Barcelona vs. Bayern - Matchup and Team LogosFC Barcelona are hosts to FC Bayern Munich on Wednesday, May 1st, 2013 in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final at Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona.

The team that qualifies will meet Borussia Dortmund in the final at Wembley stadium in London on Saturday, May 25th.

We watched Real Madrid come close to overturning a 4-1 deficit from the first leg against Borussia and now the question is if Barcelona do better against an even stronger German side. Winning after going down 4-0 in the first leg has never been done in the UEFA Champions League history so lets take a look at the odds set for the upcoming match between two giants of European football.

Barcelona 4/5
Draw 10/3
Bayern Munich 16/5

Despite getting trashed in the first match in Munich, Barcelona are favourites to win at home and a $100 bet on the Spanish side earns $80 in profit while the same bet on Bayern could earn $320 in profit.

To Qualify odds:

Barcelona 18/1
Bayern 1/33

The bookies are confidant that Bayern are going through and $100 bet on the German side earns $3 in profit while the same bet on Barcelona could earn $1,800 in profit if successful.

Over 2.5 (total goals scored) is set at 4/9 which means that a $100 bet could return $44 in profit while Under 2.5 is set at 17/10 which returns $170 on $100 wagered.

The most likely score according to the odds is 2-0 for Barcelona at 10/1 (bet $100 to profit $1,000) followed by 1-0 and 3-1 for Barcelona at 11/1 (bet $100 to profit $1,100).

The odds of Lionel Messi scoring are at 4/9 (bet $100 to profit $44) while Mario Mandzukic has the highest odds to score for the Munich side at 8/5 (bet $100 to profit $160).

This could be a very entertaining game. Barcelona might not have much of a chance to qualify, but we have seen what they can do when they are 'on'. If they are able to turn it 'on' on Wednesday, then ladies and gentleman we have a fight.
