Bayern Munich News and Form
Bayern Munich make a return for what is their 23rd UEFA Champions League group stage campaign. From those previous 22 efforts, they have topped their section 15 times, including last season. They picked up 14 points in last season’s group stage campaign to beat Ajax, Benfica and AEK Athens. After a 0-0 draw at Liverpool in the first leg of their round of sixteen tie, they suffered a heavy loss in the second leg at home, going down 3-1 against the eventual champions.
Bayern are a beast on home soil in the group stage of the competition, having won 14 of their last 15 such matches (D1). They haven’t lost in the competition at home since 2013 when Manchester City won there. Bayern Munich have taken just two wins in their last six Champions League home games (D2 L2) if you take into consideration their knockout stage fixtures as well. Bayern have hosted Serbian opposition four times before, winning three of those.

Red Star Belgrade News and Form
It is likely going to be another tough campaign for Red Star Belgrade. Last season they entered the competition at the first qualifying round and made it to the group stage. They bowed out in the group stage, but their big moment was a 2-0 home success over Liverpool, which was the first-ever Champions League group stage victory for any Serbian club. They lost their three away games heavily though. There was a 6-1 defeat at PSG, a 4-0 loss at Anfield against Liverpool and a 3-1 loss at Napoli.
They had to start from the first qualifying round in this campaign as well and had some tough battles along the way. The notable ones were penalty shootout win over FC Copenhagen and an away goals success over Young Boys in the playoff round. Red Star Belgrade have won 3 of their last 16 European games (D8 L5). They are D4 L4 in their last eight European away games. From previous visits to Germany, Red Star are W4 L11.
