Jake’s Betting Tips

There have been at least three goals in four of the last five meetings between these sides, not to mention both teams are coming off high-scoring wins in the previous round. You can get Over 2.5 Goals at 4/7* with Mark Jarvis.

The Polish forward Robert Lewandowski surely would have been in the conversation for Balon d’Or winner had the event not been cancelled this year. He continues to put up ridiculous goal numbers once again and you can get him to score anytime at 8/11* with Mark Jarvis.

This Barca side will be no pushover, but it makes sense to back Bayern to win because that’s what they’ve been doing under Hans-Dieter Flick. They just don’t look like losing at the moment and you can get Bayern to win in 90 minutes at Evs* with Mark Jarvis.
