Bayern Munich vs Barcelona: Prediction and Betting Tips
— FC Bayern München (@FCBayern) December 6, 2021
Bayern Munich will be happy to get a real threat out of the way
Bayern Munich enjoyed a fantastic weekend domestically when they beat great rivals Borussia Dortmund 3-2 in a chaotic ‘Der Klassiker’ showdown, and as a result, Bayern moved four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga standings. On Wednesday, they enter this clash with Barcelona, having already sealed the top spot in UEFA Champions League Group E.
The Bavarians top the pile in Group E thanks to a run of five straight victories in the section so far, netting a whopping average of 3.8 goals per fixture. That included a 3-0 away victory over Barcelona at Camp Nou on matchday one. In fact, it’s a result that extended their streak to three straight wins against Barça – which is the longest such streak suffered by the visitors against any opposition in European football history.
Barcelona need a win to stay in the UCL
A late 1-0 home defeat to Real Betis over the weekend was hardly ideal preparation for this crucial UCL clash for Barcelona. Especially as that defeat ended their previous six-game run without a loss (W3, D3). The Blaugrana are two points clear of third-placed Benfica, however, with the head-to-head record falling in favor of Benfica, Barcelona are obliged to win as the Portuguese are expected to beat Dynamo Kyiv.
That could prove an extremely tough task as Barcelona have now netted just four goals across their previous eight UCL clashes. Moreover, Barcelona failed to score more than once in a UCL match since December 2020, that in fact is their longest ever such run in competition history. Hence, newly appointed coach Xavi is faced with the danger of missing out on a UCL knockout stage.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona Prediction
Bayern Munich’s level in the Champions League this season is that of a champion and surely the Germans are marching with solid strides towards the knockout stage and beyond. Obviously, all these stats and facts make Bayern firm favorites to win this match.
Remarkably, Thomas Mueller scored seven goals in six previous UCL matches against Barcelona. As for the goals market and considering Bayern’s very high goal average of 4.2 goals per game this season, the bookies are paying just 1.39 for over 2.5 goals.
To summarize, unless Bayern field a weakened team, the Germans are too good this season to bet against them. Thus we will back over 2.5 goals combined with a double chance outcome. As for our second prediction, we will back Bayern to score over 0.5 goals in the first half.
