Breaking Man City v Bayern Munich odds, Schalke v Chelsea free bets on Champions League & betting as 888Sport offer £10 at a boosted price of 5/1 on Bayern beating Manchester City tonight (was 11/10!) – which has to be one of the bets of the week.
Manchester City are struggling at the moment in the Premier League and in Europe, and with Bayern Munich arguably in the form of their lives at the moment, the away win at 5/1 on offer is certainly a big price and looks an easy way to make a quick £50!
Its safe to say that Manuel Pellegrini’s side face an extremely difficult challenge tonight in the Champions League as they face a Bayern side who have domainated their group so far, scoring an incredible 11 goals and conceding only once.
Pep Guardiola’s Munich have already qualified from the group, with four wins from four guaranteeing top spot for the 2012/13 champions, and there’s little doubt that the mercurial Spaniard will be looking to end City’s Champions League ambitions once and for all tonight.
Two points from City’s four Champions League games isn’t good enough and Manuel Pellegrini’s men lost at home to CSKA Moscow last time out, so the signs are definitely not good for the home side coming into the game.
Seydou Doumbia scored twice at the Etihad in an abysmal showing from the Premier League champions – Both Fernando and Yaya Toure were dismissed in the loss, meaning they are suspended for the visit of Munich which is a massive blow, especially as Toure looks to be slowly creeping back into some sort of form.
David Silva will also be missing from the midfield, in what looks damage limitation for City.
A comfortable home win over A.S Roma saw Bayern win a fourth consecutive Champions League match and secure top spot as Pep Guardiola’s side will want to keep their Champions League winning mentality going forward.
With Yaya Toure and Fernandinho suspended, as well as David Silva missing through injury, Manuel Pellegrini has a dilemma in the midfield, with Frank Lampard set to feature.
The former Chelsea man will be partnered by Fernando in defensive midfield roles, with Samir Nasri likely to play behind Sergio Aguero.
Vincent Kompany has returned to full fitness and will partner either Martin Demichelis or Eliaquim Mangala in defence, as a once solid looking back four looked decidedly shaky against Swansea on the weekend.
Bayern Munich have their own injury problems and will be without Philipp Lahm, Javi Martinez and Thiago Alcantara, but should include the inspirational Bastian Schweinsteiger in midfield, who returned from injury last weekend for the Bavarians.
Robert Lewandowski will lead the line for Bayern Munich, with Claudio Pizarro on the bench for the Bundesliga champions once again.
Rafinha looks set to start from full-back with Bastain Schweinsteiger returning from his own injury.
It looks an incredibly difficult challenge for Manchester City tonight and Bayern look like a side who are a few levels above City in terms of quality coming into the game.
The loss of European heavyweights David Silva and Yaya Toure in midfield is a massive blow to the home side, and defensively City look very brittle at the back – as highlight in the ease of Wilfred Bony’s goal on the weekend, and its difficult to see them getting anything from the the game.
The boosted price of 5/1 on the Bayern Munich win is oozing appeal and value – don’t forget the price is normally 11/10, and its one bet which shouldn’t be passed up tonight.
