Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid Soccer Betting Predictions

Despite the very particular context of recent months, Bayern Munich has had a season of the anthology. Authors of an average start in the Bundesliga last year, the Bavarians were able to raise their level and give an unbearable pace to all their opponents in the Bundesliga to win an 8th consecutive league title as well as the National Cup. On their way, Robert Lewandowski’s teammates also imposed their domination on Europe by triumphing in the Final 8 of the Champions League last August by successively excluding FC Barcelona (8-2), Olympique Lyonnais (3 -0) and finally PSG in the final (1-0). Insatiable, they then won the European Super Cup title against Sevilla (2-1 AP) and then in the German Supercup against Dortmund (3-2). Back in the Bundesliga, Hans Dieter Flick’s men crushed Schalke 04 before conceding their first loss in 2020 against Hoffenheim (4-1). Undoubtedly shaken by this defeat, they came close to a new poor performance against Hertha Berlin before the break but they took advantage of a quadruple from Robert Lewandowski to finally win in stoppage time (4- 3). On Saturday, they regained a little confidence by winning more easily in front of Arminia Bielefeld (1-3).

Opposite, Atlético Madrid also got off to a bad start last season in La Liga. Subsequently, the Colchoneros were also able to react but not in the same proportions as their evening host and they had to settle for a place on the 3rd step of the podium behind Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. In the Champions League, Diego Simeone’s men struck a blow in the Round of 16 by releasing the defending champion, Liverpool, (1-0 in the first leg, 2-3 AP in the return) but they did could not go to the quarterfinals, released by Leipzig (2-1). Since the resumption of the season in La Liga, Luis Suarez’s new teammates first started well by walking on Granada (6-1). But then, they could not find the resources to overcome Huesca (0-0) then Villarreal (0-0). On Saturday, they returned to success by winning on Celta Vigo (0-2).

The staff for Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid

Bayern will not be able to field the excellent rookie Sané or the substitute defenders Richards and Kouassi. In excellent form for months, Robert Lewandowski scored 7 goals in the first 4 days of the championship, so 6 in the last two meetings. The indestructible Thomas Müller also remains on a double scored against the Arminia. Expelled on Saturday at Bielefeld, Corentin Tolisso could still start this meeting in the middle since he will be suspended next weekend.

Uncertain on Saturday, the titular defender Gimenez did not finally take part in the match against Celta Vigo and therefore has not played for a month. In addition, holders Renan Lodi and Saul were also absent on Saturday but they could make a comeback, unlike Croatian side Vrjsalko who is still injured. Arrived from Arsenal to replace midfielder Partey who left for the Gunners, Uruguayan midfielder Torrera played the entire meeting on Saturday. Offensively, his compatriot Luis Suarez stood out when he opened the scoring against Celta.
