Bayern Munich v. CSKA Moscow, Champs League, 845pm local time.
Bayern Munich begin their defence of their UEFA Champions League title with a home fixture against Russian champs CSKA Moscow tonight. The German powerhouse have made three of the last four Champs League finals, and are aiming to become the first ever German club to go back-to-back in this tournament.
New manager Pep Guardiola makes his Champions League debut for Bayern, although he is no stranger to this competition, having won it in 2009 and 2011 with Barcelona. The boss made more changes to the team that won the German treble last year, adding Mario Gotze and Thiago Alcantara to his squad in the pre-season.
Star defender Jerome Boateng warned his teammates not to underestimate CSKA ahead of this match, saying that what they don't know can hurt them: "We don't often get to see CSKA's games, so it's hard to say what we can expectâ€¦What I do know is that they're very tricky opponents."
Bayern Munich head into this match as strong favorites, quoting 2/11 odds at bet365 Sports, compared to CSKA, 15/1, and a draw, 6/1. Punters can also place wagers on seven other match markets, including Both Teams to Score, Goals Odds/Even, Double Chance and Draw No Bet.
