Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid Preview, Champions League, Semi Final 2nd Leg, Tuesday 3rd May 2016

Bayern Munich head into this second leg match with it all to do having lost the first leg over at the Vicente de Calderon 1-0 last week courtesy of a well taken individual goal by Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez and with Bayern having failed to beat Monchengladbach at home over the weekend, the pressure is certainly starting to show.

Pep Guardiola made a costly mistake in my opinion at his choice of players to start that game last week over in Spain, both Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery having to make do with a place on the bench which didn’t help at all with any real service getting through to star striker Robert Lewandowski.

I expect both players to start this game though as with Atletico Madrid having looked very dangerous in that match last week, Bayern will need to score at least a couple to give them any chance of progressing through to the final against this well organised Altetico Madrid side.

Bayern Munich Team News:

The hosts will once again be without the services of Arjen Robben and Holger Badstuber as both players continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. There are also doubts over Jerome Boateng who is suffering from a groin strain and Sebastian Rode who is recovering from illness, both of these players will be given a late fitness test to see if either of them can be involved.

Franck Ribery and Thomas Muller are expected to start this game and as such the attacking line now looks much more threatening with Robert Lewandowski leading the attack up front and I definitely see Bayern Munich causing the Atletico Madrid defence much more problems in this game than they did in the 1st leg last week.

Atletico Madrid Team News:

The visitors have almost a full squad available to them but will be without the services of Tigao who is still receiving treatment for a broken leg injury. Diego Godin has recovered from his hamstring problem that kept him out of the 1st leg match and he could be thrust straight into the starting lineup for this one.

Antoine Greizmann and Fernando Torres will once again lead the attack up front and with both having looked dangerous in the 1-0 victory last week, the Bayern defence will have to be better than ever on Tuesday night if they are to keep them out.

Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid Head to Head Statistics:

Tuesday night’s game from the Allianz Arena will become only the 4th meeting between these two clubs over the years. Bayern Munich beat Atletico Madrid 4-0 in a replay to lift the European Cup back in 1974 having drawn the first match 1-1.

The 1st leg match last week was the first meeting between the two clubs since that final back in 1974 and Atletico Madrid made no mistake with home advantage winning the game 1-0.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

7 Goals have been scored in the previous 3 matches played between the two clubs over the years, which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.33.

Although 6 of those goals were socred in the two matches taking place back in 1974 it does suggest that this game on Tuesday night could see at least a couple of goals grace the back of the nets in this second leg match at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich are the clear odds on favourites with the online bookmakers to win this game at a current best price avaialble of 8/13 with Coral – Bet £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account but that does look a bit short considering they hardly troubled the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper in last weeks first leg affair.

Atletico Madrid will be in confident mood having played very well and won the first leg match last week and if they can put in a similar display in this game I can see them having a real chance of causing a huge upset on Tuesday night and their current best price available of 11/2 with BetVictor – Receive £50 Free Bets when Registering a New Account. does look good value here.

Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

I doubt very much that we will see Bayern manager Pep Guardiola making the same mistake as he did last week by resting some of his star players in this one as with a 1-0 defecit to overturn the hosts certainly have it all to do here and we all saw how well organised the Atletico Madrid defence was that night.

If Atletico Madrid were to score in this game and I think they have every chance of doing so, then I can’t see how Bayern Munich can rescue the tie as they would need to score at least three times and I just don’t see the Atletico Madrid defence giving up that many goals.

For me Bayern Munich lost this tie last week because of players like Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery both having been left out of the starting lineup and that decision could end up proving very costly for the hosts as with Bayern having failed to win at the weekend at home against Monchengladbach, the team morale will obviously be suffering.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score as although I do expect Atletico Madrid to sit deep and try to defend their 1-0 lead from the first leg, I can see them getting the odd chance on the counter attack and with the visitors having been very unlucky not to have scored more than one goal last week, I do think they can get at least one in this match.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller to score the first goal of the game as he will definitely have something to prove to his manager having been left out the starting lineup last week.
