While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Atletico and Bayern lock horns for a second consecutive season. In spring these two clubs met in the Champions League semi-final. As we all remember Atleti made it to the final match beating the Bavarians at home (1-0) and suffering an away defeat (1-2). As for their current form, it should be mentioned that both teams are well-prepared for this battle and have an impressive goal-scoring statistics. In 6 games Simeone’s side has scored 12 goals allowing 2 while Ancelotti’s teams has scored 15 allowing only 1 in 5 games. Thus, the sports betting experts pay attention to the fact that both teams have a solid defense and will play carefully.

On the basis of the above analysis and head-to-head statistics, it is fair that the bookmakers do not name a clear favorite, although an away team has a small advantage: Atletico Madrid – 3,15, Draw – 3,25, Bayern Munich – 2,50. With Carlo Ancelotti Bayern is playing in a more pragmatic way than earlier. Also, given the fact that defense is one of the strongest points of these two teams it is recommended to bet either on “Total Goals under 2,5” (1,61) or on “Total Goals under 2,25” (1,79). Apart from that, you can try to bet on “Atletico Madrid (draw – no bet)” (2,17) as Atleti’s last home loss dates back to the 27th of January.
