Bayern Munich v Barcelona Preview, Champions League, Tuesday 12th May 2015.

Pep Guardiola showed signs of extreme confidence, or an amazing amount of crazy when these two met in the 1st leg in Spain. The world class coach went with a back three which was matched by no doubt the best strike force in the world right now, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the young Brazilian Neymar. The amount of goals Bayern Munich could of conceded in the first fifteen minutes was incredible and it wasn’t long after when Guardiola changed to a back four. Bayern Munich held off Barcelona for 77 minutes and then it went down hill for the Bundesliga Champions.

Barcelona head to Germany very confident of going through to the final and it comes as no surprise seeing as though they have a three goal advantage. Lionel Messi scored a double within a few minutes of each other late in the game, and they Neymar finished off the Germans with Barcelona’s third. As for the La Liga this season we can safely say it is Barcelona’s to lose with two games left and only needing the three points. They have last years Champions Atletico Madrid on Sunday away from home and then Deportivo La Coruna at home. Both games will be tough as Deportivo need the win to avoid relegation, while Madrid are Madrid and always a difficult opponent.

Bayern Munich Team News:

Bayern Munich are once again cursed with winning the Bundesliga title too early and have now gone the last four games with straight loses. The clubs last goal scored was back at the end of April when Robert Lewandowski found the net. Robben is the clubs top scorer although he will be out for the rest of the season with a torn left calf. Ribery is also out for the season with an ankle injury while Rode (fitness) and Badstuber (thigh) also miss out. Alaba and Tom Starke have returned to training while Rico Strieder is still out until further notice.

Barcelona Team News:

Barcelona have a full squad with no injuries right now and even rested five players to face Real Sociedad, in which they still won 2 – 0. Andres Iniesta, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets were among those rested and will no doubt be starters against Bayern Munich in the 2nd leg in Germany.

Bayern Munich v Barcelona Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Champions League semi-final 2nd leg action this Tuesday will see Barcelona travel to Germany and attempt to take on Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich who are in a massive dip of form right now. Barcelona have a 3 – 0 1st leg advantage and will even fancy their chances of a win away from home come Tuesday, even though Bayern Munich will certainly have something to say on that matter as they look to find a way into the final themselves.

Bayern Munich have now lost their last four games in a row and although it matters very little in the Bundesliga a loss is a loss and will always effect the teams confidence and performance. Where as Barcelona have won seventeen out of their last eighteen games, with the other being a draw. The clubs last loss recorded was the 1 – 0 against Malaga at home way back in February.

My predictions for this game will be for Bayern Munich to win one of them, and will go for ta correct scoreline of Bayern Munich 3 and Barcelona the 1 goal making it an exciting game full of goals. The next will be for Suarez to score and for Barcelona to add another win to their incredible run and take them into the final.
