Anderlecht vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Betting tips
The fifth matchday in the Champions League group stage is coming up! In Group B, RSC Anderlecht and FC Bayern München meet. Munich has to travel to Brussels and will be welcomed in the Constant Vanden Stock stadium by some 25,000 frenetic fans. The starting position in this game is clear: The guest from Germany is the clear favorite. Anderlecht have played a very bad Champions League season so far – currently holding zero points, no goals scored and 15 goals conceded. Bayern Munich, however, managed to qualify in the previous round for the knockout stages. In the national leagues both teams are currently spoiled by success. The Belgians won three of the last four games and also drew. The Munich have won since the appointment of Jupp Heynckes all games (including penalties in the Cup against RB Leipzig).
The first leg in Munich on Matchday 1 of the group stage ended with a 3-0 victory for the hosts.
After the RSC Anderlecht won the 34th championship title in the preseason, the champion started very badly in the new season 2017/18. Anderlecht scored only five points in the first five rounds, which was unsatisfactory for the traditional club from Brussels. Also in the first game of the Champions League group stage hailed it a 3: 0 defeat against the upcoming opponent Bayern Munich. In the second match of the premier class, the Belgians also went with a 0-3 defeat against Celtic Glasgow as losers from the square, but in the national championship, the team could stabilize again. Since the sixth round of the RSC Anderlecht suffered only one more defeat (0: 1 against KRC Genk). Elsewhere, the team took seven wins and two draws and is thus ranked after the 15th matchday with 28 points in third place of the table, behind RSC Charleroi and Bruges.
For the upcoming match against Bayern Munich is also the home table of interest, since the game is played in Belgium and this table certainly provides information about whether the home advantage is a major factor. The Constant Vanden Stock Stadium can not be called a “fortress” this season. From seven home games, the RSC Anderlecht took only 13 points and is in this rating only in sixth place.
As mentioned before, it runs less round in the premier class. Four defeats from four games and a goal difference of -15 speak a clear language. Anderlecht did not manage to score in any of these four games.
The coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck has no complaints for the upcoming match.
Bayern Munich :
Since Jupp Heynckes was re-installed as coach of FC Bayern Munich, it is running according to plan for the German record champions. All eight Bayern games under Heynckes were won. In the league Bayern ranked now at the top of the table, in the Cup they prevailed against RB Leipzig on penalties and also in the Champions League they made the entry into the second round. Due to a weakening direct competition in the national league, the Munich built in the last round the lead on six points and are now at a total of 29 points. Most recently, they prevailed in the home game against the surprisingly strong FC Augsburg with a sovereign 3: 0, while both Dortmund and Leipzig have left points.
In the Champions League, the Munich ranked with nine points from four games in second place in Group B. At the top of the table lies with the maximum points Paris SG, against which the FC Bayern Munich went down in the first leg 3-0. On the final day of the game, the return match will take place, where the reigning Bayern will reciprocate and want to bag the group victory. However, it is probably necessary to win against Anderlecht for the intended group victory. PSG takes a clear role in the parallel against Celtic Glasgow and anything but a win for the French in their current form would be a surprise.
In all likelihood, Frank Ribery, Thomas Müller and Kingsley Coman will not be used for the match against Anderlecht. Although Ribery and Müller are back in the team training, but this game comes too soon after surviving injuries. Coman is currently suffering from a tendon injury and will most likely fail. Thiago suffered a knee injury in the final match against Augsburg but could be an option against Anderlecht.
