UEFA Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich Odds, Expert Pick & TV Info

Written by on March 6, 2017

Getting into the Round of 16 in the Champions League is a very nice accomplishment, but in order to move on to the next round, teams, particularly those on the road, need to put in a solid effort in the first leg. The goal is usually to make the trip and hopefully come back with a tie or a slim defeat that includes an away goal. Those types of results usually give you a fighting chance in the second leg at home. Spare a thought for poor Arsenal, as they had a tough Round of 16 tie versus Bayern Munich that they had to start in Germany. Arsenal got that all-important away goal, but, unfortunately, they gave up 5 in return. The second leg of this one now seems like a bit of a formality, as the Germans can simply head into the Emirates and play a containment style of football, safe in the knowledge that they are unlikely to give up the 4 goals that would see the tumbling out of the competition.

Why bet on the Arsenal

Arsenal are a team in a bit of disarray right now, which is not uncommon for them at this stage of the season. This is a team that always seem to make a promising start to the season, only to see it all fall apart in the final couple of months. Things were already a little wobbly heading into the first leg of this one, and the 5-1 defeat has only served to fuel the conversations that it may be time-up for Arsene Wenger in the hot seat. The Gunners did not play particularly well over the weekend, losing 3-1 to Liverpool, and there also appears to be trouble in the dressing room, as word is that Alexis Sanchez has had a falling out with the boss. Troubled times at the Emirates.

Why bet on the Bayern Munich

There seems to be no doubt that it will be Bayern Munich who move on to the next round, but it’s going to be interesting to see what sort of approach they take to this game. Given the scoring power that they have in their squad, it would not be a big surprise to see them come out and try to totally kill this tie with an early goal. They have managed 57 goals in the Bundesliga this season, so they are more than capable of finding the net if need be. Even if they decide to sit back and soak up the pressure, they seem well equipped to do so, as they have only given up 13 goals in 23 league games this season

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Arsenal are going to come out and have a go, but that also means leaving themselves exposed at the back when Bayern hit them on the break. I think we’ll see goals in this one and Bayern Munich moving on.
