Home I Latest News I Bayern vs Arsenal Betting Preview
Bayern vs Arsenal is one of the most exciting matches this week. They have played multiple times against each other in the past few years, but what’s going to happen this time? Find out about it in our Bayern vs Arsenal Betting Preview.
Bayern is currently taking the top spot in the German Bundesliga with 49 points, while the second-placed RB Leipzig has just 42 points. The Bundesliga crown should be just a matter of time for Bayern, as they have also reached the quarterfinals of the DFB Cup and are competing in the Round of 16 in the Champions League. It looks like everything is going great in Bavaria, right?
Not quite. The team is not playing as well as it used to when Pep Guardiola was the team manager. Carlo Ancelotti is still adjusting the team and most of their victories came in a rather unconvincing fashion. The players seem to be more focused on their individual skills and brilliance instead of competing as a unit. That’s especially true when you look at the offense possession of Bayern. There isn’t the flow of the Guardiola era anymore and mechanisms aren’t working as they used to.
Ancelotti didn’t promise attractive football when he came to Munich, so that’s no surprise even though the results were fine so far. However, Arsenal is a different caliber of opponent and might cause problems for the Bavarian defense.
This season has been a roller coaster ride for the Gunners. Once again they will be facing the opponent that knocked them out of the competition in 2013 and 2014. But times have changed and Bayern is not as strong as they used to be, so it seems.
However, is Arsenal capable of beating the Germans? Arsenal’s title hopes in the Premier League are slowly fading and the Champions League is pretty much the only title they might end up winning this season. The bookmakers heavily favor Bayern in this pairing. We could find odds as low as 1.35 for Bayern to qualify and 3.40 for Arsenal, respectively.
The Gunners will have to rely on scoring a goal away from home. Bayern’s defense wasn’t flawless throughout the season and Arsenal has managed to score in all of its three away games in the Champions League so far.
So, what is the betting tip for this match?
First of all, we are going with the Both Team To Score market. Betfair offers odds of 1.80 for both teams to score, which seems like the most reasonable tip for this match up. Both teams have fantastic strikers and midfielders in their teams and it should be no problem for them to score. Lewandowski, Robben, Sanchez, Ozil and these are just a few names we want to bring up here.
Taking the rather lackluster Bayern performances into consideration, some people might be inclined to back Arsenal +1 on the Handicap at 2.75.
Even though that seems reasonable, I am leaning towards a Bayern home victory, but odds of 1.50 don’t seem to provide any value, that’s why I am sticking with the both to score option.
