Inter vs Bayern Munich-07-09-2022

Inter Milan and Bayern Munich bring the curtain down on the “group of death,” officially known as Group C, in a rematch of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final from 2010. Inter prevailed 2-0 on that historic occasion, but after suffering a 3-2 loss in the Milan Derby on Saturday, the Italians’ confidence will undoubtedly be shaken as they try to swing the H2H balance in European play in their favor.

Simone Inzaghi will be concentrating on how his team begins their Champions League campaign with a victory over Bayern Munich at home. In addition, Inter will be trying to avenge their 3-2 loss to city rival AC Milan in the Derby Della Madonina. To defeat a tenacious Bayern team and create opportunities, Inter will need to succeed on both the defensive and offensive fronts. Inter will try to use wing-backs to offer width while also attempting to play into central areas using their midfielders since their back three will serve as the foundation of their attack.

The German champions will be looking to bounce back to winning ways after two consecutive draws in the Bundesliga.  With both draws ending in 1-1 score lines, Julian Nagelsmann will be looking to bolster his attack to give it an edge when they face Inter on Wednesday.

Form Guide: Inter Milan

Inter’s difficult week just got even worse after they were outplayed by AC Milan in the derby this past weekend. Despite their early lead, Inter could not maintain control of the game. Dzeko and Mkhitaryan improved their appearance, but as a whole, the squad and team do not appear to be capable of contending for the title.

Inter Milan is a big underdog at home, which is something we didn’t see for quite a while. Their form isn’t perfect, with two losses in the previous three games, both against big rivals. At first, Nerazzurri lost in Rome to Lazio, 3-1, after that they were better than Cremonese at home.

Only one of Inter’s games this season did not feature goals from both teams, and every game featured at least three goals. Although Simone Inzaghi enjoys attacking and being aggressive, the Italian coach appears to need to make a change to counteract a weak defensive performance.

Form Guide: Bayern Munich

Bayern stumbled to a disappointing domestic result at the weekend, drawing 1-1 against Union Berlin, though Julian Nagelsmann did manage to rotate his squad a little. This was the second draw for Julian Nagelsmann’s crew in the past three games, with the first being against Monchengladbach at home, 1-1 as well.

It was noticeable that Bayern kept its power for the game in Milan and that also, they didn’t have too much luck on certain occasions. Nagelsmann kept some players like Mane on the bench while others on the pitch, particularly Sane, didn’t have enough focus in the key moments. The German side has been far from perfect and needs to deliver consistent performances. Kingsley Coman was part of the insipid draw against Union Berlin and could lose his place to Serge Gnabry. However, Nagelsmann could also bring in experience over form while selecting Thomas Muller ahead of Musiala.

How the game could go

A tough week for Inter gets tougher as they were outplayed by arch-rivals AC Milan in the derby this weekend. Despite their opener, Inter could not control the match but with Dzeko and Mkhitaryan they looked better overall as a team and squad it doesn’t look like they can challenge for the title.

This may be a tricky first group stage match for Bayern Munich away but they are a very dynamic team with world-class players and a world-class bench. they have been starting their Champions League campaigns quite well in the last few seasons, and after their shocking loss to Villareal in last season’s knockout round, they will like to make an early statement here.

Inter will seek to make the clash as tight and cagey as possible. They will be compact in their three/five at the back approach. The wing-backs will be allowed to push forward when in possession and fall back into a defensive shape when out of possession. This will make it difficult for Bayern to play their normal passing game while also exposing them on the counter.

Betting Predictions

Bayern to win

Inter Milan and Bayern Munich are not in their best form at the moment. Both sides have had frustrating performances that have affected their domestic league campaigns. When comparing these two sides, Bayern Munich looks the better side and is also in better form. In addition, the German champions also have a far superior side which could help them past their Italian rivals Bayern will seek to employ their front-foot style of football characterized by high possession, high pressing, and a high volume of chances created. Bayern is the favorite to win the match and takes all three points. Bet9ja have 1.86, 1xbet have 1.87 and Paripesa have 1.87 odds.

Over 2.5 Goals

Inter should be a high-scoring team. They scored 11 goals in five played matches. Also, in every one of those five games, it was at least three goals. Bayern Munich on the other hand has scored 14 goals in their last four matches this season. Bayern played five games on the road this year, and all but the one in Union saw at least five goals, with the Bundesliga champions scoring 23 goals. They are more than dreadful for the hosts once they appear in their house. Bet9ja have 1.48 odds, Paripesa has 1.49, and 1xbet have 1.49 odds.

Anytime Goalscorer (Inter Milan)

Lautaro Martinez

Lautaro had an impressive campaign last term in the UCL despite early exits for him and his Inter Milan teammates. He has started the season impressively scoring three goals in the Serie A already, he would be gutted to have not helped his side with a goal and win the Milan Derby last weekend but will look at this as an opportunity to redeem himself. He scored just one goal in the UCL last term but could do better this campaign. Bet9ja have 3.00 odds for him to score while Paripesa have 2.50.

Dzeko

Dzeko would be an ideal replacement for the injured Lukaku up front as he showed that with a goal against AC Milan last fixture. He formed a striking partnership with Martinez up front last season and we could see them replicating it here again today. Bet9ja have 3.50 odds for him to score while Paripesa have 2.70.

Anytime Goalscorer (Bayern Munich)

Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane is tied with the most goals in all competitions for Bayern Munich and will easily be the go-to man for goals today. He has scored an impressive five goals in seven games his last goal came two games ago and the striker hasn’t gone consecutive games without a goal yet. This is why we are counting on him to help his team win. Bet9ja have 2.55 odds for him to score while Paripesa have 1.95.

Jamal Musiala

The attacking midfielder has proven to be a threat this season and now would feature in today’s game after being adequately rested at the weekend. He would be looking to replicate his goalscoring performances in his previous games to help his side to an important victory here today. His skills cannot be underrated as he has found the back of the net five times in six games. Bet9ja have 4.50 odds for him to score while Paripesa have 3.10.
