Bayern Munich vs Benfica live stream: Preview
Will Bayern Munich’s imperious form in this season’s Champions League continue?
A fortnight ago, these two met at Estádio da Luz and, in the 70th minute, it was still goalless.
But, Bayern eventually romped to a 4-0 victory with Leroy Sané scoring twice, one of which was a glorious free-kick.
Éverton Soares also scored an unfortunate own goal and, as per usual, Robert Lewandowski got on the scoresheet.
This means Bayern have won all three games in this group after beating Barcelona 3-0 and then Dynamo Kyiv 5-0.
The Bavarian giants hold the record for the best ever group stage campaign when, in 2019, they won all six games and racked up a +19 goal difference.
They’re very much on course to smash their own record two years on.
Benfica though are hopeful of joining them in the round of 16.
The Eagles made a good start to this campaign, first drawing in Kyiv before hammering Barcelona 3-0 in Lisbon.
But, their home defeat to Bayern is just the second time they’ve lost by 4+ goals in a home European game, the other was against Manchester United 55 years ago.
Their trip to Catalonia later this month to take on an underwhelming Barcelona will be crucial in determining who goes through.
In the Primeira Liga, Jorge Jesus’ side are currently third after being held to a 1-1 draw by high-flying Estoril Praia on Saturday.
Bayern Munich meantime are top of the Bundesliga after demolishing Union Berlin 5-2 at Stadion An der Alten Försterei at the weekend.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side though won’t win all the trophies this season after crashing out of the DFB-Pokal last midweek.
That came about in rather unbelievable circumstances as a first-choice Bayern XI lost 5-0 at Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Will this one at Allianz Arena witness an emphatic victory but in Bayern’s favour?
