Barcelona v Bayern Prediction (UEFA Champions League) – Barcelona will be hosting Bayern Munich for their first ever match in the UEFA Champions League this season.

Let’s take a look and read on for our winning tips below.
Barcelona v Bayern Prediction - Head to Head
Barcelona v Bayern Prediction - Form (All Competitions)
Chelsea has been inconsistent in their last few performances, managing more draws than wins. Atletico Madrid has also had the same form; the two sides are evenly matched here. Let’s now take a closer look at each side.
Barcelona v Bayern Prediction - Preview
Barcelona received a big blow this summer as their long-time talisman Lionel Messi left after a contract controversy. However, the club was also able to add key figures to the squad, including Sergio Aguero, Luuk de Jong and Memphis Depay. Currently, they are 7th in the La Liga table after 3 matches (W2 D1), and are plagued with injuries, with Aguero, Martin Braithwaite and Ansu Fati on the list. Manager Ronaldo Koeman will most likely count on Depay and Philippe Coutinho, as well as veterans Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets for a strong showing against their German opponents.
- In all major UEFA competitions, Barcelona have lost 7 matches against Bayern, which is three more than they have against any other side (P11 W2 D2 L7).
- The Blaugrana haven’t lost their opening match in a UCL campaign since falling 2-3 against Newcastle United in 1997-98. They are unbeaten in their opener in 22 campaigns since (W17 D5).
FC Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich are looking to reclaim UCL glory since lifting the trophy two seasons ago. While key player Serge Gnabry incurred an injury in the match against Leipzig, manager Julian Nagelsmann still has a solid squad coming into the match. Superstar Robert Lewandowski is in great form, as he has recently scored 8 goals in 5 competitive appearances. He will also most likely be supported by Thomas Muller, Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sane in the clash at Camp Nou.
- In their last meeting in the 2019-20 UCL quarter-final, Bayern won 8-2 against Barça, giving the club its biggest defeat since April 1951 (0-6 against Espanyol).
- Die Roten are undefeated in their last 18 away UCL matches (W14 D4). This is the longest undefeated away run in the tournament’s history.

Barcelona v Bayern Prediction - Final Thoughts
Barcelona post-Messi will still be a force to contend with at full strength. Unfortunately, with a number of key players injured, it would take a miracle for the hosts to overcome the machine that is Bayern. With Lewandowski at the top of his game, and the rest of the squad complementing him, the match should end in a comfortable win for the Bavarian side. Let’s take a look at our prediction.
