Bayern Munich v Barcelona Betting Tips

Barcelona are a team with a proud history when it comes to the UEFA Champions League although it’s plausible that the Catalan side will be playing Europa League football next February. It’s been a tricky 2021-22 season for Barca and it’s a minor miracle that they sit second in the section with one game remaining.

After all, Xavi’s team have scored just two goals in five UCL group games, with the Spanish side on the receiving end of 3-0 defeats against Bayern Munich and Benfica which put them squarely behind the eight ball going into a double header against Dynamo Kiev. However, back to back 1-0 wins over the Ukraine side mean that they now have a chance of going through.

Barcelona Big Outsiders to Win at Allianz

It’s been tricky adapting to life after Lionel Messi for this Barcelona team who have also seen Antoine Griezmann return to Atletico Madrid after a fairly unhappy time of things at Camp Nou. However, the return of Xavi is like putting on an old comfortable pair of slippers and perhaps we’ll see a spirited display at the Allianz Arena.

Nevertheless, Barcelona are generally available at 7/2 to win this game in Germany and they should be thankful for the way in which the fixture programme has worked out. It means that they clash with a European powerhouse who have already progressed to the last sixteen stage after achieving five straight wins.

The Catalan side have shown some encouraging form in recent weeks including a 3-1 win away to Villarreal where Memphis Depay and Philippe Coutinho scored at the death to ensure a win at El Madrigal, with Xavi having inherited a fine squad of players including the above attacking pair.

Marc-Ander ter Stegen remains a solid stopper between the sticks, with Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets having bags of experience and ensuring that Barca have a solid backbone although it could still be a tall order to overcome the might of Bayern.

Bayern Could Be a Good Bet to Beat Barcelona

Bayern Munich might be in the mood to show no mercy in their final Champions League group game. Julian Nagelsmann has a strong squad of players and he will be able to call upon some quality fringe players to ensure that the Bavarian side enjoy a flawless record in the group stage.

Bayern have scored nineteen goals in the group stage and conceded just three, with the team running a bit lower on the scoring front in recent weeks. There was a surprise 2-1 defeat away to Augsburg and the German champions were only able to beat Arminia by a single goal in their latest match.
