Bayern Munich Vs Barcelona Match Preview and Statistics
Bayern Munich started their UEFA Champions League campaign with a 2-0 away win over Inter Milan. But they haven’t had the best time in the Bundesliga of late, as their last three matches have ended with draws after starting the season with a hat-trick of victories. That didn’t deter them from proving their quality against Inter, though, and Bayern will be looking to deliver a strong performance against Barcelona.
The head-to-head record between the two sides is also in Bayern’s favour. They have won eight out of the 11 encounters against Barcelona in the UCL over the years while losing only twice. That also includes victories in the last four matches against Barca, and they will be eager to make it five in a row now.
The head-to-head record might not be in Barca’s favour, but Xavi and his men have been enjoying a stellar run of form. They have won all their last five encounters in all competitions, including their 5-1 win against Viktoria Plzen in their first UCL 2022/23 game of the season.
Robert Lewandowski scored a hat-trick in the game, and he will be looking to carry his form forward into this match as he faces his former club Bayern. Barca also had 11 shots on target in the previous UCL match, which was the joint-most for any side in round 1 of the competition. Barcelona odds confirm the team is in great shape now, and the arrival of new players like Lewandowski is working wonders for them. They will have their sights set on bettering their record against Bayern now.

Bayern Vs. Barca Betting Tips and Predictions
Both Teams To Score @ 1.40 (2/5)
This is the safest bet among all the Champions League Bayern Barca odds. Bayern Munich and Barcelona have quality attacking players in their ranks, and they can be expected to get the better of both defences in this game.
Barcelona to Win or Draw @ 2.00 (1/1)
While the head-to-head record is in Bayern’s favour, Barcelona is the more in-form team, having registered victories in all their last five encounters across competitions. So, they can be expected to win this contest or be held to a draw. According to the Champions League bet offer, a loss looks like their least probable outcome.
The total Number of Goals Will Be an Odd Number @ 1.85 (6/7)
We can expect one of the teams (Barcelona has a higher chance) to win the contest; hence, we are backing the total goals to be scored as odd. There is a lot to gain from this Bayern Munich vs Barcelona betting odds if you are willing to bet on this.
Sadio Mane to Be the First Goal-Scorer @ 6.00 (5/1)
This is the most attractive among all the Bayern vs Barcelona odds listed here. Bayern’s Sadio Mane can be expected to be the first goal-scorer in this contest as Barcelona’s left-flank is relatively weak. They might find Mane’s pace and skills too tough to deal with, and we might see him netting the first goal of this contest.
Draw at Half-time, Barcelona to Win at Full-time @ 8.50 (15/2)
A lot will be at stake for both teams in this match, and that’s why they would look to play it safe in the first 45 minutes. So, it could be a goalless draw at half-time. But we can fully expect things to heat up in the second half, and Barcelona will be expected to ace the contest, considering their scoring form of late.
Bayern has lost one of their key players to injury going into this clash against Barca. French international Kingsley Coman is expected to be sidelined until the international break as he has picked up a muscle strain.
On the other hand, Xavi has a clean bill of health as far as his Barcelona squad is concerned. They will go into this encounter with a fully fit squad.
