Barcelona vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Bayern Munich has an organized and perfect lineup. But Kingsley Coman will not play against Barcelona due to injury. However, the German club has already drawn three out of the six matches they played so far in Bundesliga. They will try to dominate Barcelona at home ground in the Champions League and boost their confidence level. The Bavarians have a stunning head-to-head record against the Spanish club. Barcelona has conceded 20 goals in their last five Champions League games against Bayern.
Still, there are concerning facts about Barcelona too. The team has more substitution options to make a difference. Again their head coach Xavi Hernandez has a good record in high-profile matches since taking the role. The football world will enjoy a hard fight on Tuesday. The game is expected to tie with each scoring two goals.
