Bayern Munich hosts Benfica at the Allianz Arena
Looking to keep themselves on top of the group, Bayern Munich hosts Benfica at the Allianz Arena in the Bavarian capital. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this clash.
Right now Bayern Munich are first in Group E with 10 points won so far. Niko Kovac’ boys had a two points advantage in front of the 2nd Ajax, which means that the Bavarians must win against Benfica in order to be sure that they will remain on top.
So far Bayern are unbeaten in the group, having a record of 3 wins and 1 draw. The 2012 winners only made a mistake against Ajax at the Allianz Arena, but they were flawless in the other three matches in the group. In their last game Bayern enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win against AEK at home, with goals scord by the polish superstar Robert Lewandowski.
We can’t say that Bayern are having much of a fun time since the start of the season. Yes – they are first in their Champions League group, but in the Bundesliga the Bavarians are 9 points behind the leader Borussia Dortmund. Which is really unacceptable.
This is the reason why many people doubt that the head coach Niko Kovac has a future in the club. Last season the Croatian tactician won the DFB Pokal with Eintracht and signed with FC Hollywood, but so far his performance is not impressive.
Benfica on the other hand are 3rd in this group with 4 points won. The Portuguese club is 4 points behind the 2nd Ajax, so they have a pretty slim chance to finish 2nd. Well, they will have a chance if they beat Bayern in Munich, but it really looks very difficult.
That’s our thoughts about the Bayern Munich – Benfica clash in the Champions League in our winning soccer predictions.
