Bayern – Barcelona
The Champions League is back in action with another massive fixture between two European behemoths this week as Bayern lock horns with Xavi’s Barcelona on Wednesday. Bayern Munich are at the top of the Bundesliga standings at the moment and have also topped their Champions League group. Barcelona, on the other hand, have endured a difficult campaign so far and will need a victory against the hosts to assure themselves a place in the Round of 16.
Bayern have an excellent record against Barcelona and have won nine out of 14 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to the Catalans’ paltry three victories.
Bayern Munich have a few injury concerns at the moment and might not risk a full-strength side in this fixture. Barcelona will go all-out in this must-win game but are unlikely to defeat the Bavarians in their own backyard.
