Match Betting (1x2)

Tottenham got off to a flying start away to Olympiacos and led 2-0 against their Greek opponents a fortnight ago, although Spurs were eventually reined in and could only draw the match 2-2.

It was a result that angered Mauricio Pochettino and it puts a little pressure on this coming clash at White Hart Lane against the champions of Germany. A defeat would mean just one point on the board from two games played.

Spurs are trading as the outsiders to beat Bayern Munich, with Unibet going 19/10 about the north London side getting the better of their German opponents, although that does look a big price.

After all, Tottenham did knock Borussia Dortmund out of the Champions League last year and should still be regarded as a force at White Hart Lane, while they did manage to reach the final of this competition last season.

Bayern enjoyed a 3-0 win against Red Star Belgrade in their opening Champions League group game, with the team currently sitting second in the Bundesliga table.

Perhaps this one will end all square which will be encouraging for the two sides in their quest to land a place in the last sixteen. You can get 11/4 about the draw with William Hill.

First Goalscorer

Harry Kane is generally good for a few goals every season and the Tottenham marksman has begun the campaign pretty well, having scored four goals in the Premier League as well as the opening goal against Olympiacos.

Therefore, it’s natural that we should consider the England captain as a logical starting point to score the first goal. Kane is a 4/1 chance to break the deadlock and he will also be on penalty duties for the London side.

We think Son Heung-Min is a player that often comes to life in these sort of clashes and the South Korean is going to be a livewire that could prove hard to contain.

You can back the forward at 7/1, although Bayern Munich have their own marksman within the ranks looking to make an impact and the stats for Robert Lewandowski are truly amazing.

The Pole has carried this Bayern team for many seasons due to his lethal finishing ability, with Lewandowski currently on nine goals in the Bundesliga and he’s available at 5/1 to score first in this clash.

It might also be worth considering the 6/4 about the striker on the Anytime Scorer market, with Paddy Power chalking up these odds.

Asian Handicap

The Asian Handicap market can be used for customers who have an opinion on whether a team might win by a sizeable margin. Alternatively you can back Tottenham 0 or Bayern Munich 0 and know that there will be money back should the game end in a draw.

Spurs backers will be pleased to see that they can get 6/5 about the home side on the Asian Handicap and that simply means you need them win to be paid out at these odds but also have the draw as money back insurance.

Bayern Munich 0 is available at 3/4 with BetVictor although we should note that their most recent away game only saw Niko Kovac’s side draw 1-1 away to Leipzig so they can’t be regarded as good things in this match.

Both Teams to Score

At the time of writing, Bayern Munich have played eight matches in all competitions. Four of these have seen both teams find the net and four of them have seen at least one side fail to score. Therefore, you might consider that this Champions League clash is something of a toss-up.

However, the bookmakers have a strong opinion and feel as though the “Yes” option on the BTTS market is way more likely than the “No” option, with odds of 1/2 or 4/9 available that both sides find the net during the ninety minutes.

Perhaps this is down to the fact that Bayern have scored in their past seven matches after losing a Super Cup clash against Borussia Dortmund by a 2-0 scoreline.

Similarly, it’s often the case that Tottenham bag goals at White Hart Lane and they recently put four past Crystal Palace which illustrates their lethal attacking potential for this game.

Over / Under Goals

There have been as many as seven goals in some Bayern Munich matches this season. The German champions beat Mainz 6-1 while they have more recently enjoyed 3-0 and 4-0 wins over Red Star Belgrade and Cologne respectively.

Over 2.5 Goals is trading at 4/7 with Paddy Power and there will be plenty of punters thinking that at least three goals will be scored, especially when you consider two attacking teams will be going for the victory.

If you take this line of thinking, then Unibet have 8/5 about Over 3.5 Goals happening and we could see the two teams trading blows with each other.

However, Bayern recently drew 1-1 away to Leipzig and have a relatively mean defence that might prove difficult to breach.

As such, Under 2.5 Goals could potentially be a spot of value at 6/5 with William Hill and Tottenham will be looking to tame Mauricio Pochettino.

Correct Score

The market leader is a 1-1 scoreline and it’s perfectly feasible that we’ll see the leading teams in this Champions League group cancel each other out, with the bookies generally trading 6/1 about this outcome.

Bayern Munich are an 8/1 poke to win by a 2-1 scoreline, while alternatively punters can back the 10/1 about a 2-1 triumph in favour of Tottenham.
