Bayern Munich entertain Salzburg in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie later today.

Bayern is the third favorite to win the Champions League this season, behind only Manchester City and Liverpool and will be confident of booking their place in the last eight this evening.

Bayern Munich vs Salzburg is scheduled for a 1.15 am IST kick-off tonight, Wednesday, March 9, 2022.

Bayern Munich vs Salzburg prediction
Bayern dominated many of the stats in the first leg, but they found it difficult to break Salzburg down while also looking vulnerable themselves.
Back on home soil though, anything other than a Bayern win that sees them through to the last eight would be a massive surprise.
Bayern to win, 3-1.
