Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first leg of the semi finals in the UEFA Champions League, tonight at Camp Nou, FC Barcelona host Bayern Munich.
Barcelona is in the amazing form and one of the main candidates to win the UEFA Champions League. They are doing good job in Primera, where they stand at the top of the table with two points more than Real Madrid. In the last five won matches in all competitions, Barca scored 20 goals, while on the other side they didn’t concede one single goal. Barcelona have amazing attacking trio: Messi – Suárez – Neymar, and the German side will have many problems to save their net.
“We have to score goals and not concede any, which means we have to be a complete team.” – said Luis Enrique, Barcelona coach.
Bayern Munich came to Barcelona after two consecutive lost matches, but they believe that can make some positive result. This match will be special for their coach Josep Guardiola, who’s back where he used to play. Team from Munich have already won the title in Bundesliga, but they want to qualify in the UEFA Champions League and play the final on “home ground” in Berlin.
Josep Guardiola:”Barcelona have the advantage of knowing me rather than me knowing them.”

Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Betting Tip and Predictions
These two teams have already met in the semi finals of the same competition two years ago and the German side was more than better, beating Barca twice (4-0, 0-3). In this moment, Barca is in the better position. They have almost full squad available, they are playing upfront their supporters and what is the most important: they are in the great form. On the other side, Bayern is a very good team, but due to many problems with absences, I’ll give an advantage to home side.
