UEFA Champions League Betting Preview - Bayern Munich vs Juventus

by Tom Allen

Bayern Munich vs Juventus

The standout tie of the round in the Champions League quarter-finals and the standout value too with Bayern Munich opposable at the prices.

These two great clubs have been among the best performers in European club competition this term and it would have been a contest worthy of May's Wembley final.

Alas they meet in the last eight but whichever side emerges unscathed will be perfectly teed up to go all the way and both are certainly capable of lifting the trophy.

Sitting atop of the Bundesliga and Serie A respectively, Bayern Munich and Juventus have dominated their domestic leagues this term and it will be fascinating to see how this clash unfolds over two legs.

Bayern, who can seal the German title in the coming weeks such is their advantage over Borussia Dortmund in second place, were nearly caught out in the last 16 when squandering a two-goal advantage against Arsenal but the hard work had been done in London and ultimately they advanced.

The 2-0 loss to the Gunners in Bavaria would have concerned Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes however and quite how they approach the first leg here will be interesting.

Juventus, unbeaten in eight Champions League matches this term, have won each of their previous five games in this competition without conceding a goal and contesting such a tough group has stood them in good stead.

Chelsea and Shakhtar provided stiff opposition early on and Juventus were supreme in thrashing Celtic 5-0 on aggregate in the opening round of the knockout stage.

In Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Claudio Marchisio, Juventus have a midfield with enough experience and poise to cope with anything the hosts throw at them while there is no doubting the Italians rearguard capabilities, shielding the magnificent Gigi Buffon in goal.

While unlikely, a goalless draw might just suit both sides on Tuesday but Juventus have enough about them going forward to nick a goal on the break and that would make life tough for Bayern Munich.

Juventus have found the net seven times in four away games in the Champions League so far this term and I cant have Bayern at no bigger than 4/6 in the match odds market despite their undoubted brilliant form since August.
