Football supporters watching Wednesday’s match at the Nou Camp might have their proverbial abacuses out when watching this game, with Barcelona not shy of scoring goals when it comes to playing at home.
It is a regular sight to see Pep Guardiola’s team two or three goals ahead of their opponents by half-time and the bookies certainly aren’t taking any risks when it comes to pricing up Barca for this particular contest.
Ladbrokes (£50 free bets) offer a best price 1/20 about a home win, with Barcelona looking to rack up the goals against a side that did well to hold Milan to a 2-0 defeat in their last match while Barcelona were putting five past BATE.
The Czech champions will be up against a team that stormed to victory in this competition last term and has scored 21 goals without reply in their four La Liga home matches to date. Guardiola might be tempted to give Lionel Messi the night off for this fixture, although the forward likes to play every game and can be backed at 158 (bet365 – £200 free betting) to score the first goal.
David Villa, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro and Iniesta will also be looking to get on the scoresheet and punters will be having a bash at some tasty odds on the correct score market, with a 5-0 win on offer at 8/1 and a 6-0 victory available at 12/1.
It is looking increasingly likely that the outcome of this group will come down to the match at the San Siro where Milan will look to get one over Barcelona just as Internazionale did at the same ground two seasons ago.
