Bayern Munich v Benfica: Back another big win for hosts

Bayern Munich's wins normally involve plenty of goals and Dan Fitch doesn't think that their match against Benfica will be any different.

Bayern quickly bounce back from huge defeat

Bayern Munich can book their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a win against Benfica.

The German giants are top of Group E having won all three of their games so far. Bayern won the reverse fixture 4-0 against Benfica and have scored 12 goals in the competition, without conceding.

They are also top of the Bundesliga, having won 5-2 at Union Berlin over the weekend. One competition that they won't be winning this season, though, is the DFB Pokal. Bayern were thrashed 5-0 at Borussia Monchengladbach last week, in the club's biggest defeat since 1978. Julian Nagelsmann was at home self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19 and, while Bayern didn't play well, Gladbach only had six shots on target.

Nevertheless, it was the sort of result to give some hope to the sides looking to best Bayern in the Champions League this season. Whether that extends to Benfica is another matter. They have not been in the best form since Bayern thrashed them, drawing two of their three games (W1).

Another big Bayern win

Bayern Munich are the short priced 1.21 favourites to win, with the draw at 8.4 and Benfica out at 18.0.

While Bayern are very short, they have been consistent enough in this competition that there are some good options in terms of boosting the price for a home victory. With Bayern yet to concede in the group, backing them to win to nil at 2.2 is one, though they have let in seven goals in the last two games.

With that in mind, a Bayern win and over 3.5 goals could make more sense at 2.08. It's landed in each of the last seven games that they've won.
