Looking for Bayern Munich vs Liverpool prediction and betting tips to help you win some money on Wednesday evening? You’re at the right place! We’re now going to discuss the Champions League clash taking place at the Allianz Arena in Munich where Bayern Munich will welcome Liverpool in a battle for a spot in the quarterfinals.
The first leg was played in Liverpool at the score was 0:0. Obviously, the fact that the second leg is played in Germany means that Bayern Munich have a slight advantage. However, this is the Champions League where the away goal rule is applied, meaning that if Liverpool score, a draw will take the visitors to the next stage.
This means that Bayern Munich need to be very careful at the back. Or, they need to outscore the Reds. Both solutions seem plausible because Bayern have been sensational lately. They scored 11 goals in the two games they played so far in March while allowing only one goal.
And the good form in Bundesliga has brought them to the top of the table. Winning the German trophy is definitely in their plans, but their ambitions are much higher than that. They wish to win the Champions League this season. Considering how powerful their squad seems, such a scenario is not impossible.
However, to get there, they first need to leave Liverpool behind. But, that won’t be easy. And one of the reasons for that is that Bayern will miss a couple of key men, including Joshua Kimmich, Thomas Muller, and Arjen Robben.
For Liverpool, the English Premier League is a top priority. Even though they reached the Champions League final last season, it seems that they’d prefer winning the EPL trophy this time. But, they’re an ambitious bunch with an ambitious coach, so you can be sure they’ll aim for both trophies. Achieving such success doesn’t seem impossible, considering their recent form.
Sure, they dropped points in the Merseyside Derby, which made them drop behind Man City on the Premier League table, but there’s still plenty of time left to get back on the top position. They played 0:0 with Everton in that game, which is one of many matches in which they managed to keep a clean sheet. In fact, in 2019, they kept a clean sheet in 6 matches. And 5 of those happened in the previous 6 matches they played.
Apart from being great at the back, Liverpool have also been impressive upfront. However, most of the goals they scored happened at the Anfield. When it comes to scoring away from home, they haven’t been too impressive, at least not lately. Actually, they failed to score in the previous 2 away matches, while in each of the 4 games before that, they scored only one goal.

Bayern Munich vs Liverpool Prediction
Judging by the defensive performances of the two, you might think we won’t see too many goals here, but I think just the opposite is going to happen. If either team scores, the other one will have to attack with all they got. So, maybe we’ll have to wait for the first goal, but once it happens, goals galore should follow.
