Bayern thumped Arsenal 10-2 on aggregate in the last round whilst Real were also comfy 6-2 winners over Napoli. Since then Real have consolidated their position at the top of La Liga, whilst Bayern are away and gone at the top of the Bundesliga and warmed up for this clash with an impressive 4-1 home win over Dortmund at the weekend.
Bayern have won 15 of 16 unbeaten Champions League home games since 2014/15, leading at the break in 12 of these and scoring 56 goals across them (3.5 gpg). They’ve won eight of nine at home to sides we have ranked in Europe’s top-10 over that period, though they kept just three clean sheets in these, with five seeing more than three goals.
Real have won only five of their last 12 Champions League away games and whilst they kept four clean sheets in their six road games last term during their winning campaign, they’ve conceded seven goals in their four matches this time around. As a result, Over 3.5 Goals is certainly worth consideration here at 2.4, but we’re going to make Bayern to Win and Both Teams to Score our standout selection.
