Bayern vs Liverpool: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Liverpool travel to Munich knowing a goal will swing this tie in their favour – but can Bayern finish off the job at the Allianz Arena?
Bayern Munich went to Anfield with a game plan in mind and must have came away very satisfied with an evening’s work that didn’t go the way that the betting sites predicted. An away goal would have been a bonus but the German side will feel confident that they can now use home advantage to progress to the quarter finals.
Jurgen Klopp seemed frustrated that Bayern Munich didn’t come to play at Anfield but he must realise that Niko Kovac’s side will probably undertake a different set of instructions in the second leg. With the score at 0-0 this tie could go either way, but with Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, Liverpool will always have a chance of scoring the goals they need.
Bayern have won twice in the Bundesliga since the first leg at Liverpool – with the 5-1 demolition of Borussia Monchengladbach particularly impressive. Robert Lewandowski scored twice in that game – including a last minute penalty – to take his tally up to 27 for the season in all competitions and must be a favourite with the bookies to score in this one.
Liverpool have drawn two and won one since the 0-0 draw at Anfield and have been fielding accusations of feeling the pressure. The two goalless draws were against Manchester United and Everton away however, so there is hardly a crisis at the club. This could go either way but Bayern could win this 2-1 at home.
- Bayern Munich to win at 23/20
Bettors need to take into consideration that a home win needs to be within the 90 minutes and that extra time does not count. But Bayern will be full of confidence at home and should get the win they need. Unibet are offering 23/20 on a Bayern win.
- Robert Lewandowski to score at any time at 11/10
There are longer odds available for the Poland international to be the first goal scorer of the night but for a safer bet 888Sport are offering 11/10 for Robert Lewandowski to score at any time – and that seems like good value.
