Venue: Stadion Rajko Mitic, Serbia.
We head into Matchday 5 of the Champions League as Bayern Munich travel to face Serbian Champions Crvena Zvezda at the Stadion Rajko Mitic in Serbia. Bayern is aiming to secure top spot in Group B as they are likely to splash out their attacking style on the Serbians. Hans Flick has been the interim manager since Niko Kovac has been sacked, and the Bavarians have been impressive so far, scoring goals for fun especially in the Bundesliga and it is likely that record another win over their opponents in their penultimate group game.
Bayern has not lost an away game in the Champions League since the 3-0 loss against Paris St. Germain in 2017/18 season in the group stage. Since then they’ve gone to win matches convincingly in the group stage.
Crvena Zvezda, on the other hand, has witnessed four of their five defeats this season, all coming from the Champions League. They had lost all of their four home games since their draw to Napoli last season.
The Bavarians who were one of the three teams to qualify for the knockout rounds on Matchday four will cement their place on the log if they win tonight in Serbia while the Serbs will crash out if they fail to win and Tottenham beats Olympiakos.
Both teams have met on the European scene six-time which three have been from champions league and Europa meetings respectively.
