UEFA Champions League
Barcelona v Bayern – Both Teams To Score @ 1.80 (Bet365) – 2 points
Suarez Anytime Scorer @ 2.65 (888Sport) – 1.5 points
The UEFA Champions League; the tournament that Barcelona have reached the semi-finals in for 7 times in the last 8 years; and you must think that their current team is the best its ever been especially with the front 3 of Neymar, Messi and Suarez.
Barcelona spent a lot of money to sign up Suarez in the off-season getting rid of Fabregas, knowing that they needed more offensive fire power; a focal point; someone who can make runs as well as create for others and after a super season in England they had to sign him up. Suarez has knocked 16 goals in the campaign so far, but what makes you feel that he is going to score against Bayern Munich is his recent form. Suarez has scored 5 goals in his last 2 games, 10 in his last 8 games and will be completely fired up knowing that it is his first ever UEFA Champions League semi-final.
What also makes it a good opportunity for him to net is the slightly unsettled Bayern defense who have been chopped and changed for most of the campaign due to a lot of injuries. The Expected back 4 of Rafinha, Boateng, Benatia and Bernat surely makes for a bit of intrigue for Suarez. When defenders do not play regularly together, holding up the line will be very difficult, and especially with Suarez who likes to play on the shoulder of the last defender and make runs, there is every chance he could get a fantastic ball to be free.
Also for Suarez what helps him is that all the focus tomorrow night will be on Messi and Neymar; and as the Bayern defenders could get focussed on those 2; it might give Suarez any opportunity to slip in and net a goal. This is a 50-50 punt especially since Suarez does not take penalties, but his recent form has to suggest that he is going to find one and smash it in the net.
