We’ve arrived at the Knock Out stages of the Champions League and once again, Arsenal have been handed one of the toughest fixtures possible. The Gunners frequently run into the likes of Barcelona at this stage but if they are to progress further in 2016/17, Arsene Wenger’s men will have to get past Germany’s Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich.
The first leg takes place in Munich on Wednesday and if you are looking to place a bet on this game, 888Sport have a great enhanced odds deal on either of the two teams.
The Promotion in Numbers
If you are edging towards Bayern Munich in this match then 888’s standard book price currently sits at 11/20 but it is lifted under this promotion to 6/1. 11/20 is fairly common around the sportsbooks with the current best quoted at 8/15 with BetStars.
Meanwhile, if you think that Arsenal can upset the odds then their 888 figure of 5/1 has increased all the way up to a massive 20/1. Elsewhere, the longest price we could find was Bet365’s 13/2.
So, whether you favour a home win or a surprise result for the visitors, either price could give you some seriously good value.
This offer is for new customers to 888sport who register for an account via the landing page that is specific to this promotion. After registering your basic details, fund at least £10.00 into that account and then find this Champions League game from the menu.
Back either Bayern Munich or Arsenal to win it and stake between £5.00 and £10.00 on your selected outcome. If you are successful with your bet, 888Sport will pay winnings at their published book price while the balance is received as free bet tokens.
Please check all terms and conditions, particularly those relating to free bets and remember that this offer applies to the winner of Wednesday night’s fixture only and not to the tie as a whole.
Picking a Winner
So, Bayern Munich are the heavy odds on favourites for the first leg but should you back the Germans and rule Arsenal out entirely? The Gunners come into this match having won against Hull City on Saturday but prior to that they had lost two league games in a row. However, you have to remember that one of those matches was against league leaders Chelsea and that Arsenal can often raise their game for these big fixtures.
As for Bayern, they have won five of their last six matches and have established a seven point lead over second placed RB Leipzig.
Form would therefore point towards Bayern Munich but that 20/1 boosted price on Arsenal is a seriously tempting one. It’s up to you to call but either of these enhanced odds deals would give you some excellent value if they land under this new customer promotion.
