BARCELONA vs BAYERN MUNICH – BETTING TIP
Bayern has taken a maximum of 12-points from four group games, and they beat today’s opponent 2-0 in Munich. The Bundesliga team has already qualified for the knockout stage, and they are big favorites to top the group.
Nevertheless, the visitors will be playing this match without key players. First and foremost, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is still injured, meaning he will miss his fifth game in succession. Sven Ulreich will be wearing the gloves again, and Bayern is the perfect 4-0-0 when he’s in goal.
However, Ulreich will never be ranked a top goalkeeper, whereas Neuer was ranked as the worlds best! Furthermore, the 34-year-old conceded two goals against both Augsburg and Plzen, and tonight’s hosts will be the best team he faced. The visitors are missing the club’s 2nd highest-scorer Leroy Sane, and defender Lucas Hernandez. Incidentally, in the reverse game, that pairing scored the two goals!
In our experience, Bayern is pragmatic enough to concentrate on meaningful matches. With a weekend game against Mainz, Bayern boss Julien Nagelsmann won’t be taking chances with his players. Since they qualified for the knockout stage, we can imagine the visitors coming up short!
As it stands, Barcelona is just third in the Group. After drawing (3-3) in the last round with Inter, the Italian club is in a better position to take 2nd place. One thing is almost certain, Barca needs all six points from their remaining two games.
We thought Barcelona was unfortunate to lose in Munich. After all, Ex-Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski missed two clear chances, albeit Neuer should be congratulated for a brilliant save.
The Blaugrana come into this match on the back of beating Athletic Bilbao 4-0. Previously, Xavi’s team had beaten Villarreal 3-0, and from what we have been watching the hosts are beginning to peak.
For tonight’s match, Barcelona confirmed Sergio Roberto, Depay, Christensen, and Araujo are out. The unknown is Gavi, he was taken off after 33 minutes at the weekend.
To summarise, Bayern won their last five meetings with Barcelona. Nevertheless, they have already qualified, and they are unlikely to be as motivated as the hosts. Also, Barca was unfortunate in the Allianz Arena, and since then they seem to have peaked. Finally, Nagelsmann will be without the three players who had the biggest impact on the reverse game.
