Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Bayern Munchen will be looking to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Atletico Madrid when they face Lokomotiv Moscow in their second group game. The title holders are determined to defend their trophy, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Lokomotiv Moscow. Even though Serge Gnabry remains on the sidelines through illness (coronavirus), the Germans are seen as hot favourites to win Tuesday’s football match.
Alphonso Davies, who suffered an ankle injury in a 5-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend, is yet another absentee in the away team. The Russians, on the other hand, did well to hold Salzburg to a 2-2 draw win their Champions League opener, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Bayern Munchen. Since Serge Gnabry was not sorely missed in the 5-0 crushing of Atletico Madrid, away win should definitely be considered.
Highlighted Player (François Kamano):
Guinea international Francis Kamano is a flamboyant attacking midfielder who plays for the Ligue 1 side Bordeaux. Best fitted hugging the touchline on the left side of the pitch, Kamano is a versatile asset who covers a wide area and takes part in both defensive and attacking duties.
Francois Kamano likes to cut inside and break opposition lines with one-twos and short passes. Kamano started his career at Bastia in 2014 and moved to Bordeaux two years later. A Guinea international since 2015, Francois Kamano is a technically astute player who enjoys taking on players and dribbling his way through opposition.
Still a young footballer, Kamano has emerged as one of the key players for Bordeaux. He hit the ground running in the 2018/19 campaign and hopes to maintain it throughout the season to possibly secure a big-club move at the end of the term.
Highlighted Team (Bayern Munich):
Over the years Bayern Munich have established themselves as one of the most successful European clubs. The Stern des Sudens (Star of the South) are the dominant force in German football and it has to be noted that the Bavarians clinched their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016. Bayern Munich have won 18 German Cup trophies, while winning the Champions League (European Cup) five times.
The German giants clinched the Intercontinental Cup in 1976 and 2001, while lifting the FIFA Club World Cup trophy in 2013. Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 by eleven football players and their leader was Franz John. The Bavarians host their rivals at Allianz Arena (75,000), the stadium that was built in 2005.
Fellow Bavarian sides TSV 1860 Munchen 1860 and Nurnberg are regarded as Bayern Munich’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalry between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern is big as well. The likes of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthaus, Oliver Kahn, Gerd Muller and Giovane Elber are famous footballers who played for Bayern Munich in the past.
