Bayern Munich vs Villarreal: Our top betting tips

Bayern Munich's route to the Champions League semi-final was supposed to be straightforward when the quarter-final draw was made. Villarreal obviously never got that copy of the script. Can they German giants bounce back here to qualify? Find out with our Bayern Munich vs Villarreal match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Bayern to win with a handicap

Let's cut to the chase. Yes, Villarreal done a real job on Bayern Munich in the first leg but this game will be very different and, as such, we not only expect the Germans to win the match but we fancy them to do it with a -1 handicap; that would see them qualify as well. Bayern Munich are unbeaten in six home games and, notably, their last Champions League tie held a lot of symmetry with this one. They'd travelled in the first leg, picked up a less than excellent result before battering their opponent (Salzburg) 7-1 back on home soil. We won't see seven this time but they'll win it with room to spare.

Goals, goals and more goals

A look at Villarreal's away form would suggest that going over 3.5 goals for this bet is ambitious. We would suggest that Bayern Munich's home form is a better steer as to what might happen. They've gone over 3.5 goals in half of their last 10 home matches with a game average of 3.8 goals. Now, what does that aforementioned Villarreal away form look like in the respect of total goals? 30% of their last 10 have gone north of the 3.5 marker whist their game average sits at 3.0. Yes, that's not quite the level we're looking at for this tip but the odds plus the form combine for something that resembles value.
