Bayern Munich vs Arsenal: Betting Preview

Bayern Munich vs Arsenal Match Preview

Arsenal heads to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in what promises to be a fascinating UEFA Champions League quarterfinal return leg. After a thrilling 2-2 draw in North London last week, we are in for another spellbinding matchup between two teams who have seen a lot of each other down the years.

There is much riding on this match for both teams. For Bayern, this is the only trophy they can win this season after Bayer Leverkusen officially ended their 11-year stranglehold on the Bundesliga title over the weekend. With that in mind, Thomas Tuchel’s charges will be highly motivated to show they are still a dominant force in continental football.

Bayern will be looking to avoid quarterfinal elimination in the Champions League for the fourth year running. The last time they successfully negotiated this stage, they won their sixth UCL trophy. They are unbeaten in their last five home games in the competition’s knockout phase, which should give them further confidence in being able to get past Arsenal.

For the Gunners, a shock 2-0 home loss to Aston Villa over the weekend put a serious dent in their Premier League title hopes, surrendering top spot to Manchester City. However, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal has looked good in their return to the UCL after a five-year hiatus. It is their first quarterfinal in the competition in 14 years, and they have not gone further since 2008/09.

This game will be crucial in determining which country will enjoy the perks of (at least) five places in the Champions League next season. Germany and England are neck-and-neck in UEFA’s seasonal coefficient ranking, with one of the two countries likely to join Italy in earning a fifth Champions League spot. The result of this match will go a long way in determining who will earn that extra UCL place.

Bayern Munich vs Arsenal Predicted Prediction

Bayern win at 2.37, Bayern to advance at 1.75

Bayern has two massive advantages heading into this match: they only have the UCL to focus on at this point of the season, and that they are playing at home. This is in stark contrast to Arsenal, who has to split their attention between domestic and continental games.

Bayern is unbeaten in their last 14 UCL home games, winning 11 of them in that run. The Gunners have only won once away to Bayern in six previous attempts, making the task all the more arduous.

Bayern Munich vs Arsenal Tips

Over 2.5 goals at 1.53

This one feels like a no-brainer, seeing the enthralling match we had last week at the Emirates. We should expect to see a similar game on Wednesday night regarding goals.

[tgdcta items=”1″ id=”180457″]

Three of Bayern’s four home UCL matches this term have seen more than 2.5 goals scored. While the first leg was one of two games in Arsenal’s last six outings to see over 2.5 goals, this is a much different test for Arteta’s team. In their 10 games since their 1-0 loss to Lazio in the last 16, Bayern has scored multiple times in nine of them, showing their prowess in front of goal.
