Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Bayern Munchen will be looking to build on a thrilling 7-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur when they take on Olympiakos Piraeus at Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki on Tuesday evening. The Bundesliga giants aim to cement top position in Group B, but beating the Thrylos in Piraeus is easier said than done. A man to watch in the away team will be Germany international Serge Gnabry, who scored four goals in the 7-2 crushing of Spurs.
The Greek side, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Crvena Zvezda in Belgrade. Olympiakos will be without suspended attacker Yassine Benzia against Bayern Munchen as the Algeria international was sent off in the last group game. Anyhow, the mighty Bavarians are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Athens and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.
Highlighted Player (Miguel Guerrero):
Born in Toledo, Spain on 12 July, 1990, Miguel Angel Guerrero started his senior career at Albacete. He played just two matches for Albacete, but he made no less than 60 appearances for the B team between 2009 and 2011.
In 2011 he joined Sporting Gijon B, but he started playing for the first team soon. On 19 August, 2012 Guerrero made his debut for the Asturians in Segunda Division, but he played no moer than 25 minutes in a 2-0 loss to Numancia. Five months later he scored his first goal for Sporting Gijon in a local derby against Real Oviedo.
After scoring 16 goals in 89 appearances for the club between 2012 and 2016, the Spanish attacker signed a two-year deal with Leganes, newly promoted to the Spanish top flight. Guerrero has a contract with Leganes which expires on 30 June, 2018. During his youth career he played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Getafe, Toledo and Rayo Vallecano.
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.
