Bayern Munich continue their DFB Pokal defence when they welcome Wolfsburg to Allianz Arena for Tuesday’s last 16 clash.

Carlo Ancelotti’s charges were left frustrated after being forced to settle for a share of the spoils from Saturday’s match against Schalke, but Bayern look likely to make a swift return to winning ways when they line up against Valerien Ismael’s side.

Bayern boast a remarkable record in this competition; the Bavarians have been beaten inside 90 minutes in just one of their last 31 DFB Pokal matches, with the German champions securing the silverware in three of the last four seasons.

Furthermore, Ancelotti’s men claimed a crushing 5-0 win when these two teams locked horns in Munich in December and, as such, it is little surprise that Bayern are available at just 3/20 (1.15) with Betfair Sportsbook to secure their place in the last eight of the competition with a win inside 90 minutes.

Wolfsburg are battling to beat the drop from the Bundesliga and preserving their place in the top tier of German football is undoubtedly their priority this term, but Ismael’s charges can be backed at a chunky 14/1 (15.0) with Betfair Sportsbook to claim a famous victory, while the odds compilers offer 5/1 (6.0) that this tie remains deadlocked at the end of 90 minutes.

The Bavarians have won each of their last 17 competitive home matches against Wolfsburg in all competitions, scoring 10 in the last two meetings between the teams in Munich and Betfair Sportsbook offer a tempting even money (2.0) quote that more than three goals are scored when the rivalry is renewed.

Bayern have conceded in each of their three matches since returning from the winter break and the Betfair Sportsbook offer 10/11 (1.91) that both teams are on target in this tie, while the same firm go 8/5 (2.60) that Ancelotti’s team come out on top in a game in which there are goals at both ends.

The defending champions are deservedly strong favourites to further extend their hugely impressive record in this competition by winning this one, but there have been goals at both ends in six of the last eight meetings between these teams and, so, value lies in backing Ancelotti's team to progress from a tie in which both teams find the target.

Punters, therefore, are advised to back both teams to score and Bayern Munich to win at Betfair Sportsbook’s generous 8/5 (2.60) quote.

Both teams to score and Bayern Munich to win at 8/5 (2.60) for a 2pt stake with Betfair Sportsbook
