Bayern Munich vs Barcelona – Both teams’ supporters are accustomed to this matchup, but Barcelona supporters were particularly eager for it after seeing the Blaugrana lose back-to-back matches by scores of 3-0 at this stage in the previous campaign.
As Xavi successfully rebuilds the squad this summer, neutrals may anticipate a more even contest. The club has had success on the field as well after a run of five straight wins.
Everything went smoothly for Xavi last Wednesday as they thrashed Plzen 5-1 thanks to a hat-trick of goals from Lewandowski. Then, Cadiz defeated them 4-0, a stunning victory.
Bayern, however, cannot say the same, and despite a promising start to the season, Julian Nagelsmann appears to be suffering from second-season malaise.
The Bavarians are still unblemished in all competitions this season, but after opening with four straight victories, they have drawn two of their past five games.
Stuttgart held Nagelsmann’s team to a 2-2 draw on their home field over the weekend, three days after they successfully opened their Champions League campaign with a 2-0 victory at Milan.
With Inter Milan in the mix and attempting to cut the gap for the top two spots in the group, there is no margin for mistake for either club on Tuesday night.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona – Betting Analysis
Bayern have a four-game winning streak over Barcelona and a 17-4 goal differential in those games. In the 2015 semifinals, Barcelona last defeated the Bavarians. In 13 attempts, they have only managed to win twice against the undisputed German champs.
Bayern is unbeaten at home against Barcelona in competitive games, with four victories and two ties. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in seven straight matches between the two teams in the Champions League.
Tonight (Tuesday) at the Allianz Arena, we anticipate a goal-fest as both clubs are coming off of excellent scoring performances. The teams’ previous encounters imply the same, with over 2.5 goals being the norm. But at a better price, we’ll take more than 3.5 goals.
You can bet on Robert Lewandowski to score when he makes his Allianz Arena comeback. Since being scoreless on matchday-one of the La Liga season, the Polish striker has scored in each of his games.
Our prediction is a tie, and we think it will occur with the same score as when the clubs played to a scoreless draw in 1996, despite the fact that Bayern are strong favourites to win.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona: Head-to-Head
Our Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
