Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich match preview and betting tips 28 Sep 2016

Last season they met in a direct clash for a place in the Champions League final.

Atletico was the team who won. Now they meet in the group stages of the tournament. The place is Estadio Vicente Calderon and it’s time to watch Atletico Madrid against Bayern Munich once again.

Arguably these are the two teams from Group D, who are clear favourites to win it and qualify for the next phase of the tournament. The question is - who will finish first? Both teams started their participation in the competition with three points, so the clash in Madrid could tell us a lot about how everything in this group will develop in near future.

It’s also interesting to note that this is going to be the first big test for Carlo Ancelotti in Europe, since he took the reigns in Bayern during the summer. The Italian manager started his career in Germany in a perfect way, but now he will have to meet another world class manager like Diego Simeone. Surely we should expect a magnificent tactical battle between two of the best coaches on the planet at this moment.

Atletio are injury-free for this game, with only Tiago Mendes, Miguel Angel Moya and Alessio Cerci having problems. But they are not key players in Simeone’s squad anyway, so it’s not a big problem for the Argentine manager.

Carlo Ancelotti also has an almost full squad to choose his players from. The only injured ones are Holger Badstuber and Douglas Costa, but the Italian tactician has more than enough options for replacements.

Prediction: This is a difficult game to predict, because Atletico are traditionally a very strong performer in the Champions League with Diego Simeone on helm. It’s very difficult to beat this team in the Champions League. On the other hand, Bayern look incredibly since the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti and they are scoring goals for fun. The draw is a good choice for a bet with this game, mainly because the game looks really balanced in every aspect
