Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Match Preview

It is the Champions League quarter-final stage at Lisbon, and the clash between La Liga giants Barcelona and the German Champions Bayern Munich will be one of the most anticipated matches in the UCL fixtures this season.

With both teams being two of Europe's best teams in the mix, the fight for a place in the last four of the UCL table will dominate the headlines this week since both teams have what it takes to trouble the other side in ninety minutes.

Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Match Preview

Barcelona will be back from a stellar win at home against Napoli in their second leg of the UCL play-offs with a 3-1 score on the board. The Catalan giants handed their La Liga title to Real Madrid as they finished five points behind the Galacticos in the table.

Seiten will be concerned about his team's fragile back-line and the troubles they end up with when playing away from Camp Nou. There has been a rumor of unrest in the Barca camp and if it is true, then Lionel Messi and Co. will face the Bavarians at a backhand.

Having won the Bundesliga and German Cup this season, Bayern Munich will aim for a treble win for their shelf back at the Allianz Arena. Hansi Fleck and his men have proved their strength in the Bundesliga with 20 unbeaten league clashes in their schedule this season.

Since the lockdown was lifted, the Bavarians have won nine games straight in the league fixtures to become the Bundesliga champions for their 29th title until now. Their German Cup came with a 4-2 win against Leverkusen, and will visit after a 4-1 win at home against Chelsea in the second leg; with an aggregate of 7-1 in the UCL play-offs.

Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Head-to-head (h2h)

Since 1996, the teams have met 11 times and Bayern has won 6 times while Barca has 3 wins. Only two of their clashes have ended in a draw; in 2009 and 1996.

The teams have averaged 3.1 goals in their meetings so far, and the Bavarians have scored 18 goals, and the Catalan giants slotted in 16 goals in that period.

Only one of their recent five fixtures has seen both teams score, and it was in their most recent clash in which Bayern won at home with a 3-2 scoreline in the 2015 UCL semi-finals.

Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Prediction

The Bavarians could prove too much for Barcelona's crippling defense, and the latter cannot depend fully on Lionel Messi to run the show when Lewandowski is lurking around their penalty box.

Besides, the Catalan giants have lost more UCL games to Bayern than any other team. Five of their 8 UCL meetings have favored the German giants in the end, with just one draw and two wins for the Spaniards.

The draw no bet over Bayern Munich and the Bavarians to qualify will probably be the best bet for the punters regarding the result of the quarterfinals at Lisbon.

Barca should still find the back of the net since they have been unbeaten in this year's competitions and have only two losses in their last 18 fixtures in the schedule. So, a BTTS will come in handy for the Friday night.

Another sensation of the match will be the fight between Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi. The Argentinean wonder has scored only half of the 14 goals scored by his Polish counterpart in the UCL so far this season.

Their feud will probably turn the celebrations alive with a high-scoring affair. With his form at the peak, the Poland Center-forward is likely to slot in a goal at least within ninety minutes past Ter Stegen's guard.
