The top two teams in Group F go head-to-head at the Mestalla on Tuesday in a crunch Champions League encounter. Both Valencia and Bayern Munich are locked on nine points after four games meaning the winner will all but ensure that they progress through to the knockout stages of Europe’s elite competition.
Both teams go into the match undefeated in five matches but it is Bayern who have been installed as the 23/20 favourites for the win courtesy of Paddy Power, while Valencia can be backed at a very reasonable 23/10 to record a victory on home soil. Alternatively a draw can be found at 12/5.
Bayern registered a 2-1 win when the teams met at the Allianz Arena back in September but in truth Valencia’s late consolation goal made the game look closer than it actually was. Tuesday's corresponding fixture is likely to be a more competitive affair, with both sides eager to claim the win that will virtually book their place in the next round.
The Germans have failed to win just three of their matches in all competitions this season but were held by Nuremberg on Saturday, despite taking an early lead through Mario Mandzukic, who is available at 5/1 to open the scoring on Tuesday.
Valencia have won seven and drawn one of their home matches this season, meaning at 23/10 they are definitely worth backing. Furthermore they have a 100% home record in this season's Champions League, courtesy of convincing wins against Lille and Bate. A 2-1 win at 10/1 could prove to be a fruitful bet, while Roberto Soldado - who has four goals in Europe this season - is available at 6/1 to open the scoring. Meanwhile three-goal Jonas Goncalves can be found at 21/10 to score anytime.
However, it must be remembered that Bayern finished runners-up in the competition last season and are capable of beating anyone on their day. Paddy Power Bookmakers have priced Jupp Heynckes’ men at 8/1 to come away with a 1-0 victory, while a 2-1 win is also available at the same price. Meanwhile a 1-1 draw could be the way to go at 6/1.
Bayern crushed Lille 6-1 in their last Champions League outing, with Claudio Pizarro grabbing a first-half hat-trick in the space of 16 stunning minutes. The striker is 6/4 to score again on Tuesday night, while Mario Gomez is available at 7/2 to open the scoring and 4/5 to get his name on the scoresheet.
