Liverpool – Bayern M, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LIVERPOOL - BAYERN
Liverpool had their last game 10 days ago and in the meantime they made a second camp this year after getting out of FA Cup this time in Spain. Reds, unfortunately, should also think of a key clash with United at the end of the weekend at Old Trafford, but Klopp probably has prepared his team well to play both matches at top-level and win them.
Bayern have suffered great difficulties in their last match against Augsburg and for now they have not shown the performance that is expected of them. Bayern are not permanent, but hesitant and their good results are sometimes not telling the truth, because, yes, they win, but they are not at the level they are required to. The Augsburg coach said he told his team that at the start of the match Kimmich will move forward and they should attack his area, after which Augsburg led 1-0 in the second minute and the attack was in that zone exaclty. It’s about Bayern’s childish mistakes in defense.
Liverpool has huge defensive problems, with Fabinho probably partnering with Matip in the center because the Cameroonian is the only available defender for this fight. Bayern must take advantage of this, but the defense of the Bavarians is very weak. They are slow and are going far ahead, which can be a huge problem with Liverpool, especially if they are caught on the back after losing the ball, and Kovac expects a pretty much possession for Bayern and so we think a quick goal will fall shortly after which game will open. Prediction – BTTS at 1.56.
- Liverpool have scored 20 goals in their last 6 home games
- The last 4 away games of Bayern are BTTS + over 2.5 goals
- Bayern have scored at least 2 goals in 12 of their last 13 away games
