Bayern Munich have made a formidable start to the Champions League this term, and they will be looking to stretch their perfect record to four matches when they host Galatasaray on Wednesday. The German giants have scored a group-high of nine goals to this point, and they were 6-0 winners in their only previous home match against their Turkish rivals.
Bayern’s home record is staggering in the group stage of the Champions League, as they have taken a remarkable 82 points from a possible 84 available at the Allianz Arena. The only team to avoid defeat in Munich over that period was Ajax, who landed a draw in October 2018.
Galatasaray remain in a strong position to finish second in Group A, as their win at Man United last month could be pivotal. However, their away record in the competition would be a concern coming into this showdown, as they have landed just a single victory from their previous 18 on the road in the Champions League. But, that win did come in their previous match away from home against the Red Devils.
Galatasaray have often been involved in high-scoring matches in Germany, with their five trips to the nation seeing a total of 22 goals being scored. Meanwhile, they have won on two visits, with three of the matches ending in defeat. But, they remain heavy outsiders in the betting against Bayern Munich this week.
Bayern Munich vs Galatasaray Prediction
Bayern have been perfect in the Champions League to this point, and we don’t expect their 28-match unbeaten run in the group stage to come under threat this weekend. Therefore, we will be siding with the home side landing a comfortable success at the Allianz Arena.
