Barcelona and Chelsea Live Match

If ever there was a match that looked destined to end up with over 2.5 goals being scored it is tonight’s Champions League match between Barcelona and Chelsea (live on ITV1 at 7.45pm).

Barca tends to deliver for those who love to back the “overs”, and a price of 1.8 on BetUK for over 2.5 goals here looks to be a good investment.

Not only are they oozing attacking talent from every position, the Spaniards also have sufficient defensive fragilities to make this a worthwhile punt.


While Guardiola’s charges average 2.9 goals per game in the Champions League, they also conceded 1.2 goals per game on average and both home matches against Lyon and Bayern covered not just the over 2.5 goals market but the over 3.5 one too.

Chelsea is not the defensive machine they were under Jose Mourinho and Avram Grant either. Their last two away matches, at Juventus and Liverpool, both saw 4 goals and then there’s the 4-4 draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge to consider as well.

All in all, this looks like it will be a goal fest and it could certainly pay to have a bet on that eventuality.
