Bayern Munich hit top gear on Saturday with a 5-0 hammering of Hamburg at the Allianz Arena are priced at 9/20 to follow that up by beating FC Zurich in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier.
The Swiss outfit – who are priced at 21/4 – went from bad to worse following their 2-0 defeat at Bayern with a 2-0 home defeat to lowly domestic rivals Neuchatel Xamaz, who were picking up their first win of the season.
Meanwhile, Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer appears to be over his early-season error against Borussia Monchengladbach, having now registered three straight clean sheets.
Combine this with FC Zurich’s current inability to score and odds of 27/20 on the hosts to fail to find the net tonight could be a safe punt.
Jupp Heynckes’ men may look to attack from the start and effectively end the tie before the break. The thumping win over Hamburg saw the Bavarians rack up three goals in the first half and football betting fans can get a tempting 37/20 on Bayern scoring more goals in the opening 45 minutes than after the interval.
However, with Bayern still playing away from home, a more modest correct score in favour of the German side could be worth a shot, particularly for any new punters looking to take advantage of bwin’s £25 free bet.
Odds of 5/1 on the visitors to be leading 2-0 at half time could see a win of £150, while a final score of 2-0 to Bayern is available at 7/1, meaning winnings of £200 for new customers willing to take a chance on this outcome.
FC Zurich will obviously have to go on the attack to overturn the two-goal deficit and could trouble a Bayern defence which has not always been watertight in recent seasons.
The Swiss side have scored and conceded an average of two goals in their last six games, which perhaps makes a 2-2 draw at 50/1 worth a small punt.
In terms of goalscorers, though, Franck Ribery may be the man to watch. The Frenchman opened his account for the campaign at the weekend and is currently on set-piece duty..
Arjen Robben may be the obvious choice for first goalscorer at 7/2, but Ribery is available at 6/1 to break the deadlock or 17/10 to score at any time during the game.
