Take a look at the best bets available for the Super Cup clash between Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg
Bayern Munich and Pep Guardiola may have their eyes on bigger prizes than the Super Cup this season, but will be eager to stop DFB Pokal champions Wolfsburg in their tracks before they get too big for their boots.
Die Wolfe may have been the surprise package last season, finishing second behind Bayern in the Bundesliga and even sneaking a shock victory over the German juggernauts before claiming their cup crown, but it should be back to business as usual here.
The men from Munich are never more dangerous than when they have a point to prove, so are odds-on favourites at 19/20 for victory in 90 minutes with 888.com. Stop to take a look at the Allianz Arena outfit’s record against the Lower Saxony side and you will see why.
Eight victories from their past nine battles across all competitions, with 24 goals racked up in those duels means Bayern are priced at 5/2 by Sky Bet to win to nil, or an even tastier 5/1 with the same bookies to triumph by three or more at the Volkswagen Arena.
Munich marksman Thomas Muller is the man to look out for, as the Germany goal machine has been on the losing side of this clash just once in 12 career games against these opponents, scoring six and assisting four.
Having hit home in half of his tussles with Die Wolfe, the dynamic dangerman is a superb 7/4 anytime scorer with Betfred, or 5/1 from BetVictor to draw first blood.
Customers can also take excellent odds of 2/1 with Betfred for exciting new signing Douglas Costa to make his mark anytime, or back prolific Polish poacher Robert Lewandowski, priced at 5/1 by Coral, to bag a brace or better.
Should punters prefer the underdog, Wolfsburg (3/1 winners with bet365 in normal time) are 6/4 to lift the trophy on home turf with Boylesports.
Die Wolfe have doubts over the fitness of Kevin De Bruyne, so Dutch dangerman Bas Dost (featured at 7/1 to be first scorer by 888.com) will need to step up and be counted, while De Bruyne’s former Chelsea teammate Andre Schurrle is 11/1 (also with 888.com) to have the final say.
