Bayern v Barcelona Prediction - Form (All Competitions)

BayernWWWLW
BarcelonaLWDWD

Bayern continue to impress in their most recent matches, winning 4 and losing just 1 in their latest five. Meanwhile, Barcelona have failed to find consistent form, with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. Let’s now take a closer look at each side.

Bayern v Barcelona Prediction - Preview

FC Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are seated atop Group, 8 points clear and through to the knockout stages. They soundly beat Dynamo Kiev 1-2 in their last UCL outing at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium. 2021 Ballon d’Or runner-up Robert Lewandowski’s overhead kick on 14 minutes pushed Die Roten ahead, and Kingsley Coman followed it up with a top corner strike just before the break. Denys Harmash cut the lead to 1 in the second half, but the scoreline stood till the end. The boys from Munich are also riding on the momentum from the recent Der Klassiker, beating Borussia Dortmund 2-3 at the Westfalenstadion. Lewandowski’s brace and Coman’s extra goal effectively cancelled out Julian Brandt and Erling Haaland’s efforts. Manager Julian Nagelsmann now is free to experiment against Barça with his side firmly in the next stage, but Bayern won’t giving the visitors the satisfaction of a win that easily.

  • Bayern have won each of their last 3 matches with Barcelona in European competition, which is the longest winning streak against Barça in the European Cup/UCL.
  • Die Roten are undefeated in 5 games when hosting the Blaugrana in European competition (W3 D2), while they’ve won the most recent 2: 4-0 in April 2013 and 3-2 in May 2015, both in the UCL semi-finals stage.

FC Barcelona

Barcelona are seated second in the Group E table, with Benfica only two points behind them. The Blaugrana had to settle for a scoreless draw against their Portuguese opponents in their last match. Both sides failed to make an impact, with Barça’s Ronald Araujo netting in late during the game but was ruled offside. They also escaped a loss as the Aguias’ Haris Seferovic just went wide in stoppage time. Things aren’t also looking good at home, as they bowed 0-1 Real Betis at Camp Nou in their La Liga match. Juanmi’s netter in the 79th minute dealt the Catalans their first defeat under new manager Xavi. With the pressure against them to avoid defeat, could Barça pull off a miracle against the well-oiled Bayern machine?

  • Barcelona just lost two of their last 13 away matches against German clubs in the UCL (W6 D5) and are undefeated in the most recent 3 (W1 D2). The two defeats in the run, however, came from Bayern, in 2012/13 and 2014/15.
  • The Blaugrana have taken only 7 points in the UCL this season (W2 D1 L2). If they lose this match, it will be their 2nd worst performance in terms of points in one group stage in the competition, just behind 1997-98 (5 – W1 D2 L3).

Bayern v Barcelona Prediction - Final Thoughts

Bayern’s dominance throughout the competition has been impressive, and they can take a step back now that they’ve qualified. However, Barcelona face an uphill climb, with a slew of injured players and a home side that won’t give them the satisfaction of an easy victory. Thus, we see the men from Munich continuing their run against the Blaugrana here. With that, let’s take a look at our prediction.
