Bayern Munich vs Tottenham Hotspur
UEFA – Champions League
Date: 11 December 2019, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena, Munich.
Both Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur are expected to finish first and second in the group respective regardless of the results on matchday six of 2019/20 Champions League groups phase.
However, this is not a dead rubber with the sides wanting to finish on a high for two different reasons. The Bavarians who won all their 5 matches so far in the group will be eyeing to make it 6 on the trot and become the seventh team to do so in the history of Champions League.
While for Jose Mourinho and Tottenham, this is an opportunity to seek revenge for the 2-7 drubbing from the hands of Germans on matchday 2.
Let’s take a look at some key stats and figure out the best bets for this Champions League matchday 6 fixture.

Bayern Munich vs Tottenham Hotspur: Prediction
As mentioned at the start neither side is going to take this fixture lightly and therefore wholesome changes to the starting eleven can be ruled out. Therefore, we will be able to watch a highly entertaining matchup this Wednesday.
Despite racing to the round of 16 before final group game, both teams are enduring difficult run in their domestic campaign. This is the reason why I believe that a positive result here will do good for either sides.
Now, Allianz Arena has been a fortress for Bayern over the years, but Leverkusen have proved that the Bundesliga giants are beatable two weeks ago. Since Tottenham snatched victories in their last two visits to Germany, both against Dortmund (2019 & 2018), this is a close one to call on full-time result.
One bet we can bank on is goals, Bayern’s defense looked extremely vulnerable over the past two weeks and both Monchengladbach and Leverkusen made full use of it in the 2-1 Bundesliga win.
Meantime, Spurs have found their scoring boots under Mourinho, especially Kane and Son hit top gear, but they also failed to keep things tight at the back. This is very untypical for a team managed by Mourinho and there is a lot of work to do in this area after his team conceding 7 goals in 5 matches.
Thus, both teams to score is the top bet for Bayern Munich versus Tottenham Hotspur Champions League fixture, yet it is a small price at 1.57 odd.
On the merit of odd, we will also back Spurs not to lose by more than 1 goal, since a similar howler like matchday 2 is out of the cards. Also, the odds in the region of 1.98 is too good to overlook.
