Barcelona vs Bayern Munich: prediction for the Champions League fixture
In the last head-to-head game, Barcelona were crushed by Bayern. Should we expect another confident victory of the Bavarians on September 14? Our answer is in the prediction below.
At the end of the summer, Barcelona received a serious blow: they failed to renew their contract with Lionel Messi. As a result, the Argentine left the club and moved to PSG. In addition, Ronald Koeman's team said goodbye to Antoine Griezmann: the Frenchman returned to Atlético. However, Barcelona looked solid in the first games of the new season. Memphis Depay became the new leader, and he has already scored two goals.
In the first round, Barcelona easily defeated Real Sociedad at home with a score of 4:2. The second game was much more difficult: Athletic Bilbao put up a real fight at home and opened the scoring. But a powerful shot from Memphis Depay leveled the score, and the game was tied. In the last game, Barcelona were stronger than Getafe (2:1). Currently, Barcelona are in seventh place in the table.
Bayern Munichhave also undergone dramatic changes in the offseason. Julian Nagelsmann replaced Hans-Dieter Flick as head coach. However, unlike Barcelona, Bayern Munich have not lost any key players, on the contrary, the squad was strengthened by the signing of central defender Dayot Upamecano.
Bayern have already won a trophy in the new season. They defeated Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup with a score of 3:1. Bayern started the new season of Bundesliga with a draw 1:1 with Borussia Mönchengladbach. After that, they beat Koln (3:2) and Hertha (5:0), and in the last round, the Bavarians left no chances for RB Leipzig (4:1). Bayern are on the second line in the table now.
Bayern won 2 of their last 7 away victories with this score.
In the last 3 games of Bayern, this bet played.
Barcelona scored in the first half in their last 3 home games.
Barcelona started the season well, but so far Koeman's team has not had opponents of Bayern Munich's level. In light of losing key star players, Barca are unlikely to win against Bayern. The Germans have gained momentum in Bundesliga, and we believe they have a better chance for a victory here.
Our prediction -Bayern to win.
Barcelona have played three official games this season and have conceded in each of them. The Catalans regularly fail in defense, and Bayern's powerful attack won't forgive them. We predict a confident victory by two goals for Bayern.
Second bet - Bayern to win by 2 goals.
