Barcelona vs. BATE Soccer Betting Lines PreviewBarcelona have overcome their injury woes at the beginning of the season and are now competing for everything in their sights. In La Liga, they are second in the league behind bitter rivals Real Madrid, tied on points and separated only by goal difference. Barca won their last game this weekend, thanks to goals from Suarez and Neymar, who have kept things going in the absence of their talisman Lionel Messi. In the Champions League, the Catalans have won two and drawn one, placing them on top of Group E with seven points. A win this Wednesday will see then qualify for the next round with two games to spare. Offensively they have scored five goals in the competition, so getting goals against a BATE defense that has conceded eight goals in the Champions League should not be that big a problem. Conversely, BATE lie third in the group and have their work cut out for them against a solid Barca unit. They have won one game and lost two. However, a win at the Nou Camp, unlikely as it seems, could take them to second place in Group E. The last time out, BATE enjoyed a morale-boosting narrow win away from home in the league. Still, given that they have scored just four goals in the competition and are facing a Barcelona side that has conceded just two goals, BATE will need to take a giant leap if they are to win Wednesday’s game.
Who are the team’s main injury concerns?
- Barcelona: Lionel Messi, Douglas
- BATE: Vitali Rodionov
