Barcelona hosts Bayern Munich
Barcelona hosts Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou in a game from Group E of the Champions League. That’s our football prediction betting tips today for this amazing fixture.
Barcelona start the new Champions League season after some great changes. The club’s talisman Lionel Messi shockingly left in the summer while Antoine Griezmann also returned to his former team Atletico. This means that the manager Ronald Koeman must start rebuilding the side without two of the biggest stars, especially Messi.
Koeman has some problems in attack because he has a lot of forwards missing – Ousmane Dembele, Ansu Fati, Sergio Aguero and Martin Braithwaite are all injured. This means that the new signing Luuk de Jong will probably start alongside Memphis Depay. Among the options for the starting eleven are also Coutinho and the young signing Yusuf Demir. If Koeman decides to switch to 4-4-2 then Sergi Roberto could find a place in the team as well.
Bayern Munich could have Serge Gnabry missing for this game. The winger injured himself during the weekend so he could be sidelined. Robert Lewandowski also left the last game with a problem, but it’s expected that he’d start. The young gem Jamal Musiala could replace Gnabry in the line-up against Barca.
After a slow start, Bayern Munich are really getting in a shape with their new head coach Julian Nagelsmann. The Bavarians are in a run of five consecutive wins and they scored 27 goals in these five games. Yes, this is the correct number. Bayern showed their muscle against Nagelsmann’s former club RB Leipzig in the weekend and celebrated an impressive 4-1 win.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Champions League fixture between Barcelona and Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou. These two teams are meeting for a first time since Bayern’s shocking 8-2 win against Barca in 2020. Let’s see what’s going to happen this time.
