Typically, we shouldn’t have to say a lot about the replay of a game in which a team won by 4 goals to 1. PSV Eindhoven will do everything in their power to prove us wrong, and they will use their great defensive record at home to try to keep Bayern at bay. Will they manage to do so?
PSV Eindhoven vs Bayern Munchen – 01/11/2016
Betting Odds: Eindhoven 9.50 or 17/2 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Bayern 1.36 or 4/11
It’s hard to imagine that a team will try to defend and play counter-attacking football in front of their own fans, but that’s exactly what PSV will try to do. They don’t have the strength of last season (or seasons) and are struggling nowadays as well.
They seem to be behind Ajax or Feyenoord in terms of quality and are nervous they can even lose 3rd place in the CL group to Russian debutants FK Rostov.
A point (or points) against Bayern would be golden, but they don’t seem to be able to produce the kind of football required to gain such a result.
On the other hand, Bayern is recovering beautifully after a sketchy start. Ancelotti taught the team to play direct, offensive football in a new 4-3-3 formation, with Robben and Douglas Costa supporting Lewandowski.
This new tactic led to win after win after win, and it’s been a while since Bayern failed to score in a game (against Atletico, in September, to be precise).
Their offense should put at least a goal or two in PSV’s net, and this advantage should be too tough to overcome for the Dutch side.
Eindhoven vs Bayern Munchen Betting Tips
So, to put it simply: Bayern to score at least twice, Bayern to win, Lewandowski to score. These are the clearest ideas we have for the game, but really, there’s no need to complicate things in this round of the Champions League.
With a win, Bayern will come closer to qualifying for the knock-out rounds, and PSV will wait for the duel against Rostov to see if they will play in the Europa League next spring.
Bayern Munchen Win & Both Teams To Score – Yes: 2.60 or 8/5
1st Goalscorer – Robert Lewandowski: 3.65 or 53/20
Champions League Predictions And Betting Tips
Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize? Porto vs Leicester City – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Porto 1.35 or 7/20 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Leicester City 11.00 or 10/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.25 or 5/4 No 1.57 or 4/7 Porto can qualify in only…
Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough? Tottenham vs CSKA Mosow – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Tottenham 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 CSKA Moscow 7.00 or 6/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.95 or 19/20 No 1.80 or 4/5 Actually, the Spurs have a few advantages on their…
Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it? Juventus vs Dinamo Zagreb – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Juventus 1.12 or 1/8 Draw 10.00 or 9/1 Dinamo 26.00 or 25/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9 Our analysis tells us that Juventus should…
The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well. Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group. Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20 Monaco is one…
