Two sides who have already secured their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League, Bayern Munich and Tottenham will look to finish their Group B campaign on a high when they meet at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
Bouncing back from their defeat at Old Trafford last week to pick up a thumping 5-0 win over Burnley last time out, Spurs have made a string of improvements since bringing in former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.
On the flip side, while Bayern Munich may have also secured a route out of Group B with time to spare, the German giants have begun to show some public signs of a struggle nearing closer to Christmas.
Suffering back-to-back 2-1 defeats and now someway off mounting a defence of their Bundesliga crown, there is no doubt that Bayern are a side desperately seeking a response.
However, picking up a famous 7-2 win in North London back in October, you might be interested to know that Wednesday’s hosts can be found priced at 4/11 with Bet365 to make a return to winning ways on home soil in midweek.
Bayern Munich’s headache
Still looking for a new permanent boss to replace Niko Kovac, Bayern Munich once again struggled in their 2-1 defeat away at Bundesliga leaders Borussia Mönchengladbach over the weekend.
Also, hit with another 2-1 defeat at home against Bayer Leverkusen entering December, the defending champions find themselves sat down in 6th and the mood in their camp remaining at a season-low.
While Bayern might be enduring their most inconsistent campaign in recent memory, they do have one attacking talisman who has enjoyed what is quickly becoming a stellar year.
Along with bagging a brace in Bayern’s 7-2 win away at Spurs earlier in the season, Robert Lewandowski has already bagged a stellar 31 goals for club and country this season and no player across Europe can boast a better return.
Also recording 10 Champions League strikes, you might be interested to know that the 31-year-old can be found at 2/5 with Paddy Power to extend on his tally in midweek.
Tottenham’s free-scoring run continues
Despite suffering a 2-1 defeat away at Jose Mourinho’s former employers Manchester United last week, Spurs really bounced back in some style over the weekend.
Putting five past Burnley and continuing to shine in the final third, Wednesday’s guests have won four of their five matches since appointing the Portuguese tactician.
With their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League already confirmed, there is no doubt that Tottenham will travel to Munich filled with confidence.
Unsurprisingly, while Bayern may have one leading marksman continuing to shine nearing closer to Christmas, Mourinho has his own attacking MVP who you should keep an eye out for on Wednesday night.
Bagging a brace against Burnley over the weekend, England skipper Harry Kane has recorded 25 goals for club and country since opening the new campaign and has also registered four goals in his last two Champions League appearances.
You might be interested to know that Kane can be found priced at 2/1 with William Hill to once again find the net on foreign soil in midweek.
