Our man-in-the-know is tipping the England international to score but expects Bayern Munich forward Thomas Mueller to net his fifth goal of the current campaign.
And the Tipster is backing the newly-crowned German champions to beat the Premier League holders and take a lead back to the Allianz Arena.
Can United go one better than Arsenal and score against Bayern in the first leg at their home stadium? The Tipster believes so. Our resident betting expert can’t look past Rooney. The 28-year-old scored a brace in his most recent outing, taking his tally to 17 goals in all competitions this season. Rooney will also be on free-kick and penalty duty, too. The Tipster’s opening bet is Rooney to score at 21/10.
Bayern are heavy favourites to beat the Red Devils at 1/2. Pep Guardiola’s side lifted their 24th German title last week so the Bavarian outfit can focus their energy on the Champions League. Bayern have won their last seven away games in Europe. The Tipster is backing Bayern to beat United at 1/2.
This is a big price considering United have shown their best home form in the Champions League since their triumphant 2007/08 campaign. The Red Devils have scored nine goals in their four European games this season. Meanwhile, Bayern have netted in all eight of their Champions League games. Both teams to score looks a good price at 4/6.
Mueller has proven a bit of a nemesis for English sides in the Champions League, as well as the England national team for that matter! The Germany international has scored seven goals against Premier League sides in the Champions League. The 24-year-old is Bayern’s top goal-scorer in this season’s competition with four strikes. The Tipster likes the look of Mueller to score any time at 5/4.
United are priced at a record 11/2 to beat Bayern on Tuesday night. It is one of the biggest-ever prices for the Reds Devils to win at home in the Champions League. Whilst the Tipster may not have inspired confidence in his assessment of their English champions in this edition, David Moyes’s men are worth a punt at such large odds with a home crowd roaring their side on. The long shot for this edition is United to beat Bayern at 11/2.
