Tottenham vs Bayern Munich
Date: Tuesday, 01 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Tottenham is not on their prime form in this season as they managed to win only three clashes in their last ten fixtures in the major competitions. In half of the games, they have been pulled to an unnecessary draw towards the end. The Spurs had tied their opening encounter in the group stage ties against Olympiacos.
Spurs will be hosting the German Champions, Bayern Munich, in what is sizing to be a fight of the two attacking sides. Tottenham has been unsettled in this new season of the Premier League until their previous home tie thrashing Crystal Palace 4-0 in the process. But still, their form is doubtful as they lost their previous bout in the schedule to Leicester City.
Bayern Munich is on the top of the Bundesliga table as usual with only RB Leipzig posing a threat. They are unbeaten in the Bundesliga ties. Bavarians had to draw their previous trip on the road against the current table-toppers. Pochettino and his side have displayed strength with Son showing good form in their fixtures. Their only problem is the Erikson’s poor showing in the season.
Niko Kovac and his players are unbeaten in their previous seven encounters in different club leagues. With Lewandowski scoring regularly in most of their fixtures, they have a strong reason to believe in outwitting the Spurs. Adding to this, the Brazilian playmaker Philip Coutinho has joined the Reds to make them stronger in the middle.
The match will certainly be one to watch as the Spurs will try to make a comeback into their strong attires, while the traveling contingent plans to stay at the top of the Group B table.

Tottenham vs Bayern Munich Prediction
The Bavarians have lost only two out of the last seven matches away from home, and these two was against strong contenders in major competitions. Also, Lily Whites have scored in four of the last five home ties. The visitor has not set back in scoring as they have pummeled the opposition defense in six of the previous seven away fixtures.
Besides that, the reigning Bundesliga champions have steadily maintained their form, unlike the unsettling Tottenham side. They have not met in a major competition in recent time, so the substitutions will play a major role in the game. Moreover, the host is unbeaten in their last eight fixtures. And Spurs have won only once in the last seven encounters in their schedule. As such, the match will probably end well for the visitors or may share a point each in the ninety minutes.
