Bayern Munich Prediction – Can Bayern Munich assert authority?

With a 1-1 draw away at RB Leipzig on the weekend, Bayern Munich extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 5 matches which includes a 3-1 win at Energie Cottbus in the German DFB Pokal and back-to-back wins in the Bundesliga against Schalke and Mainz, so the hosts will be in a confident frame of mind ahead of their Champions League opening group match against Crvena Zvezda.

The hosts have also won 10 of their last 11 matches at their Allianz Arena in all competitions, but results at home in the Champions League have seen a definite decline in the German champions’ fortunes in recent times.

Bayern Munich have won just 3 of their last 7 home ties in this competition which were victories over Besiktas, AEK Athens and Benfica, while defeats to Real Madrid and Liverpool along with being held to draws by Sevilla and Ajax seem to underline this.

Incidentally, the hosts have managed to beat the -3.5 asian handicap line in just 2 of their last 11 home ties in the Champions League, Crvena Zvezda seem to have a decent chance of avoiding a real hiding here.

Crvena Zvezda Prediction – Can Crvena Zvezda keep it close?

Wednesday night’s visitors, Crvena Zvezda, also bring a decent looking unbeaten run into this opening Group B clash against Bayern Munich as they’ve put together an 8-match sequence without defeat in all competitions.

Within this solid run of results, Crvena Zvezda have seen off the likes of Copenhagen (on penalties) in the 3rd qualifying round and a play-off victory against Young Boys (3-3) by the virtue of the away-goal rule following their 2-2 draw away in Switzerland, in the latter qualifying rounds of the Champions League.

Indeed, Crvena Zvezda have progressed from the 1st qualifying round thanks to an aggregate 2-1 win over Lithuanian club, Suduva, and a 2nd qualifying round win over Finland outfit HJK Helsinki 3-2 on aggregate.

These results show that Crvena Zvezda know how to grind out and scrap for results, while the visitors have been beaten by 4 goals or more away from home in the Champions League in just 2 of their last 17 away ties in the competition.

Crvena Zvezda also possess a goal threat of their own in the shape of forward Pavkov (4 goals).
