Match Preview

  • Barcelona progressed into this quarter-final after beating Napoli 3-1 last time out (4-2 on aggregate). That result saw the opener netted before the 25th minute for their fourth competitive game in a row (three times by Barcelona), and also means the Spaniards have scored three goals before HT in each of their previous two fixtures.
  • Although outsiders here at the neutral Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, Barcelona have lost just one of their last 13 matches (W9, D3, L1), and are unbeaten in eight UEFA Champions League (UCL) fixtures (W5, D3). Furthermore, that Napoli result also continued a trend that has seen both teams score in six of Barcelona’s last seven UCL games, and the opener netted by the 30th minute in those same six matches.
  • A 4-1 thrashing of Chelsea gave Bayern Munich an 18th consecutive competitive victory, the last four of which saw Bayern score the opener by the 20th minute, lead at HT, and win despite a -1 handicap. Notably, ten of those 18 games saw over 3.5 match goals, whilst 13 featured over 2.5.
  • Bayern are also enjoying an eight-game winning run in this competition, five of which they led at HT. Whilst they kept a clean sheet in four of those games, the other four saw them concede in the first half. However, the Munich outfit did score 70.97% of their goals across those eight games after the break.
  • Players to watch: Luis Suárez has scored between the 40th minute and HT in Barcelona’s previous two matches. Meanwhile, Robert Lewandowski has scored 13 goals for Bayern in his seven UCL matches this season (eight after the 60th minute), as he hunts down Cristiano Ronaldo’s all-time record of 17 UCL goals in one season (2013-14).
  • Stat attack: Barcelona are winless in the last three competitive matches in which they conceded first (D1, L2).
  • There’s been a penalty in Bayern’s last three competitive games.
  • The team that’s scored the opener has won the last four UCL H2Hs.
