Prediction and odds for the game: Bayern Munich (2/5) v Tottenham (11/2)
We are backing over 3.5 goals scored at odds of 10/11
When: Wednesday 11th December 2019, kick-off 8 PM
Where: Allianz Arena
On Wednesday night, Bayern Munich host Tottenham at the Allianz Arena in a potentially fascinating game in Group B of the Champions League.
The German champions head into this encounter on the back of a massive 2-1 defeat at league leaders Monchengladbach, which leaves the Bavarians seven points behind the Foals in the race for the German top-flight title.
The defeat means Bayern have now lost their last two league games. However, it has been a far different story in the Champions League, as Die Bayern have won all five of their games in Group B, including recording an extraordinary 7-2 win in the reverse fixture. Bayern are already through to the knockout stages as group winners.
The German giants have also been prolific in the group so far scoring at least two goals in all five of their wins.
Bayern have a strong recent home record in the Champions League, winning four of their last five games in the competition, while also scoring at least two goals in each victory.
Much has changed Spurs suffered the humiliating home loss in the reverse fixture. The main difference is that Jose Mourinho has replaced Mauricio Pochettino and changed the whole atmosphere at the club. The former United boss has now won four of his first five games in charge of the north London side, including a 5-0 win over Burnley last time out.
Like Bayern, Tottenham already qualified for the knockout stages of the competition. Therefore, there is little riding on this game, except maybe a chance to regain some pride from the first leg.
The visitors recent Champions League record is very strong, as they have recorded three straight wins in Europe’s elite competition, scoring at least twice in all three victories. Prior to the trio of wins, Spurs had failed to win in three Champions League games.
Tottenham an inconsistent recent away record in this competition. However, the team from north London have suffered just one defeat in their last seven matches on their travels in the Champions League.
Media reports suggest that Tottenham will field a weakened team, with star striker Harry Kane reportedly remaining in the English capital. No doubt, this will decrease the visitor’s chances of picking up a result in Munich.
Although this game means very little in the context of qualification, Bayern will be desperate to get back to winning ways after the two straight league defeats. With Spurs fielding a weakened team, we expect the German team to come out on top.
We are also backing over 3.5 goals to be scored in this clash, as both teams tend to be involved in high-scoring games at home and abroad.
Verdict: Back over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 10/11 and/or the home win at odds of 2/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
