Barcelona vs Antwerp Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Barcelona vs Antwerp will be an interesting match although it should be fairly pre-decided. Here are our predictions.
Team Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Barcelona will have an unbelievable advantage over their opponents here and we expect a strong performance from the team. They have been unbelievable since the start of the season and are now on a 4-win streak. Antwerp are making a debut in the elite club tournament and while they are a very strong team for their level, they are not even close to the level of the CL.
Team To Score In Both Halves: Barcelona
Barcelona will probably start this game strong and take full control from the first minute. We do not think that Antwerp will have a lot of chances to score in this game but Barcelone should be able to net at least one goal per half. The odds for the goal markets are quite low in this match, as expected, and this is one of the few alternatives that are worth a shot.
Correct Score Prediction: 3-0 to Barcelona
This should be a walk in the park for Barcelona on a normal day and we think that the 3-0 scoreline is a good pick. Antwerp may have a better chance against other teams in the group but not this game. When we compare the Barcelona vs Antwerp line ups, there is a massive difference in class between the two teams here. Barcelona are in perfect form and will not allow mistakes.
Barcelona vs Antwerp Team Previews
Barcelona have been rebuilding for years and they finally look like a proper team that can contest the CL. They started the season with four massive wins in five games and their attack is absolutely unbelievable right now. They will face a team that is making a debut in the Champions League in Antwerp and this should be the easiest match they will get in the group stage.
Antwerp made history by qualifying in the Champions League and it came after winning the title in the very last round in the very last minutes of the match. They are in good shape right now, for their own level, and may surprise some of the smaller teams in the group. Barcelona, however, should be too strong for them and we do not expect anything from Antwerp in this opening match.
