Man City vs Bayern Prediction & Pick
Manchester City has been soaring ahead of its upcoming matchup. The Sky Blues have avoided tasting defeat in 12 straight outings, which includes winning each of their last eight matches. They're also backed by one of the best players in the sport, Erling Haaland, who leads Man City with 30 goals — 21 more than the next closest player.
While Bayern Munich might be the German Bundesliga's top club, it's been far from perfect lately. The Reds have dropped two of their previous four matches, finishing with one or zero goals three times over that stretch. Furthermore, Bayern has also dropped three of its last four meetings against Man City.
With Pep Guardiola's club showing no signs of slowing down, expect Manchester City to emerge victorious in front of a raucous Etihad Stadium crowd.
Final Score Prediction: Manchester City: 2 | Bayern Munich: 1

Man City vs Bayern Best Bet
I like Manchester City a lot, but I don't see the home team winning by a multi-goal margin. For starters, Bayern Munich is one of the better defensive clubs in the Champions League and can limit the opposition's offense even if its own is struggling at the moment. Secondly, seven of the last eight Man City-Bayern matchups have been decided by one goal — including each of the last six.
In other words, backing the underdog on the spread is the right call for this match.
Bet: Bayern Munich +1 (+105)
