Sports news - Get €5 FreeBet - Bayern Munich have got an ideal opportunity to confirm their spot place in the UEFA Champions League round of top 16 if they defeat the Olympiacos tonight, and they have a high chance to be led by Robert Lewandowski. This is the second time both the teams are meeting this year. After dismissal of Niko Kovač’s and not so impressive performance of the team, the coach Hansi Flick will be striving his best to get a victory. However, there is one note-worthy edge; the match will be held in the Allianz Arena. Indeed, Bayern has demonstrated mediocre performance at home, but the burden will be on them to come all guns raging to eliminate doubt about their credentials being Champions League hopefuls. They must also demonstrate big-time as the management and the fans both have criticized their lousy way of play in the last games.
Olympiacos, though, are at the top of the Greek Super League; however, they failed to win any of their last 11 matches this session, wherein losing 9 out of 11. Aside from the prolonged absence of Lazaros Christodoulopoulos, Pape Abou Cisse and Konstantinos Fortounis, the coach Pedro Martins still claims to have a fully fit team. He may call Yassine Meriah at centre-back ahead of expert Avraam Papadopoulos, while Valbuena will definitely return to the opening line-up after missing a reverse fixture.
Olympiacos have demonstrated high spirit in the reverse fixture but they are in need to keep their hopes of rolling into the knockout stages alive. Pedro Martins' team was unbeaten in 10 European home matches until defeated by Bayern. Also, their record against the German opposition is not very impressive. Bayern may face some problems domestically but they have shown themselves good in the Champions League as of now. Many experts have marked them as favourites to win tonight but they don’t have a clean sheet in last 7 games in all matches, so Olympiacos are expected to nick a goal.
