Bayern Munich-Viktoria Plzen Betting Preview: Champions set to crush Czechs

The Bavarians have won each of their last seven European ties and our tipster expects them to cruise to a high-scoring win over Pavel Vrba's side
Bayern Munich continue the defence of their Champions League crown when they play host to Viktoria Plzen at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

Pep Guardiola’s men have won each of their last seven matches in this competition and can be backed at just 1/20 (1.05) with Coral to claim another victory here.

Plzen have suffered back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and CSKA Moscow, respectively, in this season's competition and Pavel Vrba’s men will pull off one of the biggest upsets in Champions League history should they beat Bayern in Bavaria.

The enormity of the task facing Plzen is reflected in their price, with Coral offering a massive 33/1 (34.0) for an away victory here, while the draw is rated as a 10/1 (11.0) chance with the same firm.

Pep Guardiola’s men were in scintillating form as they cruised to a 3-1 victory over Manchester City in their last Champions League tie and, should they repeat that form here, they are certain to record an emphatic victory against Plzen.

Pavel Vrba’s men have conceded three goals in each of their opening two Champions League ties and it is likely to be a long night for the Czech side against the European champions.

With that in mind, the 8/11 (1.73) quote from Coral for Bayern (-2) in the handicap market looks to be a solid selection and is likely to prove popular with punters while the 5/6 (1.83) quote from the same firm for Bayern to win both halves looks to be tremendous value here.

This contest looks to exhibit all the signs of a complete mismatch and, therefore, the 23/20 (2.15) quote from Coral for the hosts to score four or more goals looks to represent decent value.

Those seeking to squeeze further value from this contest should snap up the supremely generous even money (2.0) quote from Coral for Pep Guardiola’s men to score two or more goals inside the opening 45 minutes on Wednesday.

This selection would have paid dividends when Bayern claimed a 3-0 victory over CSKA Moscow on home soil last month and, given the gulf in class between the sides, it could prove a profitable play once again on Wednesday.
