Tip Reasoning

  • Bayern Munich have won their last five matches, scoring 27 times
  • The Bavarians have won their opening Champions League game in their last 17 campaigns
  • Bayern are unbeaten in 18 trips in this competition (W14 D4)
  • Thomas Muller has scored six times in five Champions League meetings with Barca

Nightmare start for Barca

All eyes will be on Barcelona as they look to move on without Lionel Messi. Their return to European competition will be a major test of their new side, especially given how much weaker they’re going to be without their greatest ever player.

A soft opening to the campaign would have been welcomed by Barca, instead they’ve got Bayern Munich. The German side have won their last five games ahead of this clash, scoring an incredible 27 goals in that time. Given that Messi’s Barca lost 8-2 when these sides last met, it’s hard to see anything but a Bayern victory.

Muller to haunt Barca again

Robert Lewandowski is usually the go-to man for Bayern goals, but Thomas Muller has previous against the Catalans. He has scored six goals in five UEFA Champions League appearances against Barcelona, the most he’s netted against an opponent in the competition.

That’s also more than any other player has scored against Barca in European Cup/Champions League history. Muller is also just two goals shy of becoming the eighth player to score 50 Champions League goals and I can see him edging closer to that milestone on Tuesday.

Bayern to continue incredible run

Bayern Munich have won their opening match in each of their last 17 UEFA Champions League seasons. They’ve done it in style too, scoring 42 times and conceding only twice. Considering that, a comfortable away win looks to be on the cards.

Playing away from home certainly won’t put Bayern at a disadvantage. They are unbeaten in their last 18 away Champions League matches (W14 D4). When you also consider that in European competition Barcelona have lost seven matches against Bayern Munich – three more than they have against any other side – the away win looks like the best option.

I wouldn’t disagree with anyone backing Bayern with a handicap here, with a 3-1 away win my correct score prediction. Barcelona have the attacking talent to make a dent here, I just don’t see them being able to cope with Muller & co.
