Champions League / Tottenham vs Bayern Munich – Tottenham and Bayern are the biggest favourites to win first two positions in the Group B, but Tottenham merely drew away with Olympiacos in the first round. Bayern expectedly won Crevena Zvezda at home and has moved at the first place in the Bundesliga after winning last weekend. Tottenham also won but it occupies the fifth place in the Premier League. The two teams didn’t meet recently in European competitions.
Game Tottenham vs Bayern Munich begins 01.10.2019 at 21:00 CET
Tottenham plays variable at the beginning of the new season, and they didn’t win in the Champions League’s first round. They played in Piraeus with Olympiacos and were considered as favourites to win which they justified in the first half hour of match. They had a lead of 2-0 thanks to Kane and Moura who were scorers and it seemed that the victory is theirs. What followed was an unexplainable drop in performances and they received one goal before the end of the first half and the second goal at the beginning of the second half, so the match ended as a draw. It was clearly a failure, especially after sound lead and now the European vice-champion is under pressure.
They were also under pressure in Saturday's Premier League match with Southampton at home, as their results in the league are not good. They lost to Leicester away two rounds ago and it was their second defeat, but they managed to defeat Southampton. It wasn’t easy given that they were left with a player less after Aurier was sent off. Despite such circumstances H. Kane scored the winner for the final 2-1. There will be definitely changes in the team and Dele Alli and Wanyama could get chance to play.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Lloris – Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies – Wanyama, Sissoko, Ndombele – Eriksen, Dele Alli – H. Kane
Bayern didn’t make a wrong step in the first round of the Champions League and expectedly won Crvena Zvezda at home by 3-0. It wasn't an easy victory as the final result might suggest since 10 minutes before the end the result was only 1-0 for the Bavarians. However, the most important was to win three points at the beginning with which is easier to play now. If we don’t count the Super Cup match, the Bavarians haven’t been defeat this season and after two consecutive victories in the league have taken over the leading position.
After tying the result in Leipzig Bayern defeated Cologne 4-0 at home and Paderborn away by 3-2on Saturday. It was another match in which they were considered as absolute favourites to win but they didn’t easily win as the final result suggests. A pretty strong team was on the pitch. Goretzke wasn’t in it due to injury and Perisic due to illness. The two of them won't be in London either. Alaba should return at the left flank, and perhaps T. Muller gets a chance in order to keep the team fresh.
Probable lineups Bayern: Neuer – Pavard, Sule, Boateng, Alaba – Kimmich, Alcantara – Coman, Coutinho, T. Muller – Lewandowski
Betting Pick: Tottenham vs Bayern
Tottenham will try at home to compensate points lost in the first round against the strongest team in the group. We expect that the home team play offensively but Bayern is always ready to fight back and we forecast an efficient match.
