It won’t just be a celebration for women on 8 March, the Champions League will return to us. Our experts have prepared their exclusive forecast for the Bayern-Salzburg match. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet app.
The Bavarians have slowed down
Bayern are followed closely by everyone, so any failure is perceived as a setback or sensation. The club leads the Bundesliga by 9 points over runners-up, with the chasing side having a game in hand. In the last round, the Bavarians drew a 1-1 draw at home to Bayer. A normally efficient Bayern scored just one goal in three of the last four meetings. Perhaps Nagelsmann is trying to strike a balance between attack and defence to concede less. Before the battle with the Bulls, the team has three personnel losses.
Salzburg are determined to put up a fight
The Bulls are in the habit of dominating the domestic scene, leading the Austrian league by 18 points. In the last round, they confidently beat Altex 4-0 at home, scoring three goals midway through the first half. Salzburg have no competition in Austria, so difficult encounters are clearly lacking. The battle against the Bavarians is a good test, although the chances of a final success are few. Seven players won’t be able to play due to injuries.
The Bavarians enjoyed a comfortable lead in the first leg, although they narrowly escaped defeat, tying the score at 1-1 in the final minute of regulation time only to put the winner to bed in the return leg.
As both opponents retain their chances of qualifying for the next round, a hard-fought battle is expected. The Bavarians are the obvious favourites here, although the German grande has not looked as formidable in recent matches as everyone is used to. We suggest to bet here on an exchange of goals, we should expect attacking football, although the cost of error is high.
