Bayern de Munique vs Benfica Betting Tips
A draw is enough for Bayern Munich to secure their place on the next stage of UCL (Uefa Champions League) with a day’s advance. There is not much doubt that this will happen. However, this has not been enough to give the club peace of mind. That’s because the results in the German Championship have caused great turbulence.
On Saturday, November 24, at Allianz Arena, the team had a stumbling block considered unacceptable. In the face of Fortuna Dusseldorf, who are steeped in the relegation zone, they won by 3 to 1, but ended up yielding the tie, by 3 to 3, with the last goal being signaled in the second half.
This made the team to see Borussia Dortmund open even more advantage in the lead. With 21 points (six wins, three draws and three defeats), Bayern, in fifth place, was nine points behind the aurinegro who, outside their domains, beat Mainz 2-1.
The move of the board indicates that the 2018/2019 season is considered lost. Plans to hire reinforcements and waivers are already wide open. One of the first to be shown the starting gate is the Colombian James Rodriguez, who went into a collision course with coach Niko Kovac.
The athlete, who was loaned by Real Madrid until the end of the season and would not have his bond renewed, was anticipated. Before the dispensation, he asked to leave. Maybe leave the club already in the next transfer window in January. Coincidentally, he was injured and is not available to perform on Tuesday.

Benfica also does not face a climate of peace with its fans. However, at least coach Rui Vitória won some peace with the confirmation of favoritism in the Portuguese Cup. On Thursday, November 22, at the Estádio da Luz, the Lisbon team beat Arouca 2-1 to secure their passage to the last 16 of the competition.
Although the result was within expectations, performance once again was not convincing. The visitors, who play in the second division and do not go well, took advantage by scoring, through Bukia, 19 minutes from the start. Jonas evened the score in the first leg. The scoreboard now read 42 minutes into the match.
The tie-breaker was already in the second half. It was signaled by Rafa Silva in the 48 minutes causing a relief and avoiding a new wave of protests calling for the resignation of the coach. Something that has happened to every bad result harvested in the Stadium of Light.
In the Champions League of Europe, Benfica no longer depends only on their results to obtain the classification. With four points, you can reach a maximum of ten. So, in addition to beating Bayern and AEK at home on the final day, he will have to hope that the rivals will lose points. The combination needed to get one of the two places in the last 16 is highly unlikely. Thus, the fate of the Lisbon team in the second half of the season should even be the Europa League.
