Bayern Munich v Barcelona Betting Preview
Thanks to the perfect concoction of quality players and adventurous tactics, last week's first leg semi-final proved to be quite the spectacle for anyone luck enough to see it. However, this will be of no consolation for Bayern Munich whatsoever, as they see their Champions League hopes hanging by the thinnest of threads ahead of the second leg at the Allianz Arena.
Although Bayern deserved to lose the opening fixture, the 3 goal deficit they now need to make up three was a little tough on the German champions. Yes, you can argue that they should have been out of the tie in the first fifteen minutes were it not for the brilliance of Manuel Neuer, but Neymar's breakaway goal in injury time has made a tough task, almost impossible for the home side in Bayern Munich v Barcelona tonight.
The biggest problem for Pep Guardiola is not scoring three goals – Bayern have done this on multiple occasions already this season – it will be not to concede an away goal. If this happens, the Germans need five and the tie will essentially be over. However, they come into Barcelona clash off the back of another domestic defeat at the weekend to Augsberg – the second on the bounce – and are once again without the likes of Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and David Alaba. Whichever way you look at it, Bayern Munich need a miracle tonight.
If Guardiola was searching for any cause for optimism, he won't find it at the Nou Camp. The Barcelona machine just keeps rolling on and the Catalan giants followed up their excellent win in midweek with a comfortable three points at home to Real Sociadad. This was their seventh straight victory in all competitions as well as their seventh clean sheet in a row. Furthermore – thanks to Real Madrid's draw with Valencia – Barcelona now have the luxury of a four point cushion at the top of La Liga with two games to spare.
As with most games, the opening goal is often crucial. However, for this Bayern Munich v Barcelona match it holds huge permutations should either team make their way into the scoresheet early in the game, particularly the away side. Based on recent form and injury problems I can't see Bayern keeping a clean sheet, and I feel that once Barcelona score, the tie will be over.
For our Bayern Munich v Barcelona predictions our football tipster says it's a tough one to predict but I'm edging towards a draw at 14/5 with Bet Victor.
Moving over to the goalscoring market and Thomas Muller is available at a decent price of 7/4 with Betfred to score in 90 minutes. The German international should retain penalty kick duties for the clash and has also notched a healthy total of 19 goals this season.
The second football betting tip for Bayern Munich v Barcelona is Muller to score anytime in the match, the best odds are 7/4 with Betfred.
Finally, I would expect this match to be an excellent candidate for both teams scoring. Sadly for us, the bookies do as well. The outcome currently fetches a wretched price of 8/15 with most bookmakers which doesn't offer great value. Therefore have a punt on over 3.5 goals instead at 17/10 with Bet Victor. With Bayern needing to go on the offensive, and the talent of Barcelona on the break, we could be in for another great game of football.
The third Bayern Munich v Barcelona betting tip tonight is for over 3.5 goals, the best odds are 17/10 at Bet Victor.
