Bayern Munich v AEK Athens Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Having held out until the second half in their European matches so far, Al Hain-Cole is backing Ouzounidis’ men to make the goalmouth action wait

Bayern Munich will be looking for their first Champions League home win in four matches when they take on AEK Athens on Wednesday.

Die Roten have not come out on top at the Allianz Arena since their last 16 victory over Besiktas in February, losing to Real Madrid and drawing with Sevilla and Ajax since then.

Latest Odds

However, having run out comfortable 2-0 winners in the reverse fixture in Greece two weeks ago, they are 1/12 (1.08) favourites with bet365 to return to winning ways in their own back yard in this one.

Marinos Ouzounidis’ team are without a win in 23 European away matches, and are massive 33/1 (34.00) outsiders to pull off a shock victory here, or 12/1 (13.00) to earn a creditable draw.

Team News

Thiago Alcantara, Kingsley Coman and Corentin Tolisso are all unavailable through injury, although Mats Hummels is in line for a return from his own lay-off after being named as a substitute in Saturday’s draw with Freiburg.

Helder Lopes and Marko Livaja are both suspended, while Anastasios Bakasetas and Michalis Bakakis are doubtful for the guests.

Late action

Although the result was never in doubt, Niko Kovac’s team were forced to wait until the second half for a breakthrough in their 2-0 victory at the Olympic Stadium.

This has been a recurring trend during this European campaign for the Yellow-Blacks, who have conceded prior to the break in just two of their seven fixtures so far, although scored only three times themselves in that period.

Predictions

With AEK bound to sit deep and attempt to frustrate, odds of 20/21 (1.95) offer solid value on the majority of the goal-scoring action unfolding in the second half for their seventh consecutive European game and Bayern’s fifth fixture in six.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
