Bayern Munich vs Anderlecht
UEFA Champions League Group-stage – Season 2017/18
Date: Tuesday, 12th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
UEFA Champions League’s and Europa League’s quarter-finalists will measure their forces in the first round of group B where PSG and Bayern are the favorites to proceed further.
At the first look The Bavarians seem to be clear favorites of the clash, but the German club is not in the best shape. They come after losing the first championship match with 2-0 at Hoffenheim where Bayern failed to score with Muller, Lewandowski and Coman in the front third.
Of course, the defeat in the championship looks like a simple mistake for “FC Hollywood” while their single match played on Allianz Arena this season was a no problem 3-1 victory against Leverkusen.
FCB had an outstanding streak of 16 home wins in a row in UCL. That was before the 1-2 loss against Real Madrid in UCL 2017/18 quarter-finals.
The Purple and Whites are having a poor start of the season as they stand on the 10th place of the Belgian Jupiler League with only 2 victories in their 6 matches so far.
Anderlecht failed to score in their 3 away matches this season. It is hard to see them touching the net against The Bavarians who are much more powerful than anyone in the Belgian first league.
Anderlecht confidence will only be boosted by the fact that they haven’t been defeated in their last 2 matches.
Bayern Munich vs Anderlecht: Head to Head
The only head to head tie that deserves a look is the one in Europa League’s 2007/2008 season. The tie took place in the 1/8 finals and ended with a crushing 6-2 aggregate for the Germans. The Bavarians concluded the tie right from the first leg which was played in Brussels and won by FCB with 0-5.
Bayern Munich vs Anderlecht: Prediction
Bayern Munich will be eager to revenge their Bundesliga stumble against Hoffenheim and Anderlecht are on the cards for a crushing defeat.
Anderlecht poor away form and the departure of their fabulous midfielder, Youri Tielemans, will make this match an impossible mission for the Purple and Whites.
With the above being said, the best advice for this match is to back on the Belgians’ weak offense.
