With all Round of 16 games now completed, we have our quarter final line-ups for the UEFA Champions League, and the tie we discuss today certainly is the most exciting and probably most difficult to call. Barcelona take on Bayern Munch in a Friday night cracker in Lisbon for a place in the semi-finals.
Bayern have been tipped to be the favourites at 19/20 however you can never count out the Catalonian Giants who are priced at 12/5. Punters will be happy now that live sports are back up and running but during the lockdown many bookies had seen a trend that punters moved over to the casino’s market to get their entertainment, much like you may find. These games had proven hugely popular, whilst they also pushed many offers and bonuses to both new and returning players. This is a trend that has continued, with sport also returning to our screens.
The Bundesliga was the first major European league to for front the start-up of live football again after Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions and since they were able to showcase their football to the world as everyone was watching to get their football fix, it really showed how good Bayern really are. In fact, they haven’t lost or drawn one of their 18 games since football returned.
Although Barca only finished five points behind the La Liga champions and rivals Real Madrid, they have looked last lustre at times, no fluidity to the play and if we are honest, struggled with quality in the final third. However, you’ve always got a chance when you got the greatest footballer of all times on your team Lionel Messi who can always provide that spark of magic required – but is that going to be enough against one of the favourites for the tournament Bayern Munich at 3/1. We wouldn’t be betting against the well-oiled machine that is Bayern and we advise neither should you.
