Crvena Zvezda welcomes Bayern Munich
Crvena Zvezda welcomes Bayern Munich at the Rajko Mitic Stadium in a match from Group B of the Champions League. We will give you our Champions League predictions for this fixture in the capital of Serbia.
Crvena Zvezda are trying to finish at least third in the group and progress to Europa League. Right now the Serbian team is third in the standings with 3 points, having two points advantage in front of the 4th Olympiakos. Meanwhile they are four points behind the second Tottenham Hotspur, but it’d be really surprising if they manage to overtake the English side.
The previous round of the Champions League didn’t bring much joy to Crvena Zvezda. The 1991 European champions hosted Tottenham, but the game ended with a convincing 4-0 win for the visitors. After the break Crvena Zvezda’s manager Vladan Milojevic looked for a change, but Jander, Canas and Boakye’s inclusion in the line-up didn’t lead to anything.
Bayern Munich are travelling to Belgrade with the idea to win this group. Right now they are leaders with 5 points advantage in front of Tottenham, so a win on Tuesday will mean first place for them.
Four wins from four games played – so far the Bavarians are perfect in the group. They have scored 15 goals so far, conceding just 4.
On November 6 Bayern Munich hosted Olympiakos and achieved a 2-0 win during the debut of the caretaking manager Hans-Dieter Flick. It was Robert Lewandowski and Ivan Perisic who scored the winning goals.
So far Hans-Dieter Flick is perfect since replacing the sacked Niko Kovac – three wins from three matches played. He’s going to manage the team at least to the winter break.
In our Champions League predictions we think that Bayern Munich will make a solid effort to win this group and officially win it. They are in a good shape right now, so they are strong favourites here.
