What Trueform says for Bayern Munich vs Liverpool

Liverpool failed to break down Bayern Munich at Anfield but we still fancy them to reach the next round of the Champions League.

FC Hollywood put in a professional display on Merseyside but will have to open up more in Germany, which should suit a superb counter-attacking team like the Reds.

Punters can get 91/100 for the English outfit to progress and that is our initial Bayern Munich vs Liverpool prediction.

A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds

Bayern deserve plenty of credit for a resilient performance in the first leg, with wing-backs Joshua Kimmich and David Alaba curbing their attacking instincts and holding firm in defence.

That stretched their unbeaten run in this season’s competition to seven matches, but not one shot on target tells its own story.

Niko Kovac insisted: “We didn’t score, but we didn’t let one in. We’re at home now and I think home games are an advantage. It was a great defensive performance.”

However, the away goals rule makes 0-0 a precarious position to start the second encounter from, especially with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane waiting to pounce on the break.

Ajax drew 1-1 at Allianz Arena during the group stage and a repeat of that result would be good enough for Liverpool.

The feeling is that the Reds may have to hit the target more than once, though, as Bayern have netted 11 times in their last couple of Bundesliga wins over Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg.

Looking at the Bayern Munich vs Liverpool odds, we reckon 333/100 for any score draw is appealing.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool couldn’t quite find a cutting edge on Merseyside, with Mane pulling a shot wide from inside the area and Joel Matip and Salah fluffing close-range headers.

Other promising moves petered out due to a poor final pass, but the Reds can take heart from the way Jordan Henderson helped them boss the midfield battle.

Robert Lewandowski was kept quiet even without the suspended Virgil van Dijk, who will be a threat at set-pieces when returning in Munich.

Andrew Robertson commented: “We came up against a very experienced team, a team that has been there and done it for six or seven years now.

“They knew how to frustrate us and how to frustrate the fans and they did it well, but we had chances.

“A clean sheet at home in the Champions League is so crucial, because we know if we can grab one over there, it means they have to score two.

“These are all things that come into play and if we can be a bit more clinical, I think we can score over there.”

Let’s finish off our Bayern Munich vs Liverpool betting tips by taking 6/5 for the Reds to net first in Germany.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have done relatively well since facing Bayern, drawing away to Manchester United and Everton, whilst putting nine goals past Watford and Burnley in home wins.
