Bayern Munich Prediction

Bayern Munich perhaps hold the slight edge in this clash with Liverpool as the German powerhouse now hold home advantage at their Allianz Arena where they’ve captured seven wins on the trot on home turf in all competitions which include some impressive victories.

Convincing wins in the Bundesliga over Nurnberg 3-0, Stuttgart 4-1, Schalke 3-1 and Wolfsburg 6-0 along with a crushing 5-1 victory over Portuguese club, Benfica, make the hosts a free-scoring goal-machine which needs to be seriously respected here.

The Germans have lost just once in their last nine home ties in the Champions League, which was a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid, but the goals have fairly flowed at the Allianz Arena in recent times as 14 of their last 19 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

Goalscoring midfielders Gnabry (7 goals) and Goretzka (6 goals) along with prolific marksman Lewandowski (17 goals) being ably assisted by Ribery (4 goals) provide the cutting edge for Bayern Munich as they look to blitz Liverpool off the park in this tie.


Key-Facts – Bayern Munich v Liverpool

  • 14 of Bayern Munich’s last 19 home ties have seen over 2.5 goals scored
  • Bayern Munich have lost just 1 of their last 9 home ties in the Champions League
  • 9 of Liverpool’s last 12 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals


Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool head into this crucial 2nd leg with an unbeaten 10-match sequence under their belts in all competitions, but this may perhaps be a little misleading in terms of their overall chances of recording what would be a memorable victory in German over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

The Reds have captured five wins but have also been held to five draws within this recent 10-match sequence, with four of these five wins being recorded at Anfield. Wins over Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Watford and Burnley have kept them in the race for the domestic league title, but their recent results away from home in this step up in competition have seen Liverpool fail miserably.

The merseysiders have lost their last five away ties on the trot in the Champions League with defeats at Roma, Real Madrid, Napoli, Crvena Zvezda and PSG. Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp’s side have contributed to the goals tally with 9 of their last 12 away matches resulting in over 2.5 goals.

The likes of Salah (17 goals), Firmino (11 goals) and Mane (16 goals) should ensure Liverpool hit the back of the net again in this 2nd leg.

Betting Tips Verdict

This is a tough one to call in terms of picking a straight win, but we should see some goals in what should be an entertaining 2nd leg.
