Champions League: Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid

Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg of the semi-finals in the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich host Atletico Madrid at Allianz Arena. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid.


Bayern Munich lost the first match against Atletico Madrid 1-0, so they have to win this game in order to reach the final of the UEFA Champions League. Home side have to score at least two goals and save their net. In Bundesliga, they failed to beat Borussia Monchengladbach (1-1), but their coach Josep Guardiola was rested many important players for this game, so it wasn’t a big surpise. Bayern still have 5 points more than second Borussia Dortmund, so if they beat Ingolstadt in the next round they can start celebrating the title. Before that game they have more important game and they are fully focused and motivated to win this game and qualify in the final. In the first leg, they have played very good, created few very good chances, but they failed to score. This time they are playing at home, upfront their supporters, but they will be under pressure. If Bayern Munich concede a goal, they will have to score at least three, so I believe that they will play very careful in defence. “Atleti defend very well, but they are also going good up front. It is complicated to play a team like them.” – said Guardiola.

Atletico Madrid can be satisfied after they beat Bayern Munich in the first leg. This is a very good for Spanish side, especially if we have in mind their super defence. Visitors have the best defence in Primera and it’s very hard for any club to hit their net. Atletico are in the great form with 7 consecutive wins in all competition, while in the last six victories they conceded a single goal and that is their main weapon. I don’t believe that they will play open this match. They know how to make high pressure on the opponent and waiting for counter-attacks. Griezmann and Ferando Torres are very fast players and they both could very dangerous for Bavarians. In the last game in La Liga against Rayo Vallecano, they have many problems to hit the net, because their coach Diego Simeone has started the match without many important players. Griezmann went on the pitch as a substitute in the 55 minutes and hit the goal in the same minute for the final 1-0. With that win they are still one point behind FC Barcelona and still in the race for the title, but in this moment the match in Munich is more important for them. “We want to win, that’s our plan. We want to play well and enjoy our success. But above all, what matters most is that we make the final.” – said Simeone.

Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Home team have an advantage of home field, but it will be hard for them to score against Atletico and save their net. I expect a very tough game between Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid and believe that Spanish side will be the first finalist.
