Match in Focus

19:45 TODAY BTEU

B Munich v Atl Madrid

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Bayern have won 22 of their last 24 home games inside normal time
Expert verdict
Bayern were unable to break down a stubborn Atletico side last week and will have to work hard for the breakthrough in Bavaria. The hosts are unlikely to go for broke early on but will ramp up the pressure and can make their mark in the second half.
