Bayern Munich vs Celtic
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 18th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich have been going through a turbulent period ever since the second round catastrophe at Parc des Princes (3-0 loss to PSG).
However, signs of better days could be seen on Saturday when the Bavarian giants bagged as many as five past Freiburg on Josef Heynckes’ debut on the bench.
Der FCB narrowed the gap to Borussia Dortmund to only two points at the top of the Bundesliga standings after BVB dropped points in the last weekend’s home failure to RB Leipzig.
The battle for the top spot in the Champions League’s group might be lost with a demolishing defeat to PSG, but thing could get really complicated for the Bavarians in case of a potential failure against Celtic at Allianz Arena.
The Hoops produced a phenomenal display in a demolishing 0-3 win over Anderlecht (goals from Leigh Griffiths, Patrick Roberts and Scott Sinclair) which practically brought them on the brink of securing the third place in the group.
It’s hard to believe Brendan Rodgers’ men are capable of more against such a strong opposition, and given their poor defensive display in the home encounter with Hibernian (2-2 draw) before the international break, we’re not quite confident about their chances of an upset at Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich vs Celtic: Head to head
This will only be the third head to head encounter between the two sides.
The Hoops did offer quite a strong resistance losing narrowly 2-1 at Allianz Arena and holding the Bavarians to a goalless draw in the group phase of the 2003/2004 campaign when the teams met each other previously.
Bayern Munich vs Celtic: Prediction
Bayern received a new energy under Jupp Heynckes and we believe this is going to be yet another pleasant evening for the home team fans.
Arjen Robben was pretty inspired in the Ditch national team shirt a week ago and we see the value in backing the experienced winger top score anytime against Celtic at 8/11 odds.
Bayern Munich vs Celtic: Bet Tips
- The main betting option is Bayern Munich -2.5 handicap at the odds of 1.75
- You can have Arjen Robben to score anytime at the odds of 1.76.
