Barcelona needs to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds after losing the first leg by four goals to none, but the Catalans will give their best nonetheless. Bayern is virtually qualified for the final, but after Dortmund barely missed their objective despite scoring four goals of their own, the Germans should be extra careful.
Match: Barcelona vs Bayern
Odds: Bet365 1.85
Bayern has a 10 point advantage in Bundesliga, so there is no reason to keep any players on the bench to have them rested for the next round played against Dortmund. On the other hand, the visitors will probably focus on avoiding any injuries, as they will need their best starting 11 in the Champions League final. Following a dazzling display in Munich, Heynckes will field the same starting formation and only operate changes if in-game events require him to do them.
Whether the hosts were inspired by the fact that their archrivals came painfully close to advancing to the final stage of the competition or seek a victory for the fans, it is certain that Barcelona will give the visitors a run for their money. Fans do remember the 4-0 victory over AC Milan and know that a similar outcome would send the game in overtime, therefore give them a second chance. Messi was disappointing in the first leg, but if the Argentinian striker comes out firing on all cylinders from the first minute, the semifinal can turn into a scoring festival.
Unlikely as it is for Barcelona to beat the odds and make it to the final, the Spanish team should secure a home victory over Bayern. Bet365 offers odds of 1.85 for this outcome and they contain enough value to justify the wager, despite what happened in Munich one week ago.
