Celtic will have been disappointed with their defending in a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich in Germany, with each goal ultimately resulting from an initial cross into the box and unmarked headers.
The margin could have been even worse but for Craig Gordon making solid saves from Muller, Arjen Robben and Arturo Vidal while the Bundesliga giants also had what looked a clear penalty waved away.
Jupp Heynckes’ return has revitalised the visitors and we’re backing them at 83/100 to again lead at half-time and full-time in our Celtic vs Bayern Munich betting predictions.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
The euphoria of Celtic’s 3-0 victory at Anderlecht didn’t last long as they were carved open time and time again at Allianz Arena.
Looking ahead to the return fixture, Gordon commented: “We’re up against a top-quality team and it will still be difficult, even at home, to take anything from the game.”
However, he added: “It’s difficult to stop them from creating chances with the quality they have, that may still be the same, but we’ll pose a threat at the other end and make it a good game.”
Brendan Rodgers felt there were some positive signs, adding: “There were lots of moments in the game when we looked comfortable. At times, when we went into their half, we looked very good.”
It’s hard to see the Hoops matching Bayern over 90 minutes but a great atmosphere at Parkhead could spur them on to at least grab a consolation goal.
We’re adding 6/5 for an away win and both teams to score to our Celtic vs Bayern Munich betting tips.
A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds
Bayern bounced back well from the 3-0 loss to PSG that signalled the end of Carlo Ancelotti’s reign and spirits have quickly been lifted by a change of leadership.
Defender Jerome Boateng stated: “Jupp Heynckes makes everyone in the team feel important, even those who didn’t play. That’s what he does.”
However, the timing of this trip to Glasgow could have been better, coming in between Bundesliga battles with RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund while Muller was injured in a recent 1-0 win over Hamburg.
If Heynckes does opt to rotate his squad for this fixture or make changes as the game progresses, it could allow the Hoops to come into it later on.
That makes 12/5 for the Bhoys to bag the last goal tempting from the Celtic vs Bayern Munich odds.
