Recent form and Bayern Munich v Benfica stats

Pep Guardiola’s side have struggled against Juventus in the previous round of the UEFA Champions League and they haven’t been that convincing in the Bundesliga this term either than in the previous years. They still lead the competition confidently and are top underdogs to win the Champions League with online betting odds of 3.50 (5/2) at Bet365 Sportsbook. However, Guardiola’s impending departure must be a distraction for Thomas Mueller & co.

Some of their displays were concerning recently, though they still managed to maintain an excellent record with 19 wins, 4 draws and only 2 defeats in their last 25 competitive games. However, Benfica have an even better record from the same sample: an amazing 22 wins, 1 draw only and 2 losses. They did just enough to overcome Zenit in both of their Champions League legs in the round of 16. They are considered as a significantly weaker side by online sportsbooks in Germany, but seem to be capable of carrying out some upsets like defeating Atletico Madrid away from home in the group stage last September.

Best Bayern Munich v Benfica odds at Bet365 Sportsbook

  • Gotze to score first          6.00 (5/1)
  • Draw with Bayern -1        4.33 (10/3)
  • Benfica to win the UCL    126.00 (125/1)

The hosts are strong favourites ahead of this game, backing them on the winner market could be your safe bet for this fixture. The highest Bayern Munich v Benfica odds you can find amongst internet betting sites in the EU for Die Roten is 1.20 (1/5), posted by Bet365 Sportsbook. Draw goes for 7.50 (13/2) with a surprising away win being priced at 17.00 (16/1).

The possible departure of Mario Gotze from Bayern to Liverpool seeing him reuniting with his former mentor, Jurgen Klopp, is a hot story in the British and German sports media right now. Gotze rather not commented these speculations, but he might do his talking on the pitch instead. Though expected to get playing time only late in the game – if he will be featured at all – Bet365 Sportsbook has the best odds for Gotze to score the first goal of the game at 6.00 (5/1). Against a hard-working but tiring Benfica side – why not?

A handicap draw with Bayern -1 is also tempting at 4.33 (10/3) – Bet365 Sportsbook also has the best Bayern Munich v Benfica odds for this one. In their last twelve Champions League games, Benfica have never conceded more than two goals and on nine occasions they have managed to score at least one. A close Bayern victory, like a 2-1 fits into this pattern perfectly.
