In the Champions League, there is only one last round to be played. And one of the big twists and turns is that Barcelona themselves could leave the tournament! To avoid that, the Catalan club would like to beat Bayern Munich – no small task, albeit with the home side’s motivation at zero. Will Xavi be able to secure another win? An exclusive forecast for the most intriguing match on December 8, 2021 is available to the readers of the website.

Bayern have long since decided everything in this tournament
The Star of the South is by no means the benchmark of stability right now. Standing out, of course, was their shocking exit from the German Cup after a 0-5 defeat at home to Borussia Mönchengladbach. And in the Bundesliga, too, fortunate matches that end in resounding victories alternate with occasional misfires. But in the Champions League, the Germans are doing more than great: five wins in five games. Of course, everything has already been decided here, and the lack of motivation was seen already in Kyiv, when Dynamo almost got back from 0-2. On the other hand, now there will be the game in Munich, albeit without spectators. And a chance to show one hundred percent results, 6 out of 6 wins. Isn’t that a reason to rally for the meeting, especially since you can “bury” a potential rival in the fight for the Ears.
Barcelona should set themselves up for victory
“The Blues have improved markedly under Xavi. That said, they failed to beat Benfica at home in the Champions League last round – the game at the Camp Nou ended 0-0. That means that the Catalans did not qualify for the play-offs ahead of schedule. Moreover, the Portuguese have a head-to-head advantage. It is clear that the Eagles will need to win anyway, but they play at home against Dynamo, the division’s outsider. If Yaremchuk and company win, they will put their rivals from Spain to a difficult task. Then even a draw in Munich will not be enough for them: then Benfica, having won the parallel encounter, will equal the points, and will displace the Cules from 2nd place in terms of face-to-face encounters.
Bayern have won their last 3 games in a row. Especially memorable is their 8-2 quarter-final win in the Champions League. And in September, the visitors from Germany made it 3-0 at the Camp Nou.
Bayern are good, but Barcelona, who have incredible motivation, are very much underrated at the moment. The +1 goal offer on the visitors (odds – 1.78) is worth a closer look.
