Bayern and Arsenal will meet on the upcoming Wednesday on the field of the Munich team. This will be the first match of the competition. The second one will be in three weeks in London. Bookmakers consider Bayern clear favorites in this pair and we have to agree with such statement of the “all-knowing”, as Bayern are one of the three strongest teams in the world, while Arsenal aren’t the strongest team even in the EPL.
Bayern are confidently leading Bundesliga of 2016-17 season. The men from Munich currently have 49 points in the asset after 20 played rounds. Leipzig have seven points less, Eintracht have fourteen less. There is already no doubt, in the middle of February, that this team will become the champion of Germany by the end of the season. Within the Champions League, Bayern have had three domestic games in the current season and got three victories over Rostov, PSV and Atletico.
Arsenal, in their turn, are only third in the EPL. After 25 rounds in the English elite league, the Gunners have 50 points in the asset and ten-point gap from Chelsea, which are on the leading position. Arsenal had three wins with two losses within the last five matches. The defeats happened against Chelsea and Watford and the victories were registered over Southampton, Burnley and Hull City.
Bayern are stronger than Arsenal by squad, the men from Munich perform great at their home arena, while the Londoners sometimes have troubles with away matches. In this situation, a bet on the future hosts and favorites seems the best option. The last match between the two teams, which was in Munich, ended in a 5:1 win for Bayern.
Prediction for the match: Bayern to win.
