Game of the week: Barcelona - Bayern Munich

13.08.2020

The Champions League is quickly speeding towards its conclusion, and only the best of the best are still in the race. This Friday, two European football giants go head to head as Barcelona meets Bayern Munich in Lisbon for their quarter-final matchup. Hard to believe that we’ll be waving goodbye to one of these stellar outfits this Friday!

Of course, there’s more than just the sportive attraction. In this article, we will be giving you the lowdown on the statistics of both teams. That way, you can be sure that you make the most informed decision when you place your bets. After all, isn’t top-tier football so much more fun if you can make a little money on the side?

Barcelona – Bayern Munich (Friday, August 14, 9 p.m., Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica, Lisbon, Portugal)

As the Champions League needs to wrap up before the participants start their national competitions again, the games leading up to the title fight take on a single-match format. The winner takes all in this true cup-like setting! As there are no second chances or do-over, nerves will be tense for all teams involved. This is even more so the case for Barcelona and Bayern Munich, two of the greatest football clubs in recent (and less-than-recent) history. We should expect both team icons Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski to command the attention their way.

The title in La Liga may have escaped Barça’s grasp this year, but contrary to 2019-2020 Spanish champion Real Madrid, the Catalonians are still going strong in their European club competition. Their run was not without struggles, though: while they did top their Group F, they needed to step up their game to boot SSC Napoli out of the competition. Bayern Munich, on the other hand, has won all of its Champions League games this year. Die Bayern show no sign of stopping, but is their strong form enough to beat a prize-hungry Barcelona?
