Bayern Munich vs Dynamo KievUEFA Champions League, KO: 20:00 Sep 29, 2021, Allianz Arena
BAYERN MUNICH will be targeting back-to-back wins in Champions League Group E when they entertain Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday night.
The German giants followed up their 2019-20 Champions League triumph with last season's disappointing quarter-finals exit at the hands of PSG.
However, Julian Nagelsmann’s hugely-talented team hit the ground running in Group E by romping to a 3-0 win at beleaguered Barcelona on match day one.
The Bavarians have also made an unbeaten start to the defence of their Bundesliga crown and they will be keen to tighten their grip at the top of their section when they return to continental duty this midweek.
The battle for third-place is likely to be between Dynamo Kiev and Benfica, with the aforementioned pair playing out a goalless draw on the opening night of the pool.
Mircea Lucuescu's men extended their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-0 victory at Rukh Vynnyky on Saturday, but a bout with big-hitters Bayern will undoubtedly represent their toughest game of the group.
Bayern Munich have won 20 of their last 22 Champions League matches and a home win is heavily fancied at 1/9 with SBK.
Dynamo Kiev triumphed the last time these two clubs crossed paths back in 2000 but a repeat of that outcome on Wednesday night is a whopping 31/1 (SBK) while the draw is also deemed unlikely at 13/1 (SBK) with the same bookmaker.
This fixture feels like a massive Champions League mismatch and it's therefore a case of having to get creative to eke out a decent price on a Bayern Munich win.
I'll therefore head to the Bet Builder market and combine Bayern Munich half time/full time, Bayern to score over zero second half goals and Robert Lewandowski to score anytime, a backable 4/5 shot at Bet 365.
This is the type of assignment that Bayern's big red machine have become particularly efficient in dealing with – Die Roten have romped to three points in 11 of their last 12 group stage fixtures.
Germany's traditional flat-track bullies appear to be running away with the Bundesliga title already, with FC Hollywood triumphing in each of their last five German top-flight fixtures and notching a lofty 22 goals in the process.
Star striker Robert Lewandowski has already reached double figures for goals this season and the prolific Pole looks primed to add to that tally against a Dynamo Kiev side that shipped three goals against Shakhtar Donetsk in last week's Ukrainian Super Cup final.
With all things considered, coupled with the fact the aforementioned combination has clicked in four of Bayern's last five outings, I'm happy to side with the same formula at the Allianz Arena this midweek.
That train of thought could also see value lie with the 10/11 on offer with PaddyPower for Bayern Munich to win, Bayern Munich to take the most corners and Dynamo Kiev to receive the most cards.
Julian Nagelsmann’s star-studded team tend to dominate possession for long stages at their Bavarian base so the above-mentioned same game multiple looks like a nice way of trying to squeeze some value out of what should be a routine stroll to victory for Die Roten.
