Club World Cup semi-final, 7.30pm, Agadir

BAYERN MUNICH launch their bid for the Club World Cup title tonight with what should be a comfortable win against Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Pep Guardiola has won the tournament twice with Barcelona and wants his men to treat this semi-final in Agadir, Morocco seriously.

I have my doubts about betting on this tournament but a couple of factors to point me towards Bayern on the handicaps – they are too short just to win at 1-9 with Paddy Power.

Firstly, the Bundesliga goes into winter shutdown mode after this weekend so Bayern can relax and treat this as a bit of a holiday. Secondly, all their first-team stars will feature, except, injured Arjen Robben, and all will be stripped for the game.

Marcello Lippi's Evergrande side did well to beat Al Ahly 2-0 in the quarter-finals on Saturday but are probably no better than a mid-table Championship side.

Guangzhou have some decent players, including South Americans Muriqui, Elkeson and Dario Conca, but a clash with the European champions is not one they're going to relish.

Bayern could probably win by as many as they like but they'e unlikely to embarrass the Chinese so a 3-0 or 4-0 is the likely outcome. I'll be on Bayern -2 at 4-5 with Betfred and -3 at 15-8 with bet365.

Before betting on first scorer or anytime scorer check the starting line-up. There is a suggestion Claudio Pizarro will be up front with Mario Mandzukic benched and Frank Ribery could start after missing last weekend's match with Hamburg.

If Ballon D'Or contender Ribery is in there I'll be on him at 5-1 at bet365 to break the deadlock. Pizarro is 4-1 with the same firm.

On the outrights Bayern are no bigger than 2-9 at sportingbet ahead of Atletico MG at 5-1 with bet365.

    I will be on Bayern -2 and I agree with your reasoning Mr F – they won’t underestimate them yet they are unlikely to hammer them for 90 minutes.

    Went for over 3.5 goals 13/20 wullie hill

  3. Davie-S 7 years ago

    Very insightful information their Mr F, i’m not really up on my Chinese fitba. Just in from work scratching around looking for some value bets, me thinks i will go with the -2 you suggest… “Xie’xie”

  4. Davie-S 7 years ago

    As you say Mr F Bayern “are unlikely to embarrass the chinese” 7/2 the tie Bayern -3 might be worth a wee cheeky fiver…

    everyone, stay well clear of 888 and any of thier companies its a shameful company and withdrawals take a month and during that time they allow you to reverse hoping youll put whatever winnings back, very imoral and unethical scumbag of a company

    • Sharon Mac 7 years ago

      Bwin as well, made numerous deposits and bets, when I withdrew- no poppy. Time passed, got in touch with customer services and works out, I had to send Id, to prove I was over 18!! No email or call to inform me of this. They were happy 2 take the money out.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Sharon, this is fairly standard practise to protect punters from identity fraud. I don’t see the problem – if you prove you are who you are the money will be paid.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      the tank, you can’t say that unless you want them to sue you. I will delete for your own good.

    “@livefootball: Bayern Munich XI vs Guangzhou: Neuer; Rafinha, Van Buyten, Boateng, Alaba; Lahm; Thiago, Kroos, Ribery, Gotze; Mandzukic”

  7. Davie-S 7 years ago

    Do you have the Guangzhou team Craig want to check if they are playing a strong eleven too.. hehe

    Pretty strong Bayern team just depends how they approach the game weather they go for goals or not…

  17. Greg Browning 7 years ago

    Full house on the cards Mr F – nice one :)

  18. swany 7 years ago

    Any chance of Oldham coming back from 1 down mr f?.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      swany, of course they can. 1-1 now

  19. Davie-S 7 years ago

    Swany i hope so iv’e just put a wee in-play double on Chelsea 1/1 and Oldham 11/2, been watching Oldham game it’s not unreasonable to think they can win it, just need that 1st goal…

  20. Hank 7 years ago

    Does anyone know who has been given the goal in the chelsea game? Lampard or own goal?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Hank, looks like it’s an OG but could change.

  21. Hank 7 years ago

    You seen it Mr.F? Hard one to call!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Hank, not seen it. Working and listening to Radio 5 – they reckon it was an OG.

  22. Madi 7 years ago

    Says lee cattermole on my fotmob app hank

    • Hank 7 years ago

      Madi. It was initially Lampards, then changed to O.G Cattermole. Lampards shot was from a yard out and on target then Cattermolle has slid in and may have got final touch but extremely hard to call!

  23. swany 7 years ago

    Cheers Davie S just had a wee single at 11/2 seen they have equalised fingers crossed, good luck.

  24. swany 7 years ago

    Cheers Mr F.

      A lot better than being down bro

    • raaljaca 7 years ago

      When you get that close and only one game beats you Davie it means your getting it nearly right selection wise. You are on the right track so keep it up and that £3 will become £300 soon enough mate.

  36. Davie-S 7 years ago
