Bayern Munich will be hoping to book their place in the Champions League semi-final when they take on Marseille in a fascinating quarter-final second-leg tie on Tuesday evening, as Bet365’s price for the away win at 12/1 is sure to attract plenty of support from punters.
The German giants secured a valuable 2-0 victory in the first-leg, meaning they are overwhelming favourites to progress to the final four. If Marseille are to take the game into extra-time, they need to score at least twice.
The form of Bayern doesn’t suggest this will happen though. They have won seven games in succession across all competitions and managed to defeat Nurnberg 1-0 in their only game since the quarter-final first-leg.
They are now only three points behind Borussia Dortmund in a race for the Bundesliga title is set to go down to the wire. Bayern certainly have a lot to play for in the remaining few weeks of the season.
It is the Champions League that gets their attention this week though as they look to continue their 100% winning record in European home matches this season.
As for Marseille, they will be aware that they have it all to do in this second-leg and they certainly need to turnaround their recent poor form. In total, they have lost eight of their last nine games across all competitions.

This has seen them drop to 9th in the Ligue 1 table, while they are all set to crash out of Europe if they don’t improve this week. In a sense, the French club need a positive result on Tuesday to save their season.
The omens aren’t too good for Didier Deschamps’ men though as they have lost three of the last four European ties where they have suffered a first-leg defeat. Bayern have also won their last nine home games and haven’t tasted defeat in front of their own fans since November last year.
Looking at the team news for this one, Bayern will be without the suspended Bastian Schweinsteiger, while Marseille are set to welcome back Steve Mandanda.
Overall, Bayern Munich are the overwhelming favourites for this one after it gets underway at 7.45pm on Tuesday evening.
