Bayern Munich will look to pick up a comfortable home win in the Champions League this week. The German giants are up against Benfica.
The two sides will meet on the 2nd of November at 20:00 pm BST.
Bayern Munich bounced back from their humiliating defeat against Gladbach with a win over Union Berlin at the weekend and the German giants will look to build on that performance. They managed to score five goals last time out and Julian Nagelsmann’s side will be hoping for another big win this week.
Benfica are in mediocre form coming into this game and they will have to improve immensely in order to get anything out of this contest. The Portuguese outfit are massive underdogs here.
