Best Tip: Both teams to score

After looking at the KickOff match predictions, bookmakers' odds and relevant stats, there's one market that seems hard to ignore for this fixture: both teams to score. In Union Berlin and Bayern we have two sides going head-to-head that regularly score, but equally have trouble shutting the opposition out, and we expect them to maintain that reputation on Saturday evening. BTTS – yes best odds: 1.70.
