Our football match prediction:
David faces Goliath at Allianz Arena on Matchday 32. Thanks to a 6-0 win over Wolfsburg the mighty Bavarians clinched the Bundesliga title, but they now aim to put icing on the cake on yet another successful season. Carlo Ancelotti’s men were more than unfortunate not to eliminate Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals, but they managed to defend the domestic trophy and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Darmstadt. Bayern Munich are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will roll over the rock-bottom team. The Lilywhites have been producing thrilling displays of late, but they should have found their best form earlier. Darmstadt are nine points behind 16th-placed Hamburger ahead of Matchday 32, meaning that they have nothing to play for in Saturday’s football match against the reigning champions.
