Bayern can make last-game statement


Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites (7/2) for the Champions League title and have been many pundits’ pick since their crushing 3-0 win over Bayern Munich on Matchday Two.

The two meet again in the final round of the group stage and although both have already qualified from Group B, it could be seen as a chance for Bayern in particular to make a statement.

Bayern will very rarely be odds-against in a game at the Allianz Arena, so the 6/4 on offer is very tempting – especially as revenge will be on their mind following what happened in the French capital.

In that game, Bayern (under then manager Carlo Ancelotti) were unfortunate to lose that heavily – having had 61% of possession and 18 corners compared to one for PSG.

The Ligue 1 leaders (9/5 to win in Munich) lost for the first time this season at the weekend, going down 2-1 at Strasbourg, and will they be able to lift their game having already qualified?

The crunch game of the evening takes place in London, where Chelsea play host to two-time runners-up Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge.

The Premier League champions came from behind to win away against Atletico back in September, but it could be a different story this time around.

Diego Simone’s men are on the brink of elimination and desperately need a win on Tuesday (Match Betting – Chelsea 11/10, Draw 5/2, Atletico 11/4) to stand any chance of qualification – they also need Roma to slip up at home to Qarabag.

Atletico are certainly capable of seeing off a Chelsea team (22/1 Outright Winner) that is likely to be much-changed from the weekend win over Newcastle, having already qualified from Group C.

The third and final pick for Tuesday are last season’s beaten finalists Juventus, who are 5/19 to beat Olympiakos in Group D.

The Serie A champions have so far had an up and down season by their standards, but they appear to be hitting form heading towards the New Year.

Max Allegri’s men won at title rivals Napoli last Friday and have kept clean sheets in each of their last three matches.

With Olympiakos already out and Juve needing a win to seal qualification, ‘The Old Lady’ know exactly what it takes to get the job down. The Italians are 4/7 to keep a clean sheet in Athens.
