Barcelona go into tonight’s final Champions League semi-final tie as 4/5 favourites to claw back some of their 4-0 deficit with a second-leg win over Bayern Munich.
The German champions are 12/5 shots to convert their superiority from the first meeting into a win at the Nou Camp, while odds of 7/2 are available for a draw.
While you contemplate the chances of Barca pulling off an astonishing comeback to qualify for the final at odds of 10/1, here are some alternative statistics to digest before deciding where your money will be going on this evening’s clash.
4: Of the five away goals that Bayern Munich have conceded in this season’s Champions League, four have come in the second half. Barcelona are 13/10 to score more goals in the second half than the first period tonight.
7: Barcelona fired seven goals the last time they hosted a German team in the Champions League (a 7-1 triumph over Bayer Leverkusen last year). With the Catalans expected to throw caution to the wind, you can get odds of 19/4 on there being six goals or more at either end tonight.
12: The combined number of goals that Barcelona and Bayern have netted from the 76th minute to full-time in this season’s Champions League. Odds of 3/4 are available on a goal arriving in the last quarter of an hour at the Nou Camp.
15: The number of occasions this season that Barcelona have won a match at home that has seen four or more combined goals (in all competitions). That outcome is priced at 5/2 tonight.
17: Bayern’s 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in their last-16 second leg at the Allianz Arena was the only one of the Bavarians’ last 17 Champions League matches in which they have failed to score. They are 1/4 to find the net at least once in Barcelona.
