Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 10/11 with ladbrokes

You might think that this Champions League tie looks nicely poised after Bayern’s slender 1-0 win at the Allianz Arena last week, although that is a much better scoreline than it looks on first glance.

Not conceding an away goal is a pretty good thing in European competitions, especially if you’re the German champions with the potential of finding the net and with plenty of experience in this situation.

Benfica have a tricky situation therefore. They might only be trailing 1-0 and it’s been nine straight victories with the exception of that defeat in Munich last week.

However, they can’t concede against Bayern on Wednesday night. That would mean they need to score three times against a team who warmed up for this clash with a 3-1 triumph at Stuttgart.

Philipp Lahm, Thomas Muller, Douglas Costa and Thiago were all on the bench for that clash, with Benfica caught in two minds as to how to approach this clash.

Therefore, we should expect the game to be low-scoring. Getting to half-time goalless would suit the Portuguese side who will aim to get this tie to extra-time through winning 1-0 and hope they can settle things in extra-time and penalties.

Bayern know a draw or better will send them through and will bide their time accordingly.
