Champions League Odds - Milan vs. Barcelona


AC Milan rose steadily from their dismal start at Serie A this season, although they succeeded in fending off bad form in qualifying for the Champions League knockout round. Now at fifth place in Serie A, they credit much of their success to Stephan El-Shaarawy’s impressive scoring run.

Although they will be without new signing Mario Balotelli and his masterful penalty kicks, Milan could still inflict scoring with El-Shaarawy, Robinho, Giampaolo Pazzini and Bojan Krkic as choices up front. Yet, they have to ramp up their defence against Barcelona’s lethal attacks.

Lionel Messi is once again the face of Barcelona this season, having achieved an informal personal record of most goals in a year with 91 in 2012. Yet, Barça does not solely rely on him, with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Pedro, Cristian Tello and David Villa scoring impressively.

Xavi and Andres Iniesta will continue to be influential in Barcelona‚Äôs midfield, both being pivotal to their side‚Äôs remarkable ‚Äútiki-taka‚ÄĚ passing style. Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique continue to be commanding figures in the backline., known for football betting in Malaysia and the rest of the world, picks Barcelona as favourites at 2.110. Barça have to win by at least two goals for their punters to win over AC Milan’s 1-1.5 (1.25) handicap (0-2 to 1.25-2 for Barcelona).
