Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second round in the UEFA Champions League, in Group D, Atletico Madrid host Bayern Munich at Vicente Calderón. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich.


Atletico Madrid started with victory this season in the UEFA Champions League after they beat PSV 0-1 in the first round. Home side have big ambitions in this competition and they hope that can finally win the trophy. They played two times in the finals in the last three season and in both finals they lost against city rivals. Before that, the last time they have played in the final was against Bayern Munich in the season 1973/1974. Atletico have very strong squad and they are playing great in the last few seasons under command of Diego Simeone. After six rounds in LaLiga, Atletico Madrid stand at the 3rd position and their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 3. They are still unbeaten in all competitions and without any doubt they will be fully motivated to make positive result against Bavarians. Probably their best player, Antoine Griezmann, is in the great form and he has already scored 5 goals this season.

Bayern Munich started this season amazing in the Champions League after they smashed FK Rostov 5-0 in the first round. In Bundesliga they have 5 wins in 5 matches and their performance in all competitions this season is amazing. Without any doubt, German side is one of the main favorites to win the Champions League. Visitors will be fully motivated to beat Atletico and revenge them for the elimination in the Champions League Semi-finals last season. Last season Bayern Munich beat Atletico Madrid in the Semi-finals 2-1, but team from Madrid went through because they took a win in the first leg (1-0). Bayern have very good attack and they will be a big treat for home defence, while on the other side Bayern have amazing defence and this season they conceded only one goal in all competitions. Robert Lewandowski is in the great form. He has already scored 9 goals this season, in all competitions, and he could be the most dangerous player for home side.
