FC Barcelona Liverpool Tips, Predictions and Odds
FC Barcelona host Liverpool in European Champions League on Wednesday 1st May, 8:00pm at Camp Nou.
An absolute fortress
Barcelona simply do not lose at home in the Champions League. Many have tried and failed to conquer the Nou Camp since Bayern succeeded in May 2013, but a draw is the best anyone has managed.
Match result top tip: Barcelona or draw @ 1.25
Both can be deadly
Liverpool scored in every one of their away games in the knockout stages of last season's Champions League, and they've extended that run this time around. They're potent, while Messi & Co. very, very rarely fail to find the net on home soil.
Both teams to score top tip: Yes @ 1.62
The bookies are clearly expecting a tight, low-scoring game, but the stats suggest that we should expect goals. Thanks to generous odds, over 1.5 goals looks a very enticing bet.
Over/under top tip: Over 1.5 goals @ 1.22
Quick off the mark
Liverpool have conceded the first goal in 3 of their 5 Champions League away games this season, while Barcelona have opened the scoring in each of their last 10 at home. Expect a rapid start from the hosts.
Team to score first top tip: Barcelona @ 1.67
Simply the best
It goes without saying, but there are few players that carry a goal threat like Lionel Messi. His legendary status is already assured, but nobody would bet against him proving his greatness once again here.
Player to score first top tip: Lionel Messi @ 4.10
