Barcelona +440 (bet $100 to win $440)
Over/Under: 3.5 (O: -110 | U: -110)
BET BAYERN MUNICH (-200).
Although the value isn’t great, it’s still worth placing a bet on. Bayern has been unstoppable in Bundesliga’s play as well as in Champions League action.
Bayern has won five of the five games. But it’s more than that. It’s also how it’s winning.
Bayern, despite not being the most competitive group in the league, has scored 19 goals in five games and lost 3. It defeated Barcelona in Spain 3-0 thanks to Lewandowski’s goals.
Due to the recent management change at Barcelona, I wouldn’t recommend betting on the road.
Teams like Liverpool and PSG have won without a win. It’s not possible to have a slow Bayern. It should be in its best form and I would bet that Bayern will win.
“LEAN” to UNDER 3.5 (-110). Barcelona’s backline has plenty of experience, which should help it to tame the insanely talented Bayern attack.
Barcelona’s defenders Gerard Pique (and Jordi Alba) are both expected to start. This should allow them to stop a team that scored 3 goals last time they met and had 7 attempts on target. Barcelona has only allowed 6 goals in UCL play and 5 goals in five games.
Barcelona is just as bad as it was when it faced Bayern in the first meeting. We should have something to win in this one. This will make UNDER 3.5 (-110) a better choice.
