⚽ The last three results: 6: 0 vs. VfL Wolfsburg, 5: 1 Vs. Borussia Mönchengladbach, 1: 0 v. Hertha BSC
If FC Bayern resigned on Wednesday night from the Champions League, then you can not make the team at least one reproach: that it has not done its homework. For those who have seen Munich play since the 0-0 draw in the first leg will agree that the team of Niko Kovac left nothing to be desired.
At first, the Bavarians showed their tough side against Hertha BSC: The team patiently wore down the disciplined defending Berlin, so that at the end of an intense game, a 1-0 win of the job stood.
The duty followed in the subsequent matchdays duty. Against Borussia Mönchengladbach – after all Bundesliga third in the Bundesliga – Bayern celebrated an intoxicating football night and won thanks to an outstanding offensive performance with 5: 1. The pressure on championship leader Dortmund had been increased so successfully – and the gaming spirit of Gladbach managed to preserve the team.
Therefore, one could almost forgive the Wolfsburg on the following matchday: Without the hint of a chance of VfL against again unleashed aufspielende Munich under, at the end it was 6-0. James Rodriguez, Thiago and Thomas Müller, who was shot by Jogi Löw, were especially fun – and three key figures for the coming Wednesday.

Nevertheless, thanks to impeccable defensive work, they got into a good position to make it to the quarter-finals on home soil. Whether this will succeed, is still in the stars, but one is as already stated: The homework is done.
↪ Possible lineup Bayern Munich
Bayern coach Kovac should make after the impressions of the last few weeks at most slight changes, only the recovered Alaba should be added to the well-rehearsed root of the past games. The following formation would result from this:

Of homework done before the showdown in Munich and the Liverpool FC sing a song: At Burnley FC the Reds showed unerring and won 4: 2 – but before had very serious consequences flawed.
In the top match against Manchester United, for example, the Liverpool had directly after the game against Munich the chance to defeat a team of top caliber and defend the league standings in the Premier League. Instead, it was enough only to a new zero number, which the team of Jürgen Klopp in second place behind Manchester City.
As a result, the team showed against Watford Although a strong performance, won easily 5-0, but only a few days later came the disillusionment again: In Meyerside derby against Everton, the Reds did not succeed in their dominance in Liverpool with a victory to underpin. Like already against Bayern and ManUnited the result was: 0: 0.
Three out of four games without a goal – that’s never been the case in Klopp’s Liverpool – even if that’s not a cause for concern. Teams such as Bayern or Manchester even face world-class offensives such as the Reds before problems, conversely, however, also managed the Reds, attackers of the extra class (Lewandowski, Lukaku) cold. A year or two ago, the team of such abilities was a long way off.
In the second leg, it will be more than three weeks before the British take on a defensive stance. Because unlike in the first leg, it should now be the hosts from Munich, determine the tact and tone of the game. Coach Klopp could possibly be quite right: When his team in last season stormed into the CL final, it did so mainly with raid-like offensive – whereas Bayern are quite vulnerable.
↪ Possible line-up Liverpool FC
Klopp is fortunate to be able to order Virgil van Dijk, his previously yellow-blocked defender back into the first squad. Apart from the Dutch, however, hardly anything should change in comparison to the first leg – the following formation seems conceivable:
↪ Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, J. Matip, van Dijk, Robertson – J. Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum – M. Salah, Roberto Firmino, S. Mané
Best Betting Tips Bayern Munich vs Liverpool
Usually, bookies do not get involved in contradictions – but if that’s the case, then you should be alert.
In the case of the CL knockout round between Bayern and Liverpool a certain ambivalence is recognizable, because while the hosts in the majority of providers on better odds come (about 2.05), the returns for advancement for both teams are almost the same. In plain English: That Bayern wins is technically more probable, but that they do not reach the next round. That’s right: there’s a hitch – after all, the first leg ended 0-0.
Accordingly, betting fans should not allow themselves to be misled by the quotas to erroneous conclusions, as they do not seem to be fully valid. By contrast, looking at the balance sheets of the teams allows significantly more reliable statements: Here, a balanced picture emerges, with Bayern recording a slight form gain after wins against Gladbach (1-0) and Wolfsburg (6-0). If the team can transfer this constitution into the second round second leg, it will be hard to beat – even for Liverpool.
However, given the individual balance and experience of the first leg, it is incredibly difficult to commit to a more likely winner – so we recommend a goal bet. Because it is clear: Both teams have their strengths basically on the offensive, and since both teams need at least one goal to progress, they should take their caution sooner or later. This should result in a racy, promising game – with the corresponding output.
