The team coached by Xavi Hernández is in third place in its group with one win, one draw and two defeats, results that have earned them only four points and place them below Bayern and Inter Milan. For Barça, winning this match is a must, and even so, qualifying for the next round would not be guaranteed.
In the domestic league, the “Blaugranas” are in the second place with 28 points and only behind the current leader, Real Madrid. Although Bayern will most likely sentence the fate of the Spanish team, the Culés will be looking to replicate their performances in the domestic league for this FC Barcelona vs Bayern.

For this exciting Champions League match between FC Barcelona vs Bayern, we believe that both teams will share points.
Although both teams are at a very high level, Bayern’s style of play and determination will make it very difficult for the blaugranas at home. It is a fact that Xavi Hernandez’s team will be looking to press from the first minute, but defense is one of the Bavarians‘ greatest strengths.
Prediction: 2-2 draw.
