Why Bet On Barcelona?
Why should you consider betting on Barclona (9-4-2) in this match? Well, first and foremoest, Barcelona is riding the waver of a four-game winning streak that includes their completely dominating 4-0 shutout win over Espanyol on Saturday to remain in first place in the Spanish Primera Division. Superstar Lionel Messi put on a show with two goals and fellow superstar Luis Suarez added the third just before halftime. Messi, who earlier in the week was ranked the world’s fifth-best player in the Baloon d’or rankings, clearly wanted to show everyone he still arguably the best player on the planet.
“We know what Leo is like, he doesn’t need to demonstrate anything to us, we don’t agree with the Ballon d’Or rankings,” Barca midfielder Ivan Rakitic said.

Why Bet on Tottenham?
Tottenham (120-4) has won two in a row including their 2-0 EPL shutout win over Leicester City on Saturday. The win helped the Hotspurs move back into third place in the tight Premier League standings. Tottenham’s fifth victory in six league games, and eighth on the road, moved them to within six points of leaders Liverpool. Son Heung-min found the back on the net just before the half and Dele Alli cemented the win with another goal in the 58th minute.
“We’re definitely going there with confidence,” Alli said. “We know it’s going to be a difficult game — but they’re human, and everyone makes mistakes.

Barcelona vs Tottenham Champions League Prediction
Barcelona has scored four goals in each of its last two matches and they’ve got just a bit toomuch pffemsive firepower – not to mention, flat-out, star power – for Tottenham to deal with in this affair. Barcelona is 4-1-0 in five Champions league matches and Tottenham is 2-1-2. Barcelona has put 14 goals on the board and allowed just four while Tottenham has scored a modest eight goals while giving up none. As a matter of fact, Lionel Messi has six goals in three Champions league matches, so i’d say there’s a great chance he finds the back of the net again in this one.
Barcelona beat Tottenham 2-0 the last time these two teams met at Wembley Stadium earlier in the campaign and I’m expecting another win for messi and company even if Tottenham doesn’t roll over quite as easy this time around.
