|Date & Time||Tuesday February 19, 2019, 4:00 PM (EST)|
The Line: Liverpool +105/Draw +280/Bayern +260, Over/Under:
In the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich will travel to Anfield where they will face Liverpool.
Bayern Munich enter this match in exceptional form as the team has won its last 9 games. Over the weekend, Bayern Munich won 3-2 against Augsburg away from home. It was a dominating performance by Bayern Munich as the team controlled 72% of the ball while completing close to 700 passes at a pass accuracy level of 89%. Kingsley Coman was in terrific form for Bayern Munich as the French winger scored twice to secure the victory. This is going to be an extremely tough match for Bayern Munich as travelling to Anfield has recently become one of the most difficult matches in world football.
Liverpool have been playing extremely well this season and remain top of the Premier League ladder. In their previous outing, Liverpool beat Bournemouth at home 3-0. It was a simple match for the Reds as Sadio Mane and Mo Salah both scored for the team. Liverpool controlled over 60% of the possession and had 20 shots during the outing. This is a very important week for Liverpool as they are to play Manchester United over the weekend. With much at stake, Liverpool will hope to begin their week with a win at home.
Liverpool and Bayern Munich last played in 2001 where the Reds won by a score of 3-2. It has been over a decade since Liverpool’s win so not much should be taken from the fact.
Looking at this fixture, I am going to pick Liverpool to win this match. Both Bayern Munich and Liverpool are very strong teams but with this match being played at Anfield, I see the Reds being too strong for their German opponents. I am picking Liverpool to begin the tie with a win at home.
