Bayern Munich vs Barcelona
UEFA Champions League
Tuesday 13th September 2022.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona: Prediction
Bayern have defeated this opponent in their previous fur meetings. The combined aggregate score from those fixtures is 16-5 in favour of the German club. Hence, I have backed them to pick up all three points.
Robert Lewandowski has scored 344 goals in 375 goals for the Bavarian club. He continues his form in Catalonia scoring nine goals in six fixtures. Backing the Polish striker to score anytime looks like a safe option.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona: Betting odds
- Full time result: Bayern Munich @ 1.96 odds.
- Robert Lewandowski to score anytime @ 2.37 odds.
Possible starting lineups:
Neuer; Pavard, De Ligt, L Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Sabitzer; Gnabry, Muller, Sane; Mane
Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, E Garcia, Balde; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele
Xavi Hernández, Barcelona coach: “Tomorrow doesn’t change anything, whether we win, draw or lose. We can’t draw any conclusions based on one game, but it’ll be a big challenge and a big achievement for us to win here. We’ve been working together for nine months and we see ourselves capable of competing tomorrow. We’re excited.”
Julian Nagelsmann, Bayern coach: “[Barcelona] are aggressive and defend high, with midfielders like Gavi and Pedri. I expect a tough game tomorrow. A lot of [our starting] positions are already decided. Lucas will start; I don’t know yet who’s going to play next to him. Upamecano has had more games against Lewy and always defended well against him. But I haven’t made that decision.”
