In our preview of Bayern Munich vs. FC Barcelona we will provide you with all the important facts and stats for this Champions League fixture. Let’s start by having a look at the current form of the two teams involved.
In their last five Champions League encounters, Bayern Munich managed to get 4 wins against FC Barcelona, while Barcelona scored 1 win. On 0 occasions, there was no winner.

Barcelona face a gargantuan task when they travel to Germany on Wednesday night to lock horns with Bavarian giants Bayern Munich in the final round of the Champions League Group E matches.
The Spanish giants are in a dogfight with Benfica for the final qualification spot from the group while Bayern are already through to the knockout round as group winners.
We expect Barcelona to put up a fight here which could potentially open up this game. Our football betting tips today in this preview will be derived from Yangasport – one of our new Nigerian betting sites – and Worldsportsbetting.
True to their form over the last few seasons, Bayern Munich made minced meat of the group stages once again, with five wins from their five group games to qualify for the round of 16 as one of just three teams (along with Ajax and Liverpool) with a 100% record after matchday 5.
They are coming into this match off a 3-2 win over Dortmund in an eventful Der Klassiker at the weekend. Robert Lewandowski’s late controversial penalty sealed the win that helped them create a 4 point cushion ahead at the summit of the Bundesliga.
Goals have been their staple food this season, particularly at the Allianz Arena this season where Dynamo Kiev and Benfica have both been on the receiving end of 5-goals haul from the Bavarians. Having already qualified though, Nagelsmann may opt to give some of his stars some rest here.
As many pundits had predicted, Barcelona have found the going rough as they began life without Messi who left the club in the summer for PSG. They are out of the La Liga title fight and are literally fighting in a fight for their lives as they try to make it to the round of 16 from this group.
A pair of 1-0 wins over Dynamo Kiev is all they have to show in this year’s campaign. Those have however helped them to 2nd place in the group with 7 points, just 2 points above Portuguese side Benfica who held them to a goalless stalemate in the penultimate round of group games.
La Blaugrana are staring at the possibility of dropping down to the Europa League unless they win this match or Benfica fail to beat Dynamo Kiev.

BAYERN MUNICH VS BARCELONA PREDICTIONS
This game has goals written all over it. Not just because Bayern scores a ton of them, but mostly because of the dynamics in the group. There is a lot at stake for Barcelona here as far as making it out of the group is concerned. They, therefore, have no option but to come out and attack. Bayern is expected to field a relatively weakened outfit which could help their cause. However, this is likely to leave them exposed at the back. Bayern have all sorts of offensive weapons and they will make them pay. As such we fancy a goal fest here and we are picking Over 3.5 Goals @ 1.99 with Yangasport for our initial tip.
Barca have shown some signs of a new lease of life under Xavi. The weekend 1-0 loss at home to Betis is his only loss in the six matches he has taken charge of. With the prospect of unchartered territory in the form of Europa League football staring at them, we feel they will be motivated enough to try and avoid defeat. As such, Handicap +2 Barcelona Win @ 1.48 with Worldsportsbetting looks attractive enough as our final prediction.
