Online betting players saw Inter Milan end a 45-year run without a European crown with their win over Bayern Munich in last season’s Champions League final, but the Germans will get a chance to avenge that loss in this season’s knockout phases when the two clash in the next round. In a tie of two banged-up squads, look for Bayern Munich to get their revenge.

  • What: Soccer Betting
  • When: February 23rd, 2:45 PM ET (at Inter Milan); March 15th, 2:45 PM ET (at Bayern Munich)
  • Where: The San Siro (Inter Milan); Allianz Arena (Bayern Munich)
  • Pick: Bayern Munich

What’s On The Line

Last season’s Champions League finalists will meet in the first knockout stages, and Bayern would love to avenge their loss to the Italian champions, who have been through a remarkable half-season so far. Rafael Benitez left in December after just four months in Milan, and they’re well behind in the Seria A table. Bayern is in the same boat as they trail Borussia Dortmund by a huge margin in the Bundesliga, but they did have an impressive start to their Champions League campaign. Bayern would love to avenge their loss in the finals to Inter, but neither is playing their best soccer right now.

Offensive Matchups: Inter Bayern Betting

The goals have picked up since Leonardo, who played and managed for city rivals A.C. Milan, took over for Benitez as Inter has scored 12 goals in four games, and all four have ended up in victories. Samuel Eto’o is their main goal threat and after a slow start, Diego Milito is starting to come around. However, the team has suffered from an injury Wesley Sneijder, who was the engineer of their treble last season, and apparently he’d like to join former manager Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid. Without Sneijder, Inter plays a more direct system, while the Dutchman offers some creativity.

Like Inter, injuries have really hurt Bayern this year as they’ve gotten one sub appearance from Arjen Robben, who starred with Sneijder on the Dutch team in the World Cup and carried Bayern to last year’s run to the Champions League final. Miroslav Klose and Franck Ribery have also been hurt this season, and again, Klose may be close to signing with Real Madrid. This has left the goal-scoring to Mario Gomez, Thomas Muller and Bastian Schweinsteiger, who hasn’t shown the same form he did in South Africa for the German national team. But at least Schweinsteiger is still in the lineup for Bayern, and he’s the best player on the pitch if Sneijder isn’t there.

Betting Edge: Bayern Munich

Defensive Matchups: Inter Bayern Betting

Under Mourinho, Inter was a fortress, but as of January 18th, Inter hadn’t kept a clean sheet in Serie A since October 29th. Keeper Julio Cesar has been in and out with injury, which has hurt them a lot, and Lucio has really been the only consistent defender at the back. Maicon hasn’t been the same since Tottenham’s Gareth Bale destroyed him back in November, but the world’s best right back is coming around. The big thing for Inter is the health of Cesar, who was rumored to be leaving, but he’s been their constant and without him, Inter’s communication suffers along the back line.

22-year-old Thomas Kraft is now the No.1 guy in the Bayern goal after Hans-Jorg Butt struggled, and maybe this is the spark that they need at the back. Bayern’s defensive problems come from consistency; one day, they can put up a clean sheet and then the next day, give up three goals. They may also be without defensive midfielder Mark van Bommel, who will likely move away from the club during the January transfer window. Injuries have made Phillip Lahm indispensable as everyone else has ended up on the trainer’s table at one point.

Betting Edge: Draw

Notable Injuries: Inter Bayern Betting

Inter’s injuries start with Sneijder (thigh) and Cesar (leg), two massive parts of last season’s treble-winning team, and both seem to be lingering injuries, so we don’t know if they’ll take part in this two-legged tie.

Ribery (knee) hits the injury list, while Robben (hamstring) has just returned, but he has to be watched since he seems to always be hurt or the best player in Germany, one or the other. Klose (thigh) has been off and on this season.

Edge: Draw

Outlook And Pick: Inter Bayern Betting

With both teams slumping, it’s tough to say who will be favored heading into this matchup. Inter is improving under Leonardo, while Bayern has some questions to answer by the end of the transfer window. A lot of this will come down to the availability of Sneijder, who makes Inter so much better with his midfield play, and he creates space for Eto’o, who doesn’t need much as it is. Both teams have been uncharacteristically shaky at the back, which means the holes are there for teams to exploit, and it’s up to the managers to find those holes. However, the return of Robben gives Bayern the edge, and Ribery could be there as well. Take Bayern Munich to avenge their loss with a sports betting win.

Todd’s Pick: Bayern Munich
