If Bayern Munich are to stand any chance of topping Group D ahead of Atletico Madrid they have no room to falter. To keep pace they must win their first Champions League game on the road in 2016, having drawn with Juventus and Benfica, and suffered two 1-0 losses to Atletico Madrid.

PSV should provide an easier opportunity for Bayern to break their duck. Carlo Ancelotti's side won 4-1 in the reverse fixture a couple of weeks ago, sparking a run of four straight wins.

Bayern will arrive in Holland in confident mood, to face a PSV team that have only won four of their last 11 games. Last season's Eredivisie champions are currently third and five points behind leaders Feyenoord. They will need to turn their form around if they are to have any chance of landing a third successive Eredivisie title under Phillip Cocu and that task will only be harder if they face the arduous schedule of the Europa League.


Both Teams To Score

PSV might be in unpredictable form, but they are reliable when it comes to finding the net. They have scored in each of their last eight outings, with the defensively-minded Atletico Madrid being the only side to deny them in the Champions League this season.

Bayern might have an impressive roster of defensive personnel but they are finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late. They have conceded in all but one of their last seven matches.

Both teams to score is available at 1.784/5 and looks a safe bet in a game in which Bayern need to take maximum points on the road.
