TIP OF THE DAY: Arsenal – Bayern: Can the Gunners take advantage of the Bavarians’ crisis?

On Tuesday, the first quarterfinal matches of this year’s Champions League edition are scheduled, and this time we have analyzed the duel between Arsenal and Bayern Munich. The start of the match between the English and German representatives is scheduled for 9 pm.

Arsenal: Sparkling performances by the Gunners recently!

This season, Arsenal is playing at a very high level, and as things stand, it seems that the popular Gunners might even be the main favorites for the English Premier League title. Currently, Mikel Arteta’s charges are tied for first place on the table with the same number of points as Liverpool, but with a one-point advantage over third-placed City. Indeed, we seem to be witnessing one of the most interesting championship races in the last twenty years.

In their last five league matches, the team from London has achieved four victories and a draw, including an away game at Manchester City where there were no goals, which is certainly a great result, especially considering that Arsenal not so long ago defeated their other rival in the fight for the English title, Liverpool, with a score of 3:1. In the last round, Arteta’s men were better than Brighton in a very tough away game, winning the match with a convincing 0:3. Before that, the leader of the world’s top league celebrated a 2:0 victory at home against Luton.

Moreover, the Gunners are the team that has conceded the fewest goals in this championship so far, and in addition, they have scored the most goals this season. Therefore, we can generally say that Arsenal has been the most impressive team in this year’s edition of the English Premier League.

As for the Champions League, the English representative also had little trouble reaching the round of 16, having topped a group that included former finalists of the elite competition, PSV, Lens, and the current Europa League champions – Sevilla. In the round of 16, the English team managed to eliminate the not-so-easy Porto team after a better penalty shootout, thus setting up a duel against the German giant, who is playing one of their worst seasons in the last twenty years.

The first match will be played in London, giving a significant advantage to Arsenal’s footballers, who have been playing brilliantly at their stadium this season. Additionally, as we’ve already mentioned, Bayern is not having a great season, with the observation that the team has put all its bets on winning the Champions League trophy.

Bayern Munich: Are the Bavarians Saving Themselves for the Champions League?

We have mentioned several times that last season, the Bavarians reached their eleventh consecutive championship title with a bit of luck, largely thanks to Dortmund’s slip-up in the last round at home against Mainz. This allowed the German giant to capitalize and secure a new German championship title with an away win against Cologne. After this fortunate ending, Thomas Tuchel was given renewed confidence by the Bavarians, but it soon seemed to be a huge mistake.

At the start of the season, in the Super Cup final, Harry Kane and his teammates faced a real embarrassment against Leipzig, losing 0-3, with Dani Olmo scoring all three goals for the Bulls. This wasn’t the only embarrassment last year, as the former European champion was eliminated from the German Cup by a third-division team for the second consecutive year, this time by Saarbrücken.

What saved Tuchel’s job during those days were fairly good performances in the most prestigious European club competition. The team comfortably topped their Champions League group, which included Manchester United, Copenhagen, and Galatasaray, securing their place in the last 16 with two rounds to spare – the primary goal for the first part of the season.

In the round of 16, the German representative was paired against Italian side Lazio, which interestingly won the first leg 1-0 with an Immobile penalty. However, the return match was probably Bayern’s best game of the season, and despite the painful loss in the first match, Harry Kane and his teammates advanced to the quarterfinals without much trouble.

Regarding the Bundesliga, Germany will have a new champion after eleven years. Currently, the Bavarians are a whopping sixteen points behind league leaders Leverkusen, who need only one more win to secure their first-ever title. There is no doubt that the popular ‘Pharmacists’ will achieve this, possibly as early as the next round.

As for Bayern, Tuchel’s men have achieved two wins, two losses, and one draw in their last five league matches. In the previous round, the still reigning German champions were defeated away by Heidenheim, and before that, they lost at home to Borussia Dortmund 0-2. There is no doubt that the Bavarians have not played this poorly in the Bundesliga for a long time. However, it seems that their fans will forget all about this if their favorite team manages to win the Champions League title, which, we repeat, is a very difficult, perhaps even impossible task.

Our Betting Suggestions

Arsenal is playing exceptionally well this season, and it seems that at this moment, the team led by Mikel Arteta is the favorite in the tie against Bayern, which has been playing disastrously recently. Therefore, we highly recommend playing a home win (fr 1) for which the bookmaker Mozzartbet has prepared odds of 1.75.

Bayern’s defense has not been impressive so far this season, and it seems that the host could score two or more goals more easily than expected. Therefore, we suggest trying the t1 over 1.5 goals bet, for which Mozzartbet has set odds of 1.72.

Finally, it’s certain that Arsenal players will try to take advantage of playing this duel in front of their fans from the first minute, so expect aggressive attacks by the Gunners right from the start.
