Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Bayern Munich will travel to Greece for a game against the Greek champion Olympiakos. Bayern Munich and Olympiakos never played each other in a official game. Both teams are unbeaten this season and Olympiakos is currently on a 7 win streak. Title candidate Bayern Munich won't have any difficulties with Olympiakos because the difference in qualities simply is too big. The Olympiakos supporters can nothing do but hope for a good result.
Highlighted Player (Philipp Lahm):

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.

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.
