Bayern Munich were stunned 1-0 by Basel in the first leg of the pair’s Champions League tie but the Bundesliga outfit remain odds-on at 1/2 with Betfred to qualify for the last eight at the expense of their Swiss opponents, bwin’s 9/5 outsiders to get the job done.
Jupp Heynckes’ men enjoy home advantage in the second leg and Stan James rate them at 2/9 to come out on top at the Allianz Arena, where a 2-0 victory, priced by William Hill at 13/2 would see the Bavarians progress.
Would-be Bayern backers might’ve been concerned by their recent form before the weekend, when they got their season back on track with a crushing 7-1 hammering of Hoffenheim and crucially that saw prolific front man Mario Gomez get back amongst the goals, helping himself to a hat trick.
The Germany international is just 13/5 via BetVictor to break the deadlock in this match but that could nevertheless be a better option than piling into the hosts to cruise it, especially as Basel are unbeaten in 17 outings.
Also looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit are Inter, who are a 2/1 shot with Blue Square to eliminate Marseille. Skybet quote the French side at 2/5 to get through following their narrow success at the Stade Velodrome a fortnight ago but they have suffered a dip in form of late and it could be worth taking a risk on Claudio Ranieri’s charges, who are even money at Ladbrokes to emerge victorious at the San Siro.
