Barcelona will hope for another perfect performance in the Champions League semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena

Bayern Munich are 20/1 with Bet365 to qualify for the final, and have a 3-0 deficit against Barcelona from the first leg.

However, they are at home. The Allianz Arena, where, only two years ago, they dismantled Barca 4-0, in a 7-0 aggregate scoreline.

This time, Barca lead 3-0 from the first leg at the Nou Camp, and they have the attacking tri-telepathy of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

It was the former who bagged a brace in Spain, and the Argentine superstar is 6/1 with BoyleSports to net two or more this time round.

Meanwhile, Suarez has two doubles to his name in the Champions League knockout rounds this season and the Uruguayan is 7/1 with SkyBet to score a brace or more in Germany.

Neymar, meanwhile, was a constant threat in the first leg, and his persistence in front of goal, eventually paid off, when adding a third to Messi’s opening two. He is a decent 15/8 price with Ladbrokes to strike anytime.

Meanwhile, although Barca did well to stifle Bayern in the first leg, with the aid of the magnificent Marc-Andre ter Stegen in goal, their hosts still carry a threat.

Polish hitman Robert Lewandowski bagged a brace at home in the last round against Porto, as Bayern overcame a 3-1 deficit against the Dragons, to win 6-1 and 7-4 on aggregate.

Lewandowski is 7/4 with 888.com to find the goal anytime and 8/1 with SkyBet to score two or more. Fellow striker Thomas Muller, who bagged a brace two years ago against Barca at the Allianz, and who netted at home against Porto in the last round, is 9/1 with Ladbrokes to equal or better that.

Former Barca man Thiago Alcantara has a couple of reasons to ensure his team can overturn their deficit. Having won the Champions League at the Catalan club, his younger brother Rafinha also plays for them. He is 11/4 with Coral to score anytime.
