BAYERN MUNICH are a biggest 20-1 with bet365 to complete a miraculous Champions League recovery on Tuesday and the price looks about right.
Barcelona lead 3-0 from last week’s first leg and are no bigger than 1-41 with 888sport to reach the Final. At that price only weighed-in MPs who have lost their seats will be able to afford to get on.
Bayern boss Pep Guardiola has witnessed many Lionel Messi masterclasses but last week was one he didn’t enjoy. The Argentine superstar stunned his ex-Barcelona boss with a double that leaves the Spaniards with one adidas boot in the Champions League Final.
I’m sure Guardiola will give it a go in the Allianz Arena but you can’t be too open when faced by the likes of Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.
Bayern hit back from 3-1 down away to smash six past Porto at home in the last round but this is an altogether tougher task.
To win on the night the Germans are 13-8 at William Hill but it’s unlikely as they’re on a run of four defeats (including a German Cup semi-final loss on penalties to Dortmund) – their worst sequence for 24 years – and remain without Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery.
Barca are 7-4 with Stan James and it’s tempting but they don’t need to win or even draw so it’s a brave bet. A safer option is Barca draw no bet at 19-20 with Coral.
Best bet could be to focus on goals. Both to net pays 8-15 at McBookie and over 2.5 goals is 19-29 at 888sport. I’m having a small punt on over 3.5 at 17-10 with McBookie.
It took 77 minutes for the Nou Camp opener but there could be an early strike if Bayern come flying out the traps and a goal in the first 15 minutes pays 9-4 at 888sport.
Messi is 5-1 at Stan James to score first and 25-19 with 888sport at any time. Thomas Muller is Bayern’s best chance of a goal at 2-1 with 888sport.
