Manchester City and Bayern Munich have met four times in the last three years with both teams having won twice each but it’s last season’s meetings that perhaps offer the best clues about how things will pan out as the two renew hostilities in the Allianz Arena.
The pair shared nine goals across their clashes last term and there’s every reason to believe there will be another glut in this one.
Neither has particularly convinced in the season’s early exchanges for starters while both sides can boast an abundance of attacking talent and key Bayern defender Holger Badstuber will sit the match out.
Boylesports’ 3/4 for both teams to score looks about right then, the same firm mark 8/11 against a tally of more than 2.5 goals in the contest but it’s their 7/4 about the total being higher than 3.5 that really stands out in the circumstances.
However, a cast-iron case can be made for none of those outcomes and again it’s where goals are concerned that the value appears.
With City set to strike against a weakened Munich rearguard it might pay to have their chief goal threat on your side and Skybet quote Sergio Aguero at a chunky 11/4 to notch at any time.
