Tottenham Hotspur Team News and Latest Form

Tottenham’s UEFA Champions League campaign began with a 2-2 draw at Olympiacos, making it Tottenham’s eighth UCL group stage match in ten to feature over 2.5 goals. Even so, this could be a close one, as four of Tottenham’s last five UCL home matches have separated the teams by less than 1.5 goals.

Encouragingly, the Lilywhites have a strong all-time home record in Champions League group-stage games against the top-seeded side in the group (W3, L1). Each of that quartet saw both teams score and produce over 3.5 total goals, and remarkably, all of the wins came via a 3-1 scoreline.

Son Heung-Min has scored a second-half opener for Tottenham in each of their last two UCL home wins. Tottenham’s last four Champions League home games have seen one team fail to score. Two of Tottenham’s last three UCL matches have seen a team go 2-0 up and fail to win.

Mauricio Pochettino will be without Giovani Lo Celso (hip) and Ryan Sessegnon (thigh).

Bayern Munich Team News and Latest Form

After a routine 3-0 win over Red Star Belgrade on UCL matchday one, Bayern Munich’s group stage record since the start of 2018/19 currently reads W5, D2. All of those victories came by a margin of over 1.5 goals, with four yielding a clean sheet and the last three saw them win both halves.

They travel to London on the back of an impressive unbeaten away record in the Champions League (W6, D3). In a testament to their staying power on hostile turf, four of their last five goals in those trips have arrived beyond the hour mark. Those later goals were coming in uninterrupted pairs across two games.

Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski is averaging a goal per match across his last four UCL away games, including a brace in Bayern’s previous group stage away game. Seven (W5, D2) of Bayern’s last nine Champions League away games have seen them open the scoring.

Niko Kovac cannot count on Jann-Fiete Arp (wrist) and Leon Goretzka (thigh) while Lucas Hernandez is listed as doubtful to face Tottenham with a knee injury.

These rivals have never met before in competitive matches, but they do face this summer in Audi Cup, and Spurs won on penalties to win the trophy.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Bayern Munich Champions League Betting Pick

Spurs are struggling to keep their net intact this season as they managed to do it in just two of their nine games so far. On the other hand, Bayern recorded a clean sheet in only one of their five road matches this year, so we can expect to see goals on both sides tonight. I am going to avoid betting on the full-time result here, and that’s why my Champions League Betting Pick for this encounter is BTTS and Over 2.5 goals at 1.80 (-125).
