Bayern Munich vs Hamburger SV
Date: Saturday, 25th February 2017
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena, Munich.
Hamburger’s impressive streak will be on a serious test this weekend as they travel to Munich to play the reigning champions and the current Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena.
Despite of the slip up in the capital last weekend, Bayern Munich are still five points clear at the top. Hardly-fought draw at Olympiastadion thus ended the three-win streak for Carlo Ancelotti and his men.
It was the team’s leadings scorer Robert Lewandowski who packed an equalizer six minutes in the stoppage time to save a point for the Bavarians. It was the 16th goal in the season for the Polish striker who is the most likely option for anytime goal-scorer pick.
Bayern won six out of last seven games at Allianz Arena netting as many as five in the drubbing of Arsenal in Champions League.
Everything seemed lost for Hamburger SV after the first part of the season. However, Markus Gisdol managed to motivate his lads to improve their performances significantly.
HSV had three wins on the bounce before the last weekend’s home draw with Freiburg 2-2. The attack finally seems to be working since the team bagged at least two goals in each of their last three fixtures in all competitions.
Bayern Munich vs Hamburger SV: Head to head
The two sides will take on each other for the 108th time in history. The Bavarians have been much more successful winning 65 encounters.
Bayern Munich were brutal in 2015 demolishing HSV by 13 goals difference in two games. The last encounter saw FCB claiming the 5th consecutive victory over HSV. Joshua Kimmich was the one who made the difference netting the only goal of the game two minutes from time.
Bayern Munich vs Hamburger SV: Predictions
Bayern Munich are 1/8 favourites to win the match according to the bookmakers. There is obviously no value in backing the home win at such a low odds, especially knowing that HSV raised their game significantly over the last couple of weeks.
We are not saying that the visitors will leave Allianz Arena undefeated or victorious whatsoever. We just don’t see such a pleasant afternoon for the Bavarians.
