Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Predictions and Betting Tips
All eyes would be at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night as Barcelona and Bayern Munich fight for three points in the inaugural week of the UEFA Champions League group stage. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
It's not hard to forget Barcelona's 8-2 humiliation in Lisbon last year as the Bavarians breezed their way through their counterparts in the 2019/2020 UCL quarterfinals. Overall, the Germans have managed seven wins in eleven meetings against the Catalans who have beaten their opponents just twice during this period.
Fight for top spot in Group E
Although this is only the first game week of the group, we expect the Catalans to see Tuesday's opponents as the major threat to them finishing atop the group with Benfica and Dynamo Kyiv being relatively weaker opponents. It wasn't a good end to the UEFA Champions League last season for Koeman's troops as they were eliminated by PSG- who also dealt them a massive blow by signing Argentine ace Leo Messi during the transfer window. Things were quite topsy-turvy from then on with the side finishing 3rd in the league. However, it's been a decent start to the season with the Blaugrana picking up seven points from a possible nine in the LaLiga Santander and with the side not in action last weekend given the absence of their CONMEBOL players, they head into this game fresh and ready to go.
Just like their opponents, PSG got the better of Bayern Munich in the latter stages of the UEFA Champions League as Les Parisiens stopped the Bavarians from reclaiming their UCL crown. With the Bavarians picking up their ninth league title in a row, they once again booked themselves a place in Europe's elite competition. There have been wholesale changes in the Bayern squad with the Hansi Flick being replaced with Julian Nagelsmann as well as arrivals and departures in the squad itself. The former Leipzig boss didn't start the season well but given the 4-1 win last time out against his former side, the 34-year-old is settling into things in Munich. Lewandowski, Sane, Musiala and Choupo-Moting were on target at the RedBull Arena as the Bavarians made it 10 points from a possible 12 in the German Bundesliga.
