With the kick-off of the UEFA Champions League group stage around the corner, fans of online sports betting are already thinking about possible matches and markets to make some money. In order to help you, we have picked a UCL game to make a few over 3.5 goals predictions.
On matchday 1, the current Champions Bayern Munich will welcome Atletico Madrid and it may be a match where we will see the ball into the back of the net constantly. So, before giving you over 3.5 tips for this match, let’s see how both clubs are doing this season so far.
It is still fresh in our memories the amazing 8-2 victory the Bavarians got over Barcelona in the Champions League last season. Apart from that, the club lifted another trophy of the competition and continues showing their supremacy in the German League.
This season, so far, Bayern have played 3 matches in the Bundesliga, winning 2 and losing one. The good news is that all of the matches had a great number of goals. Already on their debut they got an amazing 8-0 victory over Schalke 04.
Atletico could have made better in the last UEFA Champions League, or at least that was what many expected. After betting Liverpool, the Colchoneros became one of the favorites to win the 2019/20 edition of the competition, but it didn’t happen.
During this season, Atletico Madrid have played 3 matches in the Spanish La Liga, with 1 victory and 2 draws. In their debut match, something unusual happened. They were able to get a 6-1 victory over Granada. After that, two draws without goals.
Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid
Both teams have faced each other already in three different Champions League editions. The last one was in the 2016/17 semifinals, where the Bavarians left with the qualification for the final after a 1-0 victory in the first leg and a 2-1 win in the second.
Even though not many goals happened in this last confrontation, it may be a little different this season. Not only because Bayern have shown a lot of attacking power nowadays, but also because Atletico are trying to improve their way of playing and creating more chances of goal.
The betting bonus for this game are somehow good. Of course many may think that it is difficult to have many goals in Atletico’s matches. However, we think that this Bayern vs Atleti will be really interesting.
The bookmakers are offering odds from about 2.62 for more than 3.5 goals in the match. So, we believe it is worth taking some risks with this market.
