The early kick off on Tuesday see's one of the favourites for the Champions League Bayern Munich travel to Russia to take on a CSKA team that took a hammering in week one, Bayern scrapped a last minute win against Manchester City in Munich in week one and will be hoping for a more convincing win here. Pep Guardiola has an array of star at his disposal although he will probably be missing Ribery and Robben who are both carrying injuries. With Lewandowski and Muller up front though and Alonso and Schweinsteiger in the middle I think that there is more than enough fire power on display for Bayern Munich to get a win here in Russia. At 1/3 though there is not much value in that bet.
On the othe side CSKA have been banging in the goals themselves and with Doumbia, Erenko and Natcho smashing in the goals (fifteen between the three of them) I think that CSKA will not just sit back here. After a 5-1 loss against Roma in the opening game the Russians will be looking for a much better outing here , especially at home. Manager Slutsky knows his side is drawn in one of the toughest groups possible but also knows that the only way for his team to get through is to pick up points at home and I think he will send his team out to try to win this one and not to sit back against Bayern.
With little value in the straight up play and a few doubts in my mind about the handicap bet I am taking the overs here, I think that Bayern have too much firepower to not win but I do think that CSKA can get on the scoresheet, if that happens then I think the overs comes in easy.
