It’s BACCKK! The greatest club competition in the world -the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE– is back with the semi-finals of this competition.

UEFA Champions League
Bayern v Barcelona – Over 2.5 goals @ 1.70 (Betfair) – 3.5 points

With Bayern Munich already down 3-0; there is only one way for them to qualify; and that is to score a lot of goals to win the game. While the first leg was extremely cagey; the second leg is expected to be an all out goal festival as both teams have fluid offenses with not the most stable defense at times.

Bayern Munich and Guardiola have almost a full team to chose from other than regular absentees Ribery, Robben, Alaba and Badstuber who are all missing through injury. Bayern will be expected to start up front with Muller, Lewandowski, Gotze as a front 3; ably supported in the midfield by Alonso, Lahm and Thiago. That would represent their best chance of going for goals while giving some cover for the defense. Guardiola knows that he has to go guns blazing for this fixture, and will need to score a minimum of 3 goals without reply in order to qualify.

Barcelona and Enrique know that one goal will effectively at the tie, as Bayern would need to sore 5 goals then to make it through. With a front 3 of Neymar, Messi, Suarez who have been in great form for most of the year; you can definitely expect a lot of goals from them. In the first fixture, despite being quite for 77 minutes; Barcelona gave a masterclass in robbing the entire fixture from Bayern and attacking on the counter attack. With Bayern going in search of goals, it should leave a lot of room for the front 3 of Barcelona to expose them to the counter attack; much like they scored the 2nd and 3rd goals last week.

Over on the goal line will definitely be the way to go, and we all look forward to an enthralling fixture tonight.
