2020 Champions League Predictions: Bayern Munich Prove Too Slick for Barcelona in QF Clash.
Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich Betting Preview
Barcelona and Bayern Munich boast 10 UEFA Champions League titles between them (five apiece), but only one can advance past this year’s quarter-finals after titans collide on Friday.
In a matchup that wouldn’t look out of place as any season’s final, the Bundesliga champions will be determined to ensure Quique Setien finishes his first season as Barca manager without a trophy to his name.
It’s rare the Blaugrana are found at odds as long as +240 (3.40), but that’s the moneyline price Borgata is offering on Barcelona to win their quarter-final clash in 90 minutes.
Bayern are clear front-runners at +100 (2.00) while the draw attracts a highest price of +290 (3.90), which could be where the money lies in a battle between similarly matched monoliths.

Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich Prediction
Die Roten are deserved favorites, too, when one examines the head-to-head record between these two organisations, never mind the undeniable form of this current Bayern selection. The German giants have won six of their 10 competitive meetings overall, while Barca have triumphed in only two.
The Catalan club edged past Napoli with a 4-2 aggregate win after drawing 1-1 in Italy in the first leg, while Bayern were noticeably more dominant en route to beating Chelsea 7-1 over 180 minutes.
Hansi Flick has marshalled Bayern back into a team that looks worthy of becoming Europe’s best, with Robert Lewandowski powering their charge in a season that’s seen him score 53 times already.
Lionel Messi still reigns supreme for Barcelona, but there’s a sense that Setien isn’t as capable, nor does he boast as balanced a lineup as his Allianz Arena counterpart.
Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich Prediction: Barcelona 1-3 Bayern Munich
