The probably biggest and most exciting game of the season and rightly so quarter-finals of European Glory and both of the teams really want to win it Bayern in the hunt for treble while on the other hand, Barca looks to save their season with at least winning one trophy and this is going to be one amazing match even though many pundits are predicting Bayern to win this comfortably but I don't think so when your team has arguably the best player in the world anything can happen first let's talk about both the teams individually.
Barca has been struggling and stumbling since the restart they gave away lead of 2 points and lost the title to their rivals Real Madrid, however with Napoli they won 3-1 in Champions league. Since the departure of Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta, Barcelona has struggled to find creativity in the middle of the pitch, they had bought Phillipe Coutinho but couldn't make much of him. The Catalan giants shall be however getting back Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal back on the team this match after being absent against Napoli. Barcelona is looking for an offensive approach in this match with a 4-3-3 formation.
Ousmane Dembele is back and if he could contribute and with Suarez and Messi firing ahead Barca can snatch a victory but there are several questions whether if Griezmann should start based on his performance in last few matches, I think Yes he should considering his experience and looking at what he can do.
On the other hand, Bayern has been unbeaten in Champions league, clinched the Bundesliga and league cup and they have been unstoppable since the return and look to clinch the treble. Bayern looks a complete team this season with a solid defense quick midfield and great finishers. Muller finding his rhythm back and Lewandowski having the best year of career Bayern are dangerous and the obvious favorites to clinch the champions league this season.
My predictions are Barca:2 Bayern:1 with a Messi masterclass.
