Bayern Munich vs Salzburg prediction, odds & betting tips

Kick-off: 2000, 08/03/2022

Stadium: Allianz Arena

TV: BT Sport

Bayern Munich left it late when drawing the first leg of their Champions League clash with Salzburg but should now advance on home turf.

The German giants, who won 3-1 and 6-2 in group-stage games between these teams last season, dominated for long periods in Austria.

That was another open affair, so 1.98 for the Reds to prevail and over 3.5 goals is our initial Bayern Munich vs Salzburg prediction.

Bayern Munich Odds

Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane went close for Bayern at Red Bull Arena, where they had 64 per cent of the possession and led 22-11 in attempts on goal.

However, it took Kingsley Coman’s 90th-minute equaliser to earn them a 1-1 stalemate, after Thomas Muller headed on a hopeful cross from Benjamin Pavard.

Midfielder Joshua Kimmich told DAZN: “In the first half, it wasn’t quite enough.

“We weren’t switched on enough winning the second balls, which kept giving Salzburg dangerous counter opportunities.

“We controlled the game better in the second half and applied more pressure. In the end, we got the draw, which is fine for me.”

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann also felt his side were guilty of some sloppy play before the break, but Salzburg do deserve credit for trying to be positive.

The young Austrian outfit lack nothing in energy and enthusiasm, so it would be no surprise to see them get on the scoresheet again here.

However, we’re sticking with the hosts to prevail and Bayern Munich vs Salzburg odds.

FC Salzburg Odds

Salzburg threatened an upset in Austria when Junior Adamu fired in a 21st-minute opener and the 20-year-old almost bagged a second late on.

Sven Ulreich kept out Karim Adeyemi’s shot but Adamu looked sure to slot home the rebound, only for Pavard to produce a crucial block.

At the other end of the pitch, Philipp Kohn put in a fine display to deny Bayern until that last-gasp leveller.

“The team gave everything,” Adamu told UEFA. “I’m really proud, so let’s carry on in the same vein. It’s not over yet.

“There were some slightly tired legs out there. We ran out of energy a little bit towards the end, but we fought well.”

However, Salzburg only picked up one point from three away games in their group, drawing at Seville before losing at Wolfsburg and Lille.

They will be put under pressure from the outset at Allianz Arena and 1.95 for the hosts to be ahead after 30:00 minutes is added to our Bayern Munich vs Salzburg betting tips.
