Betting Tip: Bayern Munich #2-1 @ 8/1 with williamhill

Bayern Munich are getting reacquainted with closest challengers from last season Wolfsburg this midweek, and boast a strong home record in this dance with wolves.

William Hill‘s terrific 8/1 price for Munich to record a narrow 2-1 victory appeals because Bayern are still missing a few key players through injury, but possess the requisite strength in depth to get the better of Die Wolfe once again.

In half of the last eight meetings in Munich between these two, the hosts have recorded that precise result; though there is the option of the safe bet of backing Bayern to win and both teams to score at top odds of 2/1 with the same bookmaker or Coral.

Such a wager would require a bigger stake, though, and there are a number of absences at both ends of the field that make 2-1 tasty enough on its own.

Pep Guardiola sees his defence weakened through missing Mehdi Benatia, Holger Badstuber and Jan Kirchoff, while experienced wide duo Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are also unavailable.

For Wolfsburg, it’s more about the supply line they’ve lost after cashing in on assists machine Kevin De Bruyne. He was undoubtedly key in their famous 4-1 win over Munich on their own patch last term, but is now at Manchester City.

That leaves the onus on Die Wolfe striker Bas Dost, a best-price 41/10 anytime scorer chance with 888Sport, and De Bruyne’s replacement Julian Draxler, 6/1 in that market with the same bookie, to take the game to their hosts.

Bayern have forward Thomas Muller in menacing form, with six in four Bundesliga starts, and rested him at the weekend. That means he’s already bagged two braces, plus another double in the Champions League, so Betfair’s 16/5 price on Muller scoring two goals or more again here should be considered.

With Robert Lewandowski, a tasty 10/3 with BetVictor to grab the opener, and Mario Gotze among their attacking armour, Munich can easily outscore Wolfsburg on home turf. Take that awesome 8/1 on a 2-1 result for Bayern.
