The match is over.
Last year’s finalists Tottenham look a side a little bereft of confidence after a few questionable results this season which leaves Bayern with an opportunity to head back across the channel with three-points in the bag.
Backing Bayern to win and both teams to score is a great way to get value with popular sportsbook in the match result market. Only once this season in the Bundesliga have Bayern scored fewer than two times in a game whilst Spurs have still managed 11 goals in the Premier League despite their woes. Defence is an issue though for Tottenham which leads us to backing Bayern to edge this one with goals at both ends of the pitch.
As mentioned above, goals have not been too much of an issue for either side this season with both troubling the oppositions net more often than not. That should make for an end to end tie, especially with the likes of Harry Kane on the pitch. To highlight this further, Bayern have scored 12 goals in their last four games (an average of three per game) which means Tottenham only need to score once to make over three goals in the game a winning bet.
One thing we can say about Tottenham is that they have often gotten out of the starting blocks quickly. Having scored the opening goal in four of their last five games in all competitions prior to the weekend is proof of that. However, that is as good as it has got as in three of those games the opposition has been the last scoring team and either gone on to snatch a draw or win the game outright.
Head to Head
The pair have not met since the third round of the 1983 UEFA Cup. Bayern won the first leg 1-0 on home soil before Spurs won the second leg 2-0 at White Hart Lane in a season that Tottenham would go on to lift the trophy. Four times the pair have played each other in total in competitive action with Spurs winning one, Bayern twice and a single draw.
Bayern Munich to win
Bayern come into the game as slight favourites with online betting sites and that is more than justified. The German heavyweights have won four of their last five trips to London. Tottenham will be no pushovers and did beat Bayern in preseason in the Audi Cup, but only two wins in their eight games in all competitions this season at the time of writing has left many questioning if there are some rumbles of discontent behind the scenes.
