Will there be a rematch for 2:8?
On Tuesday, September 14, at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona with a capacity of 99,354 spectators, as part of the first round of the Champions League group stage.
The Catalans have played only three matches this season. First, they beat Real Sociedad, then drew with Athletic, and then got the better of Getafe. As a result, Ronald Koeman’s wards rested and did not hold a championship match at the weekend, preparing directly for the game with Bayern.
Despite the departure of Lionel Messi and the injuries of important players, Barcelona still has to give Bayern a fight and get out of the group, including Benfica Lisbon and Dynamo Kyiv. Any other result of Koeman’s team will be considered a failure.
Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto, Serginho Dest, Ousmane Dembele, Moussa Vahe, Martin Braithwaite and Sergio Aguero are in the infirmary Barca. All of them will not be able to help the team in this match — very tangible losses.
The Munich team is doing great with the squad. The German champions will not count only on Serge Gnabry and Corentin Tolisso in this game. All the other leading players are in the ranks and ready for the fight.
Bayern approaches the game in a great mood and the rank of the favourite. At the weekend, Julian Nagelsmann defeated Leipzig and is still in second place in the German championship standings. The Bavarians have already managed to take one trophy this season. They beat Dortmund without any problems in the match for the Super Cup of the country and did not win only once out of six, having drawn with Gladbach. Now Bayern has a five-match winning streak.
The opponents played only 12 matches between them. The real advantage is on the side of “Bayern”, which won in 8 matches. A draw was recorded two more times, and Barcelona won twice.
In the last full-time match, which took place in 2020, Bayern mocked Barcelona and won with a score of 8:2.
Bookmakers consider Bayern the favourite of the match and offer to bet on its victory with a coefficient of 2.01. The draw is estimated at 4.10, and the success of Barcelona is quoted at 3.50.
We are betting that the match will end in a draw.
