Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Prediction and Betting Preview 14 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-8
Barcelona vs Bayern Munich PredictionUnder the floodlights of the illustrious Estadio da Luz, Barcelona will lock horns with German giants Bayern Munich in a one-off Champions League quarterfinal fixture on Friday night, both sides looking to lay their hands on a ticket to the next phase of the tournament.
Match status: 2019/20 Champions League - Play Offs Quarter-finals
Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisbon)
Undoubtedly the biggest CL fixture this week, the city of Lisbon is expected to be buzzing as they prepare to host two of the biggest sides in club football. Take nothing away from this game, it should be a frantic, exciting and nervy encounter between these sides.

With Barcelona managing a mixed run all season in the Spanish La Liga, relinquishing the title to archrivals Real Madrid, Bayern Munich strolled to Bundesliga success once again – their 30th league honor. In fact, the Bavarians did not stop there, propelling themselves to DFB Pokal glory also.

While Bayern have turned undisputable giants in Germany, their record in Europe is pretty disturbing for a club of their stature – lifting the CL trophy just twice in their history. Seeking to go all the way this season, Der FCB will need to put their best foot forward in this fixture to advance any further.

Getting their domestic campaign off to a flyer, Barcelona quickly rose to the top of the standings in no time. Leaving their rivals grasping for straws behind them, the Blaugrana looked on course for a third consecutive La Liga title – one feat that would have been hugely immense.

However, Barca hit a rough patch following the coronavirus pandemic that crippled sporting activities, bringing Spanish football action to a halt in March. While they had been mesmerizing prior to the break, Setien’s charges looked a shadow of their former ruthless selves after the restart.

With their dip-in-form, you wonder what these players had been up to during the break, as they returned to the pitch misfiring on all fronts. Struggling to keep up momentum, their archrivals Real Madrid were tearing the league apart, ultimately displacing Barca from the league summit.

Make no mistake about it. Even though Barcelona have been largely disappointing in Spain this term, their form in the Europe deserves commending. Having toppled Dortmund and Inter Milan in Group F of the CL, the Blaugrana eased into the knockout phases of the competition.

Against Napoli in the last-16, they were made to scrap really hard to deliver a win, ultimately securing a hard-fought 4-2 aggregate win over Gli Azzurri. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich have arguably been the best European side this season, with their exploits in Germany, and indeed Europe.

After completing the domestic double with Bundesliga and DFP Pokal title wins, the Bavarians will be looking to secure a treble, putting the ice on the cake in what has been an outstanding season for the Germans. Clinching maximum points from Group B of the CL, they were the only side to manage this.

Also, they are unbeaten in the Champions League this season, emerging victorious in all of their eight fixtures in the competition so far. They knocked English side Chelsea for six last time out to book a place in the last-eight, roaring to an emphatic 7-1 win over the Blues.

With their sights set on clinching a first European title since 2013, Bayern will be itching to get on the pitch this Friday to take on Spanish juggernauts Barcelona. They will be wary of the threat posed by the Blaugrana with the likes of Messi and Suarez within their ranks.
