Bayern Munich will be very happy with the Champions League draw since they could have had a much harder game after finishing second in their group. The German champions drew Besiktas from Turkey and these two teams will face in the first leg at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
This will be a very tough game from Besiktas since playing at Munich is always a very hard task. The home crowd is very vocal and that is something that the Turkish side will need to deal with. Not losing badly is important for Besiktas since they want to stay in the tie heading to their home leg in a few weeks. This side has a very strong defense with the likes of Pepe in the side. It will be up to the defensive unit to ensure that this is a close game.
On the other side of the coin, Bayern Munich will hope that they can have a big win and use that win to kill the tie at home. Bayern have an amazing home record and I think they will fancy themselves of winning big in this game. It is hard to bet against Bayern Munich at home since they are very strong and I think they will win at home.
As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good enough price on bet on Bayern Munich to win outright and as a result that is an option which we should avoid. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals since I think Bayern will score three goals on their own. This seems like a safe bet so any stake size is understandable.
