Bayern Munich vs Barcelona betting tips: Champions League preview, predictions & odds

Bayern Munich are set to welcome one of the club’s greatest-ever players in new Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski back to Bavaria in what surely is the tie of the Champions League group stage




Match Preview & Prediction

In the tie that millions have been waiting for after witnessing the group stage draw of this year’s Champions League, German juggernaut Bayern Munich are set to welcome Robert Lewandowski home to the Allianz Arena in the wake of the Polish superstar swapping Bavaria for Catalunya in the wake of becoming the club’s second all-time leading scorer across a brilliant stint with the serial Bundesliga winners.

Barça has started the season in Spain and on the continent like a house on fire this year under Xavi after massive investment in the squad during the summer transfer window and come into their away day in Germany on the back of a 4-0 win against Cadiz at the weekend which came in the wake of a 5-1 thrashing of Viktoria Plzen to open group play last week. And Lewandowski has been at the center of it all already, bagging 9 goals and 2 assists between both competitions, including a hat trick against Plzen.

Bayern, who surprising to many are currently not occupying the top spot in the Bundesliga, come into play on the back of three successive draws on the home front despite a very credible 2-0 away win against Inter Milan last week.

Though they have not missed Lewandowski overall while being lauded for looking a better version of themselves without the mercurial Polish hitman at the start of the season, Julian Nagelsmann’s men have struggled to make their dominance count when only taking a single point each from fixtures against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Union Berlin, and most frustratingly, VfB Stuttgart this past weekend.

The Bavarians will, unfortunately, be without Kingsley Coman but despite the absence of the French international winger, both clubs come in with clean bills of health and are prepared to lock horns in what could end up in a scoring draw given the wealth of talent on offer that is set to take center stage tomorrow. Lewandowski to score on his Bavarian return as well; for extra flavor.

Prediction: Bayern Munich 2-2 Barcelona
