Viktoria Plzen-Bayern Munich Betting Preview: Defending champions set to enjoy easy victory

Pep Guardiola's men won 5-0 when these two sides met in Munich and our tipster expects the defending European champions to record another emphatic victory on Tuesday night
European champions Bayern Munich continue the defence of their Champions League crown when they travel to take on Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday night.

Pep Guardiola’s side ran out 5-0 winners when the two sides went head-to-head in Munich two weeks ago and, unsurprisingly, are red-hot favourites to enjoy another comfortable victory here.

Bayern are chalked up at just 1/8 (1.13) with William Hill to claim all three points while the home side can be backed at a chunky 16/1 (17.0) with the same firm to stun the German giants. The draw is rated as a 6/1 (7.0) chance with William Hill.

Pep Guardiola’s men are in outstanding form, having netted an impressive 32 goals in their last 11 matches in all competitions and are more than capable of getting amongst the goals again on Tuesday.

Plzen are currently second in the Czech Liga table but have won just two of their last six matches in all competitions.

Pavel Vrba’s men have been outclassed in the Champions League, having conceded 11 goals in their three group games thus far, and it is hard to imagine Plzen offering any real opposition to Pep Guardiola’s side here.

With that in mind, the chunky 21/20 (2.05) quote from William Hill for Bayern (-2) in the handicap market looks to represent tremendous value and should be snapped up accordingly by punters here.

The free-scoring European champions led 2-0 at half-time when these sides went head-to-head at Allianz Arena last month and the even money (2.0) quote from William Hill for at least two goals to have been scored by half-time on Tuesday is hugely tempting too.

Pep Guardiola’s men have kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches in all competitions – against Plzen – but, given the gulf in class between these two sides, the generous 17/20 (1.85) quote from William Hill for Bayern to win to nil is outstanding value here.

The best bet, though, is William Hill’s generous 21/20 (2.05) quote for Bayern Munich (-2) to win in William Hill’s handicap market on Tuesday.
