards on match day five when they suffered a shock defeat out at Rostov, the Germans going down 3/2. That was their second loss in the group after having lost at the Calderon against Atletico Madrid on match day two. So the group is settled but Bayern Munich have something to play for. They already hold a competition record for the most consecutive home wins (14 when they beat PSV Eindhoven on match day three) and they will be looking to push that particular boat out even further in gaining some revenge over Atletico Madrid when they meet up again with them on Tuesday night. Bayern won their only other home game against Atletico in the competition and all of the previous three between these have ended in a home win.
Bayern Munich hold a home record of W17 D5 L2 against Spanish clubs; overall against Spanish clubs it is P52 W24 D12 L16. So they are on that big winning streak at home in the UEFA Champions League and have lost at home since April 2014 in the semi finals against Real Madrid. There are some important numbers to look at here in that sequence, because in those 14 games they have 52 goals and have shipped just the eight. So they taking some stopping on home soil, but if there is any side who can grind out a result, it is Atletico Madrid. You can take a price of 13/8 on Bayern Munich to win to nil in this one as well as the game to go under 2.5 goals at bookmaker Bet365. Under the goal line can be taken at a price of 5/6 as well. Running in the anytime goalscorer market is Robert Lewandowski who is a 10/11 favourite with Thomas Muller at 13/8 and Arjen Robben at 7/4 as options.
Up for Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann is a 5/2 anytime goalscorer at Bet365. So can Atletico become just the seventh team to win all of their group stage matches in the competition? So far away from home this season, they have banked 1-0 victories at PSV Eindhoven and Rostov and an Atletico 1-0 correct score in this one, as it was in the first meeting against Bayern in the group, will return you a price of 12/1 with Bet365. The Spaniards don’t have form in Germany though as they have lost on their last two visits to Germany and overall their record there is W18 D6 L13. The last time that Atletico won in Germany was back in the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League when they beat Hannover. Five times Atletico have gone up against Bayern Munich in competitive action and have never scored more than one goal in a match against them. So can they take advantage of Bayern’s defensive form of just one clean sheet in their last 16 Champions League home games against Spanish sides. Atletico have conceded just the one goal in their five group stage games this season.

Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid Predictions
This is most likely going to be a pretty tight match up as the previous ones have been. Atletico are superbly efficient at grinding out 1-0 victories as well have seen again this season but this is going to be a big ask for them. Bayern are formidable on home soil and that should just tip the balance in their favourite, particularly with them out looking for some revenge too. Look for a game under 2.5 goals and perhaps a Bayern 1-0 correct score has some appeal.
