Liverpool play Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16 this week and the Premier League side are favourites to win this first leg. Virgil Van Dijk is suspended and that should see Bayern Munich get on the scoresheet too – we’re in for an entertaining match at Anfield!
Liverpool to win – 21/10
Draw – 14/5
Bayern Munich to win – 13/5
Despite being favourites to win this match, Liverpool will be worried about the defensive cover they have available to them. With Van Dijk suspended and Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren injured, it looks like Jurgen Klopp will deploy Fabinho as an emergency central defender. Up against the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Franck Ribery and James Rodriguez, this could spell danger for Liverpool so both teams to score could be the best bet of the night at odds of 1/2 with bet365.
If you are predicting a Liverpool victory then Liverpool to win and both teams to score gives a nice return at odds of 12/5 with bet365. This bet would have won Liverpool’s earlier group stage match against PSG when they ran out 3-2 winners.
The over goals markets will also be popular here and over 2.5 is the obvious choice but once again the odds are short. bet365 go 4/7 that there are three or more goals in the match against Bayern.
In the goalscorer betting odds for Liverpool vs Bayern, it is no surprise to see Mo Salah the shortest price of the Liverpool players. He’s 15/4 to get the first goal of the match or 20/21 to score anytimr at bet365. For once, Salah is not the favourite in the goalscorer odds for a Liverpool match at Anfield – that honour falls to the prolific Robert Lewandowski who is 10/3 in the first scorer odds or 4/5 to net anytime.
Franck Ribery’s wife has just given birth but he will be in the Bayern squad and he’s a tempting 10/1 to score the first goal of the match, or 11/4 to net anytime. The usual Liverpool front line are expected to start here and Roberto Firmino is 6/1 to score first, with Saido Mane available at the same odds. We’re tipping Saido Mane to score in our Tottenham vs Liverpool betting tips for the Champions League final. He got a goal in the second leg of this tie against Bayern Munich.
The shortest price correct score bet in this clash is a 1-1 draw at 6/1 with bet365. We’ve already mentioned the appeal of both teams to score and Liverpool fans will be looking at the 2-1 scoreline (15/2) or even 3-1 (14/1), which would give them a cushion going into the second leg at the Allianz Arena.
If you think the makeshift Liverpool defensive paid can keep a clean sheet then a 2-0 Liverpool victory is 11/1 or a 3-0 win is 18/1. The 1-0 victory is priced at 10/1.
Those who are predicting a Liverpool defeat at Anfield for the first time in 19 European matches will get 14/1 for a 1-0 Bayern Munich win. A 2-0 win is 20/1 or a 2-1 victory is 11/1.
