Top bookmakers to bet our Barcelona vs Bayern tips
Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Betting PreviewAll eyes will be on Barcelona as they look to move on without Lionel Messi. The Blaugrana have started La Liga with two wins and a draw in their first three outings. Home wins over Real Sociedad (4-2) and Getafe (2-1 at the weekend) sandwiched an away draw at Athletic Bilbao (1-1). The Catalans did not play this weekend against Sevilla as the game was postponed due to the late arrival of South American players. The Catalans are clearly rebuilding their team amid a huge financial crisis.
Bayern Munich failed to win their opening Bundesliga match at Borussia Monchengladbach (1-1) but then they recorded five straight wins, including a 3-1 over Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup and a 12-0 victory over Bremer in the DFB Pokal. As to the league, they trashed Hertha 5-0 at home and eased past RB Leipzig at the weekend with a 4-1 away success. The Bavarians sit 2nd in the Bundesliga table, since Wolfsburg has a 100% winning record so far.
Best OddsBayern are favourites to get all three points here, with 10Bet pricing them at 21/20. The best price for the draw is 16/5 offered by Unibet while Barcelona are backable at 27/10 with Unibet.
Probable Line-UpsBarcelona (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Roberto, Araujo, Pique, Alba; Busquets, F. de Jong, Pedri; Depay, L. de Jong, Coutinho
Barça head into the match with a severely-weakened squad. Ansu Fati, Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Aguero are out injured, meaning that Philippe Coutinho and Luke De Jong will partner Memphis Depay upfront. Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto and Sergino Dest are major doubts meaning that Oscar Mingueza is on stand-by to start as right back, with Ronald Araujo partnering Gerard Piquè at the heart of the back. The likes of Frenkie De Jong, Sergi Busquets and Pedri will start in the middle of the park.
Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Muller, Musiala; Lewandowski
Kingsley Coman and Corentin Tolisso are the only two absentees from the win over Leipzig with calf issues and should miss this game. Robert Lewandowski will lead the line, supported by three offensive midfielders such as Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller and Jamal Musiala. As alternative, Julian Nagelsmann has Marcel Sabitzer (signed from RB Leipzig) and Serge Gnabry, who is not 100% fit. The likes of Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich will anchor the midfield. Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard have returned to bolster the rearguard while new signing Dayot Upamecano feature from the off as centre-back.
Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Betting TipsThe last time these two clubs met, 13 months ago, Bayern Munich recorded an infamous 8-2 drubbing of Barcelona in the 2020/21 Champions League quarter finals. Bayern Munich have not suffered defeat on the road in Europe's elite tournament since losing 3-0 at PSG four years ago - winning 14 and drawing four away from home since then. Considering all the absences for the home side, we are backing Bayern to win again at Camp Nou. The margin should not be as big as that 8-2 success, but the 3-1 Correct Score is intriguing. Lewandowski, of course, is the main candidate to open the score sheet. The youngster Musiala is another interesting option.
