Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich 2016 Preview And Prediction
Of all the teams who play on Europe's grandest stage, none show the survival skills of Atletico Madrid. Last season over 2 legs with Bayern Munich, they advanced on away goals and survived an absolute onslaught unleashed by the Bavarians, who were still managed by Pep Guardiola.
This week the two sides get to do it all again, except now Bayern are managed by Carlo Ancelotti; the man who beat Simeone in the 2013-14 Champions League final.

But Ancelotti's triumph 3 seasons ago was not easy. Against Atleti, nothing is. In 13 career meetings, Simeone holds a slight 5-4-4 advantage over the Italian.

Expect another tight affair when Bayern visit the Vicente Calderon. Rarely do these teams lose, and Atleti defend their home soil like savage dogs.
BET DRAW (+210) | WILIAM HILL
Having just stole a point from Barcelona at the Camp Nou last week is a good sign if you have shares in Atleti stock. And they will need to draw on their resilience once more when the Bavarians come to town. Bayern have won every game this season, including 2 domestic games which required very late goals to break deadlocks. On top of that Bayern also seem to have added 2 new players that look oddly familiar; Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben. They are back and scoring goals with a vengeance.
Simeone had 2 of his starters limp off on Sunday so he may come into this game shorthanded. It feels like a game where Atleti will have to sit deep and stop wave after wave of attack. But that will be nothing new to this disciplined regime.
Potential for A Much Bigger Profit
The style of game one anticipates from this match offers the opportunity to win several units.
IF you think that this will be a tight game, and IF you think goals will be at a premium and IF you think it ultimately ends in a draw than what you are really saying that this game ends 0-0 or 1-1.
You can bet on 2 final scores at +700 and +550 respectively. If you planned to bet 1 unit on the draw the potential to make over 5 units as oppose to 2 units can add several more units of profit to your week if you guess correct.
