Liverpool vs Bayern Munich Betting Preview – 19/02/2019

Liverpool vs Bayern Munich

German powerhouses, Bayern Munich travel over to England this Tuesday where they go up against Liverpool at Anfield for their first leg of the Champions League last 16. Liverpool have been in great form this season and they are reaping the benefits in the Premier League, but Jurgen Klopp will be hoping they show the same form against their Champions League opponents. Bayern have vastly improved since their poor start at the beginning of the season but will have to be at the top of their game to see off this impressive Liverpool side. The Reds hold a good record against Bayern, as over the seven times they have met they have lost just once.

Liverpool are possibly having one of their best seasons in the Premier League and Jurgen Klopp will be keen to progress in the Champions League also. The hosts sit in second place, joint with Manchester City but hold the upper hand as they have a game in hand. Since losing back-to-back games against Manchester City and Wolves, Klopp’s men are unbeaten in their last five which they have secured three wins and two draws from. The Reds made light work of Bournemouth in their previous game, beating them 3-0. SkyBet is offering odds of 1/1 for Liverpool to win.

The Reds defence was once something that caused them numerous problems, but their new improved back line holds the best record in the league with them conceding just 15 goals all season. Despite boasting a strong defence this season, three of their last five games have seen them both score and concede. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 8/15. Mo’ Salah is once again showing his quality this season and has so far bagged 20 goals across all competitions. Betway has Salah to score anytime priced at 6/5.

Bayern Munich have the potential to cause Liverpool serious problems on Tuesday, but their form has not been hugely consistent this season and they can not afford to have a poor game against Liverpool. Bayern trail Borussia Dortmund by two points in the Bundesliga, but BVB hold a game in hand. Niko Kovac’s men have lost just one of their last five games and won the other four. Their latest win came against Augsburg, who they narrowly beat 3-2. The German side can be backed with SkyBet to win at a price of 12/5.

Robert Lewandowski will front his sides main attacking threat this Tuesday, as he has done for the majority of the season. The Polish talisman has racked up 21 goals this season, 15 more than the next highest scoring player at Bayern. The forward has a price of 13/10 to score anytime against Liverpool. All of Munich’s last five games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and Bet365 has over 2.5 goals to be scored, priced at 4/7.
