FC Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich are coming off a disappointing 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga. FC Hollywood haven’t been impressive in the last period, as they sacked Julian Nagelsmann due to poor results and signed Thomas Tuchel. The German coach hasn’t delivered yet, and the team is still not in good form, but they are in a must-win situation and should have a good game at home.

Manchester City have a bad record in the away matches in this year’s Champions League, and Pep Guardiola’s side should have a word about that in this game.

Bayern vs Manchester City Predictions
Manchester City to Win @ 2.50 (3/2)
Manchester City are looking like a team on a mission at the moment. They have a 10-game winning streak, and their last loss was against Tottenham on February 5th. Bayern Munich are weaker than ever this season and simply not on Manchester’s level right now.
The Champions League high odds for Bayern Munich in this game indicate how slim their chances are to qualify. Manchester City will be dangerous on the counterattack with their fast pace.
Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 1.55 (11/20)
Manchester City have had a lot of open games lately with a lot of goals. The Citizens have gone over the total in six straight matches, and they are averaging five goals per game in this period. Bayern Munich have also gone over the total in five of their last seven games.
Erling Haaland to Score @ 1.90 (9/10)
Erling Haaland has been a beast this season in all competitions for the Citizens. He is the Champions League’s top goal scorer with 11 goals. Haaland scored 13 goals in his last five starts, and he is in good form right now. Erling is also on penalty duty and will be well-rested for this game.
