Verdict: Both teams to score

Best Odds: 3/5

Bookmaker: Unibet

In a showdown between two European giants on Tuesday night, Bayern Munich will welcome Inter Milan to the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich

Starting with the hosts, while Bayern Munich might have shown some inconsistencies when opening the 2022/23 campaign, the German icons are now enjoying quite the purple patch. Already clinching top spot in Group C with plenty of time to spare, Julian Nagelsmann’s men should find the mood in their camp at a real high. Last seen over the weekend picking up a thumping 6-2 victory at home against Mainz, the former RB Leipzig boss has seen his side win each of their previous six matchups across all formats. Likewise, without a single defeat to their name since back on September 17th, Bayern have really found a free-scoring edge in the final third. In fact, with their recent purple patch highlighted by a stellar 3-0 romp away at Barcelona last week, it should be noted that Tuesday’s hosts have racked up 21 strikes on their six-match winning run.

Team News

Bayern Munich have confirmed that they will once again be without the quartet of Bouna Sarr, Lucas Hernandez, Manuel Neuer, Leroy Sane and Thomas Muller on Tuesday night.

Likewise, limping off against Mainz over the weekend with a knock, it looks like Dutch international defender Matthijs de Ligt is a real doubt here.

Inter Milan

As for the visitors, storming their way to a thumping 3-0 victory at home against Sampdoria over the weekend, Inter Milan find themselves in a very similar position to Tuesday’s opponents. While the former Italian champions might have come under some scrutiny when opening the 2022/23 campaign, Simone Inzaghi’s side have come roaring back. Booking their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s tournament, the ex-Lazio boss has seen his side continue to impress since returning from September’s international break. Now winning each of their last four matchups across all formats, Inter have also found their own clinical edge in the final third. Likewise, last seen on Champions League duties claiming a routine 4-0 romp against Viktoria Plzen, the midweek guests will be desperate to spring another upset here. It should also be noted, Inzaghi’s men have bagged 16 strikes in their previous five appearances.

Team News

Inter Milan will travel to Munich without the likes of Dalbert, Marcelo Brozovic and Gabriel Brazao on Tuesday night. Likewise, suffering another injury set back and set to miss this year’s World Cup, Romelu Lukaku will not feature here.

Former Manchester City striker Eden Dzeko will likely join Lautaro Martinez in attack.

Key Factors to Consider

    • When the two sides last faced off at the San Siro on September 9th, Bayern Munich picked up a 2-0 victory on foreign soil.
    • Likewise, Bayern have won three of their previous four meetings against Inter Milan across all competitions.
    • Along with winning each of their previous four matchups across all formats, Inter Milan have bagged 16 strikes in their previous five appearances.
    • On a similar note, a free-scoring Bayern Munich have now scored 21 strikes on their recent six-match winning run.
    • Each of Inter’s last four contests away from the San Siro have finished with both teams finding the net.

    Conclusion

    Watching Bayern Munich playing out an action-packed 6-2 win at home against Mainz a few days ago, neutrals from across Europe will be hoping for a similar affair on Tuesday night. With both sides already booking their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s tournament, we could have chances come thick and fast here. Although both Bayern and inter Milan might have shown some early-season worries when opening the 2022/23 campaign, the two European heavyweights have come roaring back in some style. Two sides who have found quite the clinical edge in the final third, it should also be noted that the Nerazzurri have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes away from the San Siro. With Inter seeing each of their previous four showdowns on the road finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome at the Allianz Arena.
