Bayern to win 3-0 at odds of 6/1
Having played five games in the Swiss league this season, FC Zurich find themselves only sixth having lost more games than they have won in a league that doesn’t compare at all favourably to the Bundesliga. So a win in this evening’s match at odds of 12-1 or a passage to the next round at 11-1 is unlikely to find much support.
Bayern, by contrast, have managed to retain one of the best squads in Europe with the likes of Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger in their prime. As usual, they have started their domestic campaign sluggishly but this could be the game that ignites their season. Given the attack talent at coach Jupp Heynckes’ disposal, odds of 6-1 on a 3-0 scoreline represents decent value.
Bayern to score three or more goals at odds of 3/4
If you’re feeling too cautious for a correct score bet, why not bet on three or more goals for Bayern? Zurich have conceded ten goals in five games in the league and you have to fear for them if Bayern really show up. They might be short odds, but 3/4 on Bayern scoring three or more goals seems like a banker.
FC Zurich to score the first goal in the first half at odds of 21/4
Despite all the talent, Bayern have had a rather strange start to their season with a home defeat and an away win on the board. It’s hard to imagine anything but a Bayern win tonight, but there are no pushovers in the Champions League and a punt on Zurich taking a shock lead could leave you smiling all the way to the bank at 21/4.
