Bayern Munich are third favourites in the Champions League outright betting market, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side surviving a scare in Austria when drawing 1-1 against Red Bull Salzburg before a crushing 7-1 victory over the same opponents at the Allianz Arena. This is a powerful team who have tremendous scoring power.

Bayern have a healthy advantage at the top of the German Bundesliga table which means they are unlikely to be caught, with twenty wins achieved from their twenty-seven games played. Some would argue that they’re not as formidable as the team that lifted the European Cup under Hansi Flick although they are still major players.

Robert Lewandowski remains a reliable source of goals and the Polish forward has thirty-one goals on the board, although there have been some concerning fixtures including a recent 4-2 reverse away to Bochum. They have also been held to draws by Bayer Leverkusen and Hoffenheim which will certainly give Villarreal hope of getting a positive outcome.

The Yellow Submarine have passed all the assignments handed to them so far, with Emery’s side heading to Atalanta on 9 December and racing into a 3-0 lead before beating La Dea 3-2 and securing their place in the last sixteen. They were the outsiders to overcome Juventus after a 1-1 draw at home before a surprise 3-0 triumph in Turin.

Gerard Moreno has just returned from injury and gives the team some much-needed firepower, while Arnaut Danjuma has fifteen goals for the season and the Dutchman will be confident of causing Bayern Munich problems with his trickery, while nineteen-year-old forward Yeremi Pino will hope to get game time and scored an amazing four goals against Espanyol recently.

What Are the Best Bets for Villarreal v Bayern Munich?

It is clear that the draw offers more value than the Bayern Munich win for this game. This isn’t a clash that Nagelsmann’s team need to win and he will feel as though a 1-1 draw or something similar would give them a platform to enjoy a big victory at the Allianz Arena. He will certainly be wary of a side who have already effectively dumped Atalanta and Juventus out of the competition already.

Villarreal might look to get among the goals in the first leg and would ideally want to get their noses in front, with BTTS Yes looking like a viable option. You could also look at the Over 2.5 Goals quote for a bit of interest, with the visitors looking to get some kind of advantage of their own.
