Bayern have reached, at least, the last eight of this competition in nine of the last 10 seasons. Furthermore, the German champions are unbeaten in eight Champions League ties away from home.
Liverpool reached the final of this competition last term and Jurgen Klopp's charges are desperate to go one better this time around. The Reds boast an enviable home record, for they are unbeaten in 11 Champions League matches at Anfield.
Liverpool are chalked up as bet365's even money (2.0) favourites to claim victory on home soil against the German champions.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was named in Liverpool's latest Champions League squad but remains out. Joe Gomez is also sidelined, but the Reds hope to have Dejan Lovren available. Virgil van Dijk is suspended.
Manuel Neuer returned from injury on Friday night and will captain the German champions on Merseyside. Kingsley Coman faces a late fitness test but Corentin Tolisso, Jerome Boateng and Arjen Robben will all miss out.
There have been at least four goals scored in each of Bayern's last six matches in all competitions and so the 6/4 (2.50) quote from bet365 for more than three goals on Tuesday could prove popular.
The same firm go 8/15 (1.53) that there are goals scored at both ends. That particular play would have landed in each of the last six games that Niko Kovac's charges have contested.
Furthermore, the Reds have scored at least three times in five of their last six matches at Anfield. The 8/11 (1.73) quote from bet365 for Klopp's men to score two or more goals, then, could offer a path to profit.
Liverpool often come flying out of the traps on an occasion as big as this one; indeed, the Reds have led by the break in each of their last six home Champions League victories.
The 6/4 (2.50) quote, then, for Liverpool to hold a half-time lead may represent superb value ahead of Tuesday's tussle.
