Barcelona vs Bayern Munich:Prediction and Betting Tips
Barcelona facing a huge injury crisis in their UCL opener
For the first time in many years, Barcelona will play in the Champions League without Lionel Messi. The Blaugrana’s icon who left for PSG this season will be thoroughly missed at Camp Nou. Moreover, for this match, Barca will play without many key players due to injury.
Notably, Barcelona are winless in their last three UCL matches. However, the last time the Blaugrana went four games without a victory in the Champions League was back in 2013.
As for this season, Ronald Koeman’s team played three games in La Liga and have seven points. However, the numerous absences in Barca’s squad will limit Koeman’s selection chances.
Barcelona Key points
- BTTS happened in Barca’s eight of their last ten matches
- Barcelona failed to score in just one of their last ten matches
- The Blaugrana have an average of 1.6 goals per match in their last five home outings
Bayern Munich to take advantage of Barca’s problems
A very good start to the 2021 season saw Bayern Munich go undefeated in five competitive games. However, the 2019-20 Champions League winners will look for a better campaign than last year’s in the UCL under new coach Julian Nagelsmann. In addition, the Bavarians are on an incredible away form in the Champions League.
In fact, Bayern last lost to PSG in Paris back in September 2019. Since then they won 14 and drew four. In the Bundesliga this season, Nagelsmann’s team had a shaky start with a draw in Monchengladbach. But three wins in a row in which they scored 12 goals saw them reach the top of the table jointly with Wolfsburg.
Bayern Munich Key Points
- BTTS happened in Bayern’s five of their last six away matches
- Bayern scored in all of their last ten matches
- The Bavarians scored on average 3.83 in their last five away matches
Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Prediction
This will be the first meeting between Barcelona and Bayern Munich since the 1998-99 season. Nonetheless, the Spanish side’s minds will be marred with the 8-2 humiliation in Munich 11 months ago.
With so many players unavailable for Koeman through injury. In addition to the departure of Messi and Griezmann, the Dutch coach is relying on his countryman Memphis Depay.
Bayern on the other side has gained some momentum after that 1-1 opening draw in the Bundesliga. Notably both Barca and Bayern have scored and conceded regularly in the beginning of the season. Hence both teams to score seems a very probable outcome.
Considering BTTS has low odds of 1.44 at Vbet, we will combine it with the double chance combo at Vbet.
