FC Barcelona v Bayern Munich, UCL Quater-final
The pick of the quarter-finals is a box-office clash that will see powerhouses Barcelona and Bayern Munich locking horns in Lisbon on Friday night.
By their standards, Barcelona have had a relatively disappointing season. They choked in the race for the La Liga title despite going toe-to-toe with eventual champions Real Madrid for the better part of the season. A few disappointing draws and a loss in the title run-in after the resumption all but ended their defence of the La Liga crown.
They now turn their attention on the champions league. They did well to book this date against Bayern. They beat Napoli 3-1 in the second leg of their round of 16, after the first leg ended 1-1 in Naples back in February.
Quique Setien’s will be counting on Messi who showed flashes of his brilliance with a goal, another disallowed goal which was a thing of beauty nevertheless and winning a penalty that Suarez put away.
Bayern are having another amazing season. With the Bundesliga and the German Cup already in the Cup, they are now focusing on winning this Champions League to complete a treble. They are unbeaten in 24 games, winning 23 and drawing one.
They underlined their ‘favourites’ status with a convincing 4-1 victory over Chelsea in the second leg of their round of 16 tie to make it 7-1 on aggregate, having beaten the Londoners 3-0 at Stamford Bridge in the first leg.
Bayern’s dominance is no doubt synonymous with the record setting season their lead striker Robert Lewandowski is having. Having scored a brace in London, he did it again for his 52nd and 53rd goals of the season. He will, of course, be key in this game.

BARCELONA V BAYERN MUNICH BETTING TIPS
Despite Barcelona’s storied European football credentials, it is difficult to place any bet against Bayern right now. The Germans have won an incredible 23 of their last 24 games, which includes the 9 straight wins they got after the resumption of the season to walk away with their 8th consecutive Bundesliga title. Barcelona meanwhile have stumbled quite a bit this season, struggling in games they should win with ease. They have also had a few off the pitch issues with reports on an unhappy Messi coming out. We feel Bayern have the momentum going for them and we are backing them to qualify from this tie @ 1.50 with Betway as the first betting tip of the game.
Looking at both teams, it is undeniable that they both have offensive juggernauts. Messi is always a threat against whichever defense he comes up against. Lewandowski meantime is having a season for the record books. His 53 goals this season include 13 in this competition. We anticipate an all-out shoot-out that should result in quite a few goals. We are therefore picking Over 2.5 goals also @ 1.45 with Betway betting app as our final call for this game.
