Bayern Munich Overwhelming Favourite Against Hamburg

Published on August 14th, 2015 7:36 am EST
Bayern Munich will begin their campaign for their fourth straight Bundesliga title when they play host to Hamburg on Friday evening. This match, which is set to take place in Allianz Arena, will mark the start of the Bundesliga season.

Bayern Munich, by their high standards, had a disappointing year last season. While Bayern Munich was able to capture a Bundesliga title, they failed in their quest to win another Champions League title. Bayern Munich had good reason for the late season stumble, however, as they were beset with a variety of injuries to some of their biggest players.

With a largely healthy squad that includes the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller, Bayern Munich will be looking to build on last season's campaign.


Don't count on Hamburg surprising Bayern Munich on the road on Friday - here are the current betting odds for the match:

Bayern Munich, 1.08
Draw, 10.00
Hamburg, 26.00

With these odds, the bookmakers are essentially telling you that Hamburg has zero chance of ever winning this game. Even if Hamburg were playing at home, they would be considered large underdogs - in the unfriendly confines of Allianz Arena, Hamburg's chances of winning fail to essentially nil.

According to the bookmakers, the likeliest outcome of Friday's match is a 3-0 victory for Bayern Munich. In years past, Bayern Munich has had a very stingy defense, and the 2015-16 campaign looks to be no different.


Bayern Munich is considered to be a virtual lock to win Bundesliga this season, as they are currently listed at 1.08 to win. Their next closest competitor (Borussia Dortmund), is listed at 17.00.

Can Bayern Munich start their campaign on the right foot on Friday evening?
