Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 1 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano.
The Bavarians have already ensured that they will finish the initial stage of the competition as group champions, and they have done it with two match-days to spare.
Such has been their dominance that they have so far maintained a 100% winning record in the tournament, while the rest of the three teams have so far scraped together a total of one win.
Going on, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men have scored the most number of goals so far in Group A (almost four times that of Diego Simeone’s men), and have conceded the least as well.
They also will be eager to keep their momentum going on, despite ensuring progression. Moreover, it’s not really Flick’s style to take the foot off the gas once he achieves what he had set out to do. He would not allow his players to relax until the final nail is thrust into the opponents’ coffin.
Loc Colchoneros, for whom a win is almost a must, are under immense pressure, and are the underdogs in this match-up.
Expect Bayern Munich to dominate proceedings this Tuesday at the Wanda.

Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Simeone’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day, by Lokomotiv Moscow. In the meantime, Flick’s men recorded a 3-1 win at home against Salzburg.
Going on, the Bavarians are on a 13-game unbeaten run (12 of which were wins), and they were unbeaten in 42 of their last 43 fixtures as well. Impressively, 41 of these were wins too, and they had scored a total of 101 goals from their preceding 31 match-ups.
They had also defeated this same opponent 4-0 in the reverse fixture, and have had great success in recent years against Spanish teams in general.
On the other hand, their counterparts have had a total of one win in the CL so far this season, and have scored the least number of goals so far in the group. Do also note that their sole win had come against the dead-last placed Salzburg.
Taking these observations into account, expect Bayern Munich to be the better team on the pitch this game week.
