Betting aficionados will be kicking themselves if they left a big Bayern Munich win out of their Saturday accumulator.
The German champions were playing Hamburg at home.
In case you were unaware, that’s a banker. And it’s a handicap banker too. Bayern have a proven track record of destroying Hamburg at the Allianz Arena in recent seasons.
It’s like when they open the scoring against Hamburg, they smell blood. In their last seven visits to the Allianz Arena, Hamburg have conceded 44 goals. Honestly. That’s an average of more than six goals a game.
On this occasion, it was an 8-0 drubbing for Hamburg. Astonishingly, it’s the third time in five years that Hamburg have conceded eight or more goals at Bayern. Robert Lewandowski got a hat-trick, Kingsley Coman got a double, and Arjen Robben, David Alaba and Arturo Vidal bagged one each. Not a bad way for Carlo Ancelloti to mark his 1000th game. Look at the full list of drubbings in that seven-year sequence in the tweet below.
