Bayern Munich News and Form – Will Bayern rout the visiting Red Star?

Only Barcelona and Real Madrid have made more group stage appearances in the Champions League than Bayern Munich have done. This will be the 23rd appearance by the Germans. They have won their group in 15 of their previous 22 campaigns, including topping their section over Ajax, Benfica and AEK Athens last season. In total, the Bavarians earned 14 points in the group stage. They crashed out of the round of sixteen though because of a 3-1 home loss in the second leg of their tie against Liverpool, following a 0-0 draw at Anfield.

Bayern have some current record behind them in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. They have taken a W14 D1 record in their last fifteen such matches. The last time that they suffered a defeat in Munich in a group stage home game was against Manchester City back in 2013. That having been said though if you count knockout stage fixtures too, Bayern are just W2 D2 L2 in their last six home games in European action. Bayern have won three of their four previous home games against Serbian opposition.

Red Star Belgrade News and Form – Can Red Star hold out against Bayern?

Red Star Belgrade will know that they are not in for an easy campaign again. They reached the group stage last season after having started in the first qualifying round. The Serbians didn’t get any further than that though. But they did become the first Serbian team ever to win a home game in the UEFA Champions League. That came courtesy of a shock 2-0 success over eventual winners Liverpool. They had some troubles defensively on the road though.

They lost all three away games; 6-1 against PSG, 4-0 against Liverpool and 3-1 against Napoli. Just as they had done last season, this season’s campaign started in the first qualifying round and they had some tight squeezes along the way. They only got past FC Copenhagen via a penalty shoot-out and then in the playoff round, it was an away goal success to get the better of Young Boys. Red Star Belgrade have won 3 of their last 16 European games (D8 L5). They are D4 L4 in their last eight European away games. Red Star’s record in Germany is W4 L11.
