Bayern Munich are arguably the best team in Europe at the moment and have certainly been the market movers on the Champions League outright betting after the German side’s blinding start to the season.
Jupp Heynckes is getting the best of out of his talented Bayern squad, something which could be seen from Saturday’s 4-0 demolition of Hertha Berlin which saw the Munchen side get back to scoring ways following a 0-0 draw at Hoffenheim.
Bayern have enjoyed a 100% start to their Champions League campaign thanks to a 2-0 win away to Villarreal and then a 2-0 victory against Manchester City, with the bookmakers installing them as big favourites to win in Naples on Tuesday night. Some firms go odds-on about the visitors although bet365 (£200 free bets) offer even money.
It is slightly puzzling to see Napoli available at odds of 14/5 (Paddy Power – £100 free betting) to win this match on the basis that they are one of the best teams in Italy right now, with Walter Mazzarri’s side finishing 3rd last term and having beaten both Milan teams already this season.
Perhaps they took their eye slightly off the ball on Saturday when losing at home to Parma, although this is still a team with dangerous weaponry going forward and that includes Edinson Cavani who can be backed at 13/2 to score the first goal of the game.
Bayern’s main marksman is Mario Gomez, with the German striker having scored two goals against Hertha Berlin to take his tally to 14 for the season.
