Bayern was playing quite well for the most of the game against Barcelona in first leg, not being limited to a very passive role and having a nice share of ball possession, however last fifteen minutes of the match were complete disaster for them, as the team conceded three goals and almost now have no real chances of progressing to the big finals.
Messi changed the situation near the end of the match with two goals within three minutes, while Neymar sealed the 3:0 victory during additional time. The team overall is far from their good form, as they have four negative results in a row – losing in semifinals at home against Dortmund in German Cup on penalty kicks, but also suffering defeat away to Leverkusen, this one against Barca – and finally, last weekend at home against Augsburg 0:1. They were playing with a man less since 13th minute when goalkeeper Reina got excluded, while the visitors scored the only goal twenty minutes before the full time whistle. The Bavarians continue having huge problems with injured players, as they miss wingers Arjen Robben (21/17) and Franck Ribery (15/5), but also defensive midfielder Sebastian Rode (21/2), left back/central defender David Alaba (19/2) and central back Holger Badstuber (14/1), all being injured.
Barcelona, on the other side, comes from a 2:0 professionally taken victory at home against Real Sociedad last weekend, but more important fact for them is that Real made a setback in their game against Valencia and that they now have a huge chance to seal the victory in next round, being four points above them with two rounds to be played.
Opponent was outplayed, but the victory came with goals scored in the second halftime via Pedro and Neymar with the team probably playing with their heads being a bit in Munich. Anyhow, they have a clear situation here, as the team comes pretty much relaxed, knowing that the defeat of three goals difference can’t be that possible. Their coach Luis Enrique has no injury or suspension worries for this clash, so the team will surely be fielded in their strongest eleven. German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is set to be between the posts instead of Claudio Bravo as it’s a custom for Cup matches.
Germans will have to attack here somehow, but Barcelona exactly needs that this time. Spaniards should once again be able to show real class here, maybe even easier than it was in the first leg. Odds surely are worth a try.
