Match: Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date:Tuesday, 3 May, 2016
Start time: 19:45 UK
Bayern Munich host Atletico Madrid in the semifinal second leg of the Champions League. The game at “Allianz Arena” is on Tuesday, May 3 from 19:45 in Munich.
Pep Guardiola’s team lost at “Vicente Calderon” 0:1 and will see if it is able to change things in the game, as against them faces one of the strongest defenses in Europe – that of Atletico.
Over the weekend, Bayern made it 1:1 at home with Borussia Monchengladbach thus failed to win the title in the Bundesliga, but it will certainly happen in the next round. Pep Guardiola rested many of their core players to keep them for the clash with “Los Rojiblancos”.
On Saturday, Atletico record fourth consecutive victory with 1:0 beating Rayo Vallecano at “Vicente Calderon”. So Diego Simeone’s men remain level on points with leaders Barcelona and expect error “Barcelona” to win the title in Primera. But now their attention is directed to the game at “Allianz Arena”, who will miss midfielder Tiago Mendes.
The Bavarians play very strong at home and despite the fact that defense is impressive lately, I expect Lewandowski and company to do everything in his power to break the defense of Atletico. The hosts have more class players and I think that will be enough to win, but whether it will be sufficient to qualify to final, we will find out on Tuesday night at “Allianz Arena”.
