Manchester City vs Bayern Munich Betting Preview
Man City are currently fighting to get closer to Premier League leaders Arsenal. Following City's comfortable 4-1 victory at Southampton over the weekend, the Gunners have a six-lead margin, but The Citizens have one game in hand. Pep Guardiola's men are unbeaten in the last 12 matches (W10 D2) and have won 8 games in a row. Four goals at the weekend means they have found the net 31 times during this eight-game winning run. In the quarter-finals, Manchester City destroyed a Bundesliga outfit - after a 1-1 away draw against RB Leipzig, they won the return match 7-0 at Etihad.
Bayern Munich managed to take the Bundesliga top spot back from Borussia Dortmund after defeating Edin Terzic’s men 4-2 at Allianz Arena two weeks ago. Since then, the Bavarians have met Freiburg twice. In the first encounter, they were knocked out from the DFB Pokal after losing 2-1 at home. Last Saturday Thomas Tuchel's men avenged that defeat by winning 1-0 in Freiburg. As to Champions League, Bayern managed to knock PSG out in the last-16 round by winning both legs (1-0 in Paris and 2-0 in Munich).

Manchester City (3-2-4-1): Ederson; Akanji, Ruben Dias, Ake; Stones, Rodri; Bernardo Silva, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Grealish; Haaland
Pep Guardiola will be able to call upon a near-fully fit Man City squad for this clash as Phil Foden is the only missing player. The starting system will be a 3-2-4-1 in which Erling Haalnd will spearhead the attack. The likes of Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan will support the Norwegian while Rodri and John Stones will start in the middle of the park. At the back, Ederson's goal will be protected by Ruben Dias, Nathan Akè and Manuel Akani.
Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Pavard, De Ligt, Upamecano, Davies; Goretzka, Kimmich; Sane, Musiala, Coman; Muller
Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting is out through injury, meaning that Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry are in contention to start as lone forward. The likes of Kingsley Coman, Jamal Musiala and former City star Leroy Sanè will form the offensive midfield trio while Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka will anchor the midfield. At the back, Matthijs De Ligt is likely to partner Dayot Upamecano, with Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies as full-backs.
Manchester City vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips
Bayern Munich have won all eight Champions League games this season but they have been shaky at the back under Julian Nagelsmann - something that Tuchel is yet to fix.
Manchester City are firing all cylinders as shown by their recent winning streak and scoring form.
It will be a heavyweight clash between two offensive minded teams.
We expect plenty of goals but ultimately Man City will win this tie.
A 3-1 scoreline is our favorite option in the Correct Score market, with Haaland the obvious pick among the possible goalscorers.
