Can Bayern Munchen recover from a 3-goal deficit? Answering such question proved to be a difficult one. Since they were destroyed at Camp Nou, the newly-crowned Bundesliga champion have faltered dramatically in their recent domestic matches. Could this be an impending sign of their Champions League fall-out?
The Bavarians did an impressive job of overturning Porto’s 2-goal advantage in the quarter-finals. The German powerhouse netted 5 massive goals, which propelled them to the semis. What was even more interesting was the fact that they did it during the first half.
Bayern remains positive that they could have a repeat of their Porto performance. But this does not seem very plausible as of the moment since the problems that troubled them during their visit at Camp Nou, remain the same.
Sadly, it looks like the Bavarians have to deal with yet another repeat—and that is an exit in the tournament’s final.
Barcelona confidently travels to Allianz Arena with the hope of returning to the Champions League limelight.
It has been a while since Barca appeared in the final of the said competition. They had their taste of a humiliating exit at Bayern’s hands during the 2012/2013 season. And their current encounter readily shows the revenge that they have been waiting for so long.
Lionel Messi will surely give the Bavarians a headache. Yet, the present Barca is not just about Messi. Now, they have Luis Suarez and of course, Neymar, who could unleash an unstoppable rampage on the pitch.
Bayern will do its best to advance, but the online betting favorite, Barcelona will indeed, reap the reward of having an early lead.
