Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich Semi-Final Second Leg Betting Preview
Real Madrid and Bayern Munich Preview and Predictions
Date: May 1st, 2018
Bayern Munich’s Champions League campaign is hanging in the balance following a 2-1 defeat at the Allianz Arena on April 25th. The Bundesliga side need to win at the Bernabeu during the second leg, which is no easy task. They are priced as outsiders but our predictions suggest that they stand a decent chance of victory in the Spanish capital.
888Sport have priced up Real Madrid as the 21/20 favourites for this second leg and Zinedine Zidane will be hoping his side can get an early goal and ease the nerves of the home fans. Bayern were unlucky with injuries throughout the first leg, losing Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng during the first half and they will be hoping for better luck this time around. Jupp Heynckes is likely to rest a few players ahead of this match and his side are available at 40/17. The draw can be backed at 37/13.
The Bundesliga side managed to keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet throughout the first leg and the Portuguese star will be hoping to make more of an impact at the Bernabeu. He is available at 17/5 to net the opener. Robert Lewandowski was another player who made very little impact against Real Madrid with the Polish striker priced at 5/1 to score the first goal of the game here.
A low-scoring game is a real possibility here and Under 2.5 Goals is available at 2/1. Neither side will want to give much away in the early stages of this contest.
Real Madrid Remain Tournament Favourites
Real Madrid’s substantial experience in this competition has led them to be installed as 11/10 favourites for the Champions League title. The Spanish side are hoping to make it three successive UCL triumphs and after taking a 2-1 lead against Bayern, they are in the driving seat.
The German outfit are third favourites and are priced at 7/1 but haven’t reached the final for five years. Jupp Heynckes was also in charge when Bayern last clinched the treble back in 2013.
