For this weeks banker the viking had only one obvious choice and that is when the german powerhouse Bayern Munich welcomes Dinamo Zagreb over at Allianz Arena. This game is part of the champions league group stage for group F. Bayern Munich is currently leading the group after a convincing 3-0 away game victory over Olympiakos. Bayern Munich are favored to win this years champions league and especially with Real Madrid facing internal problems and not being able to deliver and with Barcelona showcasing a very weak defence in the first few games of the season, the real contender now seems to be Paris saint germain. The visiting Dinamo Zagreb is not quite in the same position as the titans from germany as they just this year qualified for champions league (usually they get knocked out in the qualifying stage and instead play in Europa League). Zagreb had questionably quite an easy way to the champions league this year but they started the group stage very strong and beat Arsenal with 2-1, a team that this season actually stands a chance against Bayern Munich if they play at their best (especially with Petr Chec).
Dinamo Zagreb is coming into this game with 4 victories and 1 draw in their last 5 games that they have played. Their shape is looking very strong and morale should be at an alltime high with highscoring victories, a victory against Arsenal and a derby victory against Lokomotiv Zagreb with 4-0. Dinamo Zagreb are also currently leading the HNL by 2 points and are 2nd in the champions league group by goal differential. Their leading scorer Armin Hodzic has scored 5 times while playing 6 games so if you´re looking for a scorecast from zagreb but with Bayern Munich winning then he or Ángelo Henríquez will probably be your best bet (that kind of bet would be the player to score but Bayern Munich to win).
Projected line up: (9) Henríquez , (20) Pjaca , (8) Antolic, (30) Rog, (2) Soudani, (16) Ademi, (19) Pivaric, (77) Matel, (87) Taravel, (26) Benkovic, (34) Eduardo
Bayern Munich will be coming into this game with great confidence as always and have won 5 of their last 5 games, scoring at least 2 goals in each game and every game has featured over 2.5 goals. Bayern Munich is currently leading bundesliga with 6 victories out of 6 games and they´re the leaders of group F in the champions league group stages following their 3-0 away victory versus Olympiakos. The germans will probably be without the injuried Arjen Robben, Benatia, Badstuber and Ribéry, but this should be no problem what so ever for Bayern Munich as their talentpool knows no limits. Especially with lewandowski showing up even greater than he usually does scoring 5 goals in less than 10 minutes against Wolfsburg (who for the record has quite a strong team this season), though due to previous injuries it is uncertain if he will start in this game.
Projected line up: (1) Neuer, (21) Lahm, (17) Boateng, (27) Alaba, (18) Bernat, (23) Vidal,(14) Alonso, (6) Thiago, (11) Costa, (25) Muller, (19) Gotze

The viking believes that this will be an easy game for Bayern Munich regardless of Dinamo Zagrebs current form. Every game is a must win for Bayern especially at Allianz Arena in the champions league groupstage games. The fans and players wont tolerate a loss versus such a lesser team, and with the secret weapon of lewandowski to be traded in at the first sight of problems Dinamo Zagreb should be no tough task at all. There is also some value to be had in Over x goals for this game and in various scorecasts. Even though Bayern will most likely win the game it’s quite possible that they let Dinamo Zagren get a sloppy goal, there is potential value to be had in “both teams to score” however that will be to random for the viking.
