On December 6 2016 at 19:45 in the final game of the 6th round of the Champions League group stage at the Allianz Arena Bayern play against Atletico Madrid.
We must start with the fact that a series of mistakes made Bayern lose their first position in the standings of their national championship. Yet, the victory against Bayer 2:1 didn’t let Leipzig get a bigger getaway and keep the distance of three points. In the champions League Bayern lost to Rostov and didn’t let them take the first place in the standings of the group. Yet, they have enough points to become the members of the play-offs of the competition.
As for Atletico, they went through the difficult times and got back to their regular level. In the latest game of the national championship they outplayed Osasuna 0:3 and broke the two games long winless series where they lost to Real Madrid 0:3 and Real Sociedad 2:0. As for the Champions League, the situation in that competition is pretty good for Atletico. They show great performance there and seem to be very ambitious. Atletico won five games in a raw and took the first place in the group. Of course, Atletico will definitely take part in that competition in spring.
The teams have already met three times. Atletico won twice and Bayern. We must also admit that in the first game of the current group stage Bayern had a huge advantage in possession, yet they lost as Atletico were great in counterattacks. Even though Bayern are the favorites of the upcoming game, they are not as strong as they used to be. Anyway, we think that both teams will show great performance and the fans will be able to see and interesting game. Both teams are very likely to score in the upcoming game.
Prediction for the match: both teams to score.
