The match

Bayern Munich welcome Benfica to the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night for a Champions League Group E fixture. Bayern are top of the table, with nine points from three games, while Benfica are second, with four. Last time out, Bayern left Lisbon after winning 4-0 at the Estadio da Luz. They exerted clear dominance and did so again in their next outing, a 4-0 home win over Hoffenheim, making it three games in a row in which they scored four or more goals. Then, something strange happened. Bayern didn't score four or more goals; the opposition did. Monchengladbach handed them a surprise hammering in the German Cup to make people pause and wonder if it was a blip or if it was Bayern's flaws becoming exposed. However, at the weekend, they bounced back by winning 5-2 at Union Berlin. Go figure. Bayern were simply missing the presence of their manager during that defeat, Julian Nagelsmann unable to attend due to a Covid bout. Bayern are unbeaten at home against Portuguese clubs, winning 11 of their 13 games. They have won the last five, scoring 20 goals in the process. 

Benfica have failed to win 24 of their 26 away games against German opponents. They could not win two of the three games that followed that heavy home loss to Bayern, drawing their last two outings. They are unbeaten away from home this season, but it would be a shock if that didn't change in Munich. Back Bayern to score three or more goals.

Key Statistics

  • Bayern have scored 20 goals in their last five home matches against Portuguese clubs.
  • Bayern have scored four or more goals in four of their last five matches in all competitions.
  • Benfica have failed to win 24 of their previous 26 matches away to German clubs.

The bet of our experts

Bayern are a winning machine - provided their coach is present, and the opponents don't have a strange bogey power over them, like Gladbach. They seem to find German foes tougher than their continental counterparts. We expect a free-flowing home win. Back Bayern to score three or more goals.
