Three Markets To Look Out For In Barcelona v Bayern Munich

Barcelona v Bayern Munich odds

The football just keeps on coming.

This Friday, we see two European heavyweights in Barcelona and Bayern Munich go head-to-head in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Bayern are currently the second outright favourites to get their hands on the trophy at 3/1, after winning every single game in the competition so far. They go into Friday night's game as the favourites at 1/1, with Barca being given odds of 5/2.

It's been a season to forget for the Spanish giants so far, watching arch rivals Real Madrid win La Liga, not to mention having their off the field issues between manager and players. CL glory is the only thing left to play for, but they have a big underdog price of 9/1 to do so.

Ahead of the fixture, we've picked out three betting markets.

Over 2.5 goals

If you're after goals, Bayern Munich are your team.

They hit triple digits in the Bundesliga - only one of two sides across Europe's top five leagues to do so. It's been the same story in the Champions League too, with the German side being the competition's top scorers with 31 in just 8 games.

During this time, the over 2.5 goal market has landed seven times, with over 3.5 goals landing five times. Based on Munich's stats alone, over 2.5 at 8/15 looks a solid selection. The Germans are strong going forward and with CL top scorer Robert Lewandowski, many may fancy their price of 9/4 to score 3+.

Barcelona, of course, also have their fare share of talent in the final third. A certain Lionel Messi ran the show against Napoli, grabbing his 31st goal of the season in the process. At the other end though, they have registered just two clean sheets in the competition, one of which came against Slavia Prague.

Neither side like to sit back and defend, so we're fancying goals galore on the night.

Robert Lewandowski to have 1+ headed shot on target

It couldn't be a Bayern Munich betting preview without touching on Lewandowski.

With 53 goals to his name this season, the Polish international has justly been described as the best striker on the planet right now, with many believing that he has been robbed of the chance to win a Ballon d'Or.

Such form has, inevitably, effected his anytime prices. Even in a Champions League quarter-final, his odds to find the back of the net are as short as 8/15.

We've done a bit of digging around his name to find a bit more value and his 7/4 odds to have 1+ headed shot on target caught the eye. Bayern like to play down the flanks and work the ball into the box, where Lewandowski is usually waiting.

Barca aren't recognised for their aerial ability, particularly if the 1.84m striker latches onto the back of one of their full-backs. This market requires just one on target, for a player that has already scored eleven with his head this season. (stat via Transfermarkt)

Jordi Alba to be carded

With nine yellow cards to his name, only Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets in the Barcelona squad have picked up more cautions than Jordi Alba this season.

The Spaniard is a defender that likes to surge forward down the flank, often leaving space for the opposing winger to exploit.

Against Bayern, Alba will have his work caught out against the speedy Serge Gnabry. The latter is enjoying a stellar campaign, scoring 20 goals across all competitions. He's a right-inside forward that enjoys getting in and around the 18-yard-line, causing a nuisance for opposition defenders.

Munich's last two competitive games have been against Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen - both their left-backs (Emerson and Wendell) picked up yellow cards.

Alba's best price on the market to pick up a booking is currently 5/2.
