As Bayern Munich have a Champions League game on Tuesday Hamburg may just get an unexpected break and not face a full strength Munich team in the Allianz Arena. Arjen Robben is the key man for Munich this season having netted twelve goals already this season, Guardiola may rest some of his stars with a tough game away against Shakhtar on Tuesday but this is such a strong Bayern squad that most of the reserve players are full internationals. Bayern also have a healthy lead at the top of the Bundesliga so Guardiola wouldnt necessarily be worries about dropping a couple of points here.
Hamburg had an awful start to the season, the team was looking like a team destined for relegation and with little hope. Rafael Van Der Vaart is the key man for Hamburg and the dutch midfielder is the creator of most of what Hamburg do well. Having signed former Bayern Munich striker Olic from Wolfsburg during the january transfer window Hamburg will be hoping to get more goals from their strikers. Van Der Vaart is top scorer for the team with four goals and this is obviously a problem for the team.
While Bayern may win this and probably will the prices are such that there is far more value in taking the underdogs. I am going to take Hamburg +1.5 first half goals on the handicap. I think that while Bayern may end up with a victory it will be tough and Hamburg with a goal and a half headstart for the first half is too much.
