Arsenal host Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at The Emirates on Tuesday evening in what is likely to be intense encounter.
Bayern Munich start as 21/20 favourites to win the match, Arsenal can be backed at 14/5, whilst the draw is available at 13/5. All odds quoted are available with Bet365.
Arsenal will still be reeling from their shock FA Cup exit at the hands of Blackburn Rovers at the weekend, but they must try and recover from that quickly if they are to gain a first-leg advantage over their German opponents. Prior to their FA Cup defeat Arsenal had won three of their previous four home matches in all competitions, although their recent outings in the Champions League were less impressive with just one victory in their last four matches.
Bayern Munich travel to London in simply stunning form and it is no wonder they are second-favourites for this tournament behind Barcelona. They have won their last eleven matches keeping ten clean sheets, although bear in mind that sequence includes five friendly matches. Bayern are fifteen points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, and in the Champions League they have won three of their last four matches. It is worth noting that when playing away from home in Europe, Bayern don’t tend to be prolific scorers having netted just seven times in their last eight Champions League games on the road.
Despite home advantage, it is difficult to envisage an Arsenal victory against one the top club sides in the world. For me, the Gunners make too many basic errors and if they do so against Bayern Munich they will be severely punished. Arsenal might manage to keep things tight for a chunk of the match, but I expect Bayern’s class to tell over the 90 minutes and will be backing the away win. Odds of 21/20 are reasonable and offer us a good opportunity to double our money. If you fancy something at bigger odds, a 2-1 correct score in favour of Bayern is my pick at 15/2.
