We have reached the business end of the group stage as the 5th day of the Champions League comes into the picture. Two of the table toppers from Group A, Bayern Munich and Copenhagen will come face to face on Thursday at Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich is leading the Group A table with 4 consecutive wins and would like to continue the momentum. They have already qualified for the next round.
Copenhagen has shown some major signs of struggles in Group A as they have just won a single fixture and have two losses to their names. The top bookmakers in India have amazing Champions League odds with them.
Bayern Munich has scored an average of 3.8 goals in the last 5 fixtures and we expect them to continue the same form.
The betting tip is...
Bayern Munich to score 2.5+ goals
Bayern is flying in the ongoing season of the European Competition. With an average possession of 61.76%, Bayern has displayed a calm and composed style of play.
They have punished the opposition at every chance the club has got. Out of 18.29 shots, Bayern has 7.94 shots on target with an average of 3.22 goals in the season.
Bayern’s weakness lies in their defence as the club has no clean sheets yet. Thomas Tuchel has failed to make any improvements in the defence department but has been effective with the Club’s attack. At home, Bayern is carrying an 83.33% win record with a single draw.
Harry Kane has been the riding force for Bayern as he has 21 goals & 7 assists this season. Kane has already set up the standards high for the team.
Matthijs de Ligt, Tarek Buchmann and Gabriel Marusic are in the injury room and won’t be part of the Champions League fixture.
Predicted Lineup: Neuer, Mazraoui, Upamecano, Min-Jae, Davies, Laimer, Goretzka, Coman, Musiala, Sane, Kane
Bayern's counterparts from Denmark, Byens Hold have displayed a below-average performance in the Champions League. They are at the top of the Superliga but have not been at their best and have failed in the European competition.
With an average of 53.28% of possession, Copenhagen has just 5.83 shots on target this season. However, Copenhagen has scored in 85.19% of fixtures and that can work for them at the Allianz Arena.
With no clean sheet in the ongoing season, Copenhagen’s defence has failed to impress and they might fail again against Bayern’s deadly attack.
Diogo Goncalves will be in the spotlight for the club as he has 8 goals and 6 assists on his name with Orri Óskarsson also having 8 goals and 4 assists this season.
Diogo Goncalves will be expected to play an important role for the club against Bayern.
Predicted Lineup: Kamil Grabara, Elias Jelert, Denis Vavro, Kevin Diks, Christian Soerensen, Lukas Lerager, Rasmus Falk, Diogo Goncalves, Roony Bardghji, Viktor Claesson, Elias Achouri
Copenhagen has shown its struggles when it comes to the Champions League. They have scored a single win and have struggled to score goals.
Bayern Munich have registered 4 wins and are dominating the point table and will be confident to continue the same. We predict a win for Bayern Munich on Thursday in the 2nd leg against Copenhagen.
