Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Betting tips
Powerful endurance test for FC Bayern Munich on the way to the longed-for triple: The reigning German champions and cup winners will face FC Barcelona in the top match in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Friday – a real blast in the premier class.
But first of all, Messi and Co. have to be eliminated in the quarter-finals, an extremely tough chunk for the Munich team. But also in this game, the German champions are considered favorites, like before Barcelona vs. Bavaria show the odds of the betting providers.
The fact that the quarter-finals in Lisbon will be played in a single knockout game naturally makes the duel more unpredictable – because superstar Messi in particular is capable of anything. If one player can decide a game alone, it is the Argentine.
The fact that FC Barcelona is not necessarily the favorite is not surprising when you look at the performance of the past weeks and months – and yet before the quarter-finals Barcelona vs. Bayern’s three-way odds for Barça victory are surprisingly high.
In many places there was talk of a “duel on equal terms”, Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also called the knockout game that, while Barcelona striker Luis Suarez spoke of a “50/50” game. But that ignores the fact that Barça have had serious problems recently, on and off the pitch.
The Catalans missed the intended championship in La Liga, three draws in quick succession after the restart ensured that the cup went to arch-rivals Real Madrid. This is the record in the last eleven league games: seven wins, three draws and one defeat, although the 2-1 defeat against Osasuna was ultimately meaningless.
After all, Barça has been harmed so far in the Champions League, in the previous eight games in the European high-gloss competition there have been five wins and three draws – only three teams are still unbeaten in this CL season: Barça, ManCity and opponent Bayern Munich.
In the group stage, Barça left Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Slavia Prague behind, in the round of 16 there was only a 1-1 draw in Naples before everything was made clear in the second leg at 3-1 in the empty Camp Nou.
But it was precisely the performance in this game that once again called the skeptics on the scene, because the Blaugrana performance was not particularly convincing despite the seemingly comfortable result. A thin squad and key players, all over 30, make Barça look like a team that is above their peak.
After all, the long-term injured Ousmane Dembélé is back in the squad for the finals in Lisbon for the first time in six months, which will travel to Portugal – even if the Frenchman has not yet officially received the medical green light.
Bayern Munich :
A look at the numbers and results last, and you understand immediately why FC Bayern Munich is an astonishingly clear favorite among bookmakers: Munich has been unbeaten in all competitions for 27 (!) Competitive games, the last defeat dates from December 7th , a 1: 2 in the league in Mönchengladbach.
In the league, coach Hansi Flick’s team marched unbeaten to the championship title in the second half of the season (16 wins and one draw from 17 games), in the premier class Bayern is on the verge of setting the record for FC Barcelona: FC Bayern has all of its eight Won Champions League games this season, only Barça had nine wins in a row before: 2002/03 and across all competitions between October 2014 and May 2015.
On the way to the record and the move into the semifinals, coach Flick has to do without his regular right-back: Benjamin Pavard is out due to a ligament injury, which means that Joshua Kimmich moves from the six to the six like in the second leg against Chelsea FC (4-1) Move right-back position. There is also a small question mark behind left-back Alphonso Davies, who would have to cancel Wednesday training due to adductor problems.
Should the Canadian – the discovery of the season at Bayern – actually fail, Flick is faced with the question of whether to turn David Alaba or Lucas Hernandez inside out. The defensive network was recently so well established at Bayern that a change would of course be extremely inconvenient for the Munich team.
Meanwhile, Jerome Boateng and Kingsley Coman are definitely fit again. Central defender Boateng was replaced in the second leg of the second leg against Chelsea in the 64th minute. Coman had missed the game due to muscular problems. But against FC Barcelona both are fit again.
Also since Flick can build on a well-rehearsed team that recently played like a perfectly oiled machine, we also favor Barcelona vs. Bayern the forecast on the tip “away win” in the three-way.
