Sports Betting Picks – Barcelona V Stuttgart
Posted on March 17, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
|Another interesting match for the Champions League will be played tonight at 19:45 GMT where Barcelona will host the match against Stuttgart. This is the second leg game for the first Knock-out stage of Champions League and Barcelona has the advantage as they secured an away draw with 1-1. Barcelona might not be in the best form lately but the Spanish team is the clear favorite for this encounter. Pepe Guardiola is not facing any major injury problems but as Abidal and Keita have just returned to training, it is unlikely that they will be featured in today’s game. Additionally last minute information claimed that Xavi is unavailable for this match due to a training injury that occurred yesterday but this is unconfirmed.|
On the other hand, Stuttgart’s manager Christian Gross is not experiencing any major injury problems while Delpierre, Celozzi and Hleb are all fit and most likely will be in the starting eleven. Barcelona didn’t play well in the first leg match but will now be playing in the presence of their supporters which will add up to their ability to prevail. They are unbeatable in the last five matches they played where they have managed to secure three wins (all at home) while they secured 2 away draws. The first leg result will force the Germans to attack at some point leaving fewer players to their defense allowing space to the lethal scorers such as Messi (at excellent form lately), Henry and Ibrahimovic.
Stuttgart is expecting a lot from players such as Hleb, Kuzmanovic, Cacau and Pogrebnyak. The truth is that if the Germans where a little more effective in the first leg match, they would have won. However, the fact is that, if they want to progress to the quarter finals they need to attack at some point. They currently enjoy a good set of results with two wins, two draws and just 1 defeat in the last five matches they played.
The online sports books have Barcelona as clear favorites where the home win is offered down to 1.25. The draw is at 5.75 while Stuttgart’s away win is high up to 11.50. We are not expecting any surprise tonight (yesterday Inter and CSKA secured away wins against all the odds) but the home win offer is too low. The next best offer is the Over 2.5 goals bet (around 1.50) while the HalfTime / FullTime bet of Barcelona / Barcelona (1.57) and X / Barcelona (4.50) are also some possible betting picks. Our prediction is that the game will have many goals as Barcelona loves to score a lot a home. The Over 2.5 goals is our first choice while if we would like to risk further for better odds then we can choose the X / Barcelona HalfTime / FullTime bet as the 4.50 offer is very tempting.
