Match Betting (1x2)

Jose Mourinho has recently been installed as the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur, with the decorated coach being able to go to the Allianz Arena in a relaxed frame of mind considering that Spurs have done enough to qualify for the last sixteen stage of the Champions League.

While Spurs had to scrap their way through a group which included Barcelona and Inter Milan last season, the presence of Red Star Belgrade and Olympiacos in the section has enabled them to make easy progress, although there was a scare when they fell two goals behind against the latter.

Spurs are as big as 5/1 to win against Bayern Munich and they’ll be looking for some kind of revenge after suffering a humiliating 7-2 reverse against the German champions a few weeks ago.

That result probably signalled the end for Mauricio Pochettino as manager, with Mourinho now looking for a positive showing after Tottenham opened with three consecutive victories under his regime.

Naturally, the self-styled Special One won’t necessarily risk many first-team players for a clash which is essentially a dead rubber and that explains why Ladbrokes have 8/15 about the home side winning again.

Bayern have been flawless in the Champions League this season, recording five straight victories and they have been qualified for the last sixteen for a long time, with Hans-Dieter Flick currently in caretaker charge.

It might certainly pay to consider team news when looking at placing a bet on this clash, with the draw a potential runner and that’s trading at 15/4 which might make more appeal than the home win. After all, Mourinho never wants to lose.

Asian Handicap

We’re actually surprised that Bayern Munich are trading at such a short price to win this game considering the outcome is relatively meaningless and it’s possible that Tottenham will acquit themselves much better than the prices suggest.

You can get 8/13 about Spurs +1.5 in this game and that means that the London side would only need to avoid a defeat by two goals or more in order for this bet to win.

BetVictor have 17/16 about Tottenham +1 should you think they can avoid defeat but want your money back if the margin of defeat is just one goal.

First Goalscorer

Robert Lewandowski is a scoring legend at Bayern Munich although it wouldn’t be a complete surprise if the Pole is given a night off. As mentioned, the Bavarian side are not having things their own way domestically this term and it might be that the forward gets a breather ahead of some difficult games.

Similarly, Harry Kane might want to play in every match although Mourinho has to consider the bigger picture and the fact that qualifying for the Champions League is the ultimate priority this season after the London club endured a difficult start under Pochettino.

Consider some of the other leading lights for First Goalscorer potential. There is Son Heung-Min or Lucas Moura who could play in an advanced position for the visitors, while Dele Alli has been revitalised under his new manager.

Over / Under Goals

Mourinho arrived at White Hart Lane with a reputation for being a defensive manager, although early indications suggest that Tottenham supporters are actually going to be treated to some entertaining football.

The 4-2 win over Olympiacos saw Spurs come back from two goals down to win the clash and the bookmakers are anticipating a high-scoring clash at the Allianz, with odds of 2/5 about Over 2.5 Goals.

Some punters will be more interested in the even money about Over 3.5 Goals in this clash, with both teams potentially being given the licence to pour forward and score goals for their respective sides.

However, there isn’t going to be a huge appetite for a victory and perhaps a low-scoring draw could be on the cards instead. Under 2.5 Goals is available at 11/5 instead.
