Barcelona v Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips: Match Preview
Surprising to all expectations, Barcelona failed to win their first match from the Champions league group stage. Current performance rating 79% winning 5 and losing just one of the last 7 matches.
The loss came a week ago against Celta in Primera Division, where Barcelona lost the game with 1-4. Against their German opponent, Barcelona has played 4 games, winning all 4, scoring 14 goals and conceding just 3. The last victory was in 2012 in Champions League, with Barcelona winning 7-1.
Overall against Bundesliga teams, Barcelona has a record on Camp Nou of W20-D1-L7. Despite the mixed results lately, Blaugrana will be seeking their first victory of the Champions League season, so the victory @ 1.40 looks like a solid betting choice.
Earlier this weekend Lionel Messi was injured in the match against Las Palmas, so we won’t be seeing him in this game, but Suarez and Neymar are fit, priced to score at anytime respectively @ 1.80 and 2.00
Leverkusen started the season well with a victory over the outsider of the group Bate Borisov with 4-1. Tough group with even tougher games ahead, but the Germans may have no trouble advancing ahead, if they manage to pick up a few points against the favorites.
Hard match and opponent ahead, against which Leverkusen has no victory in the last 4 games, and has conceded 14 goals in those matches. Leverkusen’s record in Spain does not look promising either W3-D2-L10.
With Messi absent, the German team has one thing less to worry, and if there’s a time when they can be looking forward to steal points, perhaps this is it. It’s no secret Barcelona’s overall win ratio with and without Messi is quite different. Either ways, Leverkusen is priced as an outsider here with odds to win @ 9.00 and odds to draw @ 5.00
With Lionel Messi absent, Barcelona may lose their rhythm and have trouble in this game, but seeking their first victory in the season should be motivating enough. Back Barcelona to win @ 1.40.
With 14 goals in 4 games against this opponent we expect Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.61 as well.
