UEFA Champions League, kick-off at 7:45pm Wednesday 18th October 2017 from Allianz Arena
British football would love Celtic to go to the Allianz Arena and beat Bayern Munich on Wednesday in front of the BT Sport cameras, but it’s almost impossible, according to bookmakers. The Scottish side have little, if indeed any, chance of getting at least a point in Germany. Harsh, but we’d say fair.
There’s no value at all in backing Munich to win, but there’s plenty to give punters a healthy interest in the match, including handicap, first goal scorer, correct score and half-time/full-time. An enjoyable evening’s viewing, our crew aim to make it a profitable outing, offering expert betting tips and predictions.

Team News – Bayern Munich
Dropped into Group B, alongside PSG, Anderlecht and Wednesday’s opponents, Bayern Munich have it all to do if they are to finish as pool winners. But, they don’t have to grab gold, a place in the top-two will be enough to see them progress, and they are expected to achieve that with minimal fuss, especially if they can bag the desired result here. Three points on the board, Munich and Celtic sit level after two games played.
The locals got off on the right foot, beating the group’s bottom-club Anderlecht in round one. A 3-0 home cheer was achieved, thanks to goals from Lewandowski, Alcantara and Kimmich. Kums was sent off for the beaten side on 11 minutes, making for a miserable start to what has already been a miserable campaign. A confidence booster for Jupp Heynckes, but they were brought back to earth by PSG, Alves scoring inside two minutes, before Cavani and Neymar put the game to bed.
Bayern were well and truly put in their place that night, but three points here would settle the ship, firming them up for second. Let’s take for granted PSG will win the group, it now looks between Bayern and Celtic to qualify and, on paper, that rates as a bit of a no contest. Home win in your betting tips and predictions is 1/8 (bet365), -2 on the handicap making more appeal at 5/6 (Betfair). I know what I’d rather be on.
Team News – Celtic
The Bhoys won a domestic treble last season, going through the campaign unbeaten in league and two cups. Brendan Rodgers refused to sit back and admire his work and, frighteningly for the rest of Scottish football, they’re a better team this season than they were last. They’ve proven that by sealing a rare away win in the Champions League, going into this test on the back of a stunning 3-0 cheer vs Anderlecht. Griffiths, Roberts and Sinclair were all on target.
The Bhoys kept hold of their unbeaten league run on Saturday when edging past Dundee at Parkhead, a strike from Olivier Ntcham proving the difference. A wider margin of victory expected, but Celtic fielded a weaker side than we thought they would, giving a number of fringe and youth players a chance to shine. Good news for fans – they got the points and gave the big guns a day off, meaning they’ll be fully rested for their trip to Germany.
Fancy the upset? You won’t find much support in the betting ring, and Coral traders are so confident Celtic will get nothing out of this tie that they are handing out as much 28/1 as you can carry. A price for die-hard fans, we think. The draw is more likely, but not much, 10/1 available across the board. Celtic to score a goal, regardless of the outcome, is 41/40 (Sportingbet).
Bayern Munich vs Celtic – UEFA Champions League Tips and Betting Predictions
We give Celtic full credit for their form in Scotland, and for that win in the Champions League last time. On paper, they are a side worth our respect, but Anderlecht are in a whole heap of trouble at the minute, so we’re not going to get carried away with that 3-0. Instead, I’m having Bayern Munich to win to nil as the best of our betting tips, 20/21, top price with Bet Victor.
Munich are not without their critics, many believing the Germans are a shadow of their former selves, but that’s going to do nothing but fire the home side up, and we’re on 3-0 Bayern in our correct score predictions. We can afford to keep our stakes low on that one, Bet Victor offering out 7/1. That’s favourite, but the price is nice.
