Current form FC Bayern Munich
It’s not going as planned in the German Bundesliga for Carlo Ancelotti and his team right now. They are still leading the rankings, but Munich was only to draw in their last two games. They have not been able to convert a lead into a win against Cologne (1:1) and nor against Eintracht Frankfurt (2:2). Additionally they lost their last Champions League game against Atlético Madrid 0:1. Munich’s game seems static a lot of times and it is lacking surprise moments. They especially seem to struggle against defensively stable teams. But PSV Eindhoven’s strengths lay on offense. The balance between the two teams favors Bayern Munich. The Germans have won four of the six direct duels. One game ended in a draw and one game was won by the Dutch. Additionally Lewandowski and Co. have been able to win all of their last 13 home games in European competition, just like the opening game against Rostov (5:0). Despite all the critique of their last results one should not forget that the game in Madrid has been the only one Munich lost in 2016/2017 so far.
Current form PSV Eindhoven
Unlike Munich PSV Eindhoven is not satisfied with their standing in the rankings in the Dutch league. Philip Cocu’s team is only ranked fourth behind Feyernoord Rotterdam, Ajax Amsterdam and SC Heerenveen and they are already nine points behind the league’s leader. Eindhoven has not been able to win any of their last three games. They drew 3:3 against Rostov in Champions League and 1:1 against Heerenveen as well as against Heracles Almelo in the Dutch league. Eindhoven has been struggling on offense lately. Their lack in experience could be a disadvantage against a strong team like Bayern Munich. In the last game the average age of Cocu’s team was 23.9 years. An advantage on the other hand could be Eindhoven’s wing play, because Bayern’s defense has made some mistakes lately. Additionally PSV is performing pretty well in away games so far. Eindhoven is undefeated in seven away games in 2016/2017. Midfielder Jorrit Hendrix and center striker Jürgen Locadia will miss the game against Munich though.
Even though Munich has not been very convincing lately, they are still the favorite in the game against Eindhoven. Especially since the Dutchmen have not performed very well themselves lately. That’s why we believe that Munich will be able to get back on the road of success. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
