Bayern Munich v Real Madrid Betting Special: Usual suspects to lead charge for goals

Robert Lewandowski leads the goalscorers market, but with his fitness in question we think his opposite number for Los Blancos offers value

Wednesday evening will see the 23rd meeting between these two sides in Europe's premier club competition, making it the most contested fixture in the history of the tournament.

There have been some memorable encounters in the past with Real Madrid's last visit to Bavaria bringing a 4-0 victory which remains Bayern's biggest ever home defeat in Europe. On that April evening in 2014,

Cristiano Ronaldo got on the scoresheet twice on his way to record a record breaking haul of 17 goals in that particular edition of the tournament. Yet the top scorer in the history of the Champions League has gone 613 minutes without a goal in the competition and he will be desperate to end that mini drought at the Allianz Arena. Bet365 offer the current Ballon D'Or holder at 6/5 (2.20) to score at anytime.

Another man who has fond memories of scoring at Allianz Arena is Sergio Ramos with the Real Madrid captain netting twice in his side's previous visit to the capital of Bavaria. With 10 goals scored, Ramos is enjoying his best ever season in front of  goal and his last six goals in this competition have all come in the knockout stages.

The centre-back is offered at 17/2 (9.50) to score at anytime and at 25/1 (26.00) to open the scoring as he did three years ago.

Perhaps the best value bet for the visitors, however, is backing Karim Benzema to score at 13/8 (2.63) with the Frenchman boasting a special affinity with this competition. Benzema is Madrid's top scorer this season in the Champions League with five goals and his overall record is 51 strikes in 90 appearances in the tournament including the only goal of the game when the sides met at the Bernabeu three years ago. 

Elsewhere, Arjen Robben - who scored in both legs of Bayern's win over Arsenal in the previous round - is available at 6/4 (2.50) to score against his former employers and Xabi Alonso, who enjoyed five seasons at the Bernabeu, can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) to score his first Champions League goal of the season.
