Bayern munich, who are just coming off winning another league title and taking apart a solid chelsea team 4-1 in their last tournament leg, are no doubt the best team in the world right now. They are led by the second best striker in the world in Robert lewandowski who is top 5 in goals scored. the bayern attack and team as a whole are arguably the fastest unit in the world also. they face a Barcelona team who are led by one of the two GOATS of the sport, Lionel Messi, the X factor. This Barcelona team though have been very lackluster overall as a unit, very sporadic. They lost their Spain league title for the first time in a few years, and have lost their luster from previous years. Now to brass tacks! There could not be a worse matchup for Barcelona than Bayern, Bayern are a fast well oiled machine and Barcelona are inconsistent. The back four(defense) for Barcelona are very shaky, i do not see them keeping Bayern from creating heavy pressure in the key areas near goal. The back four for Bayern can also be suspect at times ..which in honesty does worry me because they are going against Lionel Messi, Suarez and griezman. I am counting on Bayern’s wing backs(the defenders closest to each sideline. One left and one right) to have stellar games, Alphonso Davies is the man to watch for Bayern in the back 4. His speed is not only a great defensive weapon, he can turn it into offense and in the blink of an eye Bayern score. I see a vital overall contribution from him on Friday. Advantage on defense: Bayern. In the midfield we have a pretty solid unit for Bayern, advantage here as well for Bayern. They are playing with big physical, technical midfielders in goeretzka and kimmich. Barca have a young de jong who is bright but cannot do it all, especially when their coach( 🚨) doesnt pair the right players up with him to bring the best out. The midfield is the engine of the game, i firmly expect kimmich and goeretzka to handle business looking like two sharks swimming in water. In terms of coaching, this isn’t even close, hanse flick isn’t a top 5 coach in the world to me personally, but he out coaches quique setien in his sleep. The guy is going to be fired after this season... hell, if Barcelona lose is game he will be fired. All in all, i expect lewandowski to have his way, i expect bayern to net 2 minimum on Friday. I can see a Barcelona score, but anything over one and I’d be reaching. Barcelona looks decent on paper, but the game vs napoli should not fool anyone into thinking they can knock bayern out, especially in 90 minutes of play. Bayern are the better team from head to toe, organization on down they are better. They should be -250 in my opinion we’re getting value here. Barring any major injuries or lineup set backs this should be no sweat for Bayern
