Preview:
Bayer Leverkusen and Barcelona face at BayArena, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Group Stage). The recent head‑to‑head record favours the away team, since they have a record of 3 wins in the last 3 matches. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Bayer Leverkusen

After 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses, the home team is currently in the 3rd position, with 5 points won. In the last match, they have tied (1‑1) in an away match against BATE, after in the previous round they have lost (3‑2) in an away match against Roma. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away loss against Hertha BSC by (2‑1). Bayer Leverkusen has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 6 of the last 7 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 6 of the last 7 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 8 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 11 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

Bayer Leverkusen came in the Group E as one of the strong candidates to move forward, and the fighting for the second place is on fire. The team need to win against Barcelona and wait that Roma fail to beat BATE Borisov. The 3rd place continues in risk, once that the BATE's victory and the Barcelona's victory would leave Leverkusen away from the european competitions, in the last place of the group. 
So, the german team will need to come very focused to the match, and the coach Roger Schmidt will have to choose very well the players that will substitute the absents Lars Bender and Tin Jedvaj. 

Confirmed Lineup: B. Leno, J. Tah, R. Hilbert, Ö. Toprak, Wendell, K. Kampl, K. Bellarabi, C. Kramer, J. Hernández, A. Mehmedi, H. Çalhanoğlu.
Coach: R. Schmidt.

Analysis of Barcelona

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 13 points won, after 4 wins and 1 draw. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match agaisnt BATE by (3‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Roma by (6‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 12 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 48 goals scored and 16 conceded. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got an away tie against Valencia by (1‑1). In the last 10 away matches Barcelona has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 wins in the last matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 5 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times but have turned the score around in 3.

The current trophy holder, Barcelona, are doing one more solid season, and have already conquered the victory in the Group E. In this last match, the team will only meet the schedule. After an important match of the Spanish Championship, it's probable that the coach Luis Enrique will spare some players, though this isn't already confirmed. 
Daniel Alves, suspended, is a certain absence. Douglas, Rafinha, Mathieu and Sergi Roberto are still in doubt by physical problems. 

Confirmed Lineup: M. ter Stegen, Bartra, Adriano Correia, T. Vermaelen, Jordi Alba, I. Rakitić, Sergi Samper, W. Kaptoum, Sandro Ramírez, L. Messi, Munir.
Coach: Luis Enrique.

Betting suggestion:

Apart from the match context, Barcelona are really superior than the german team, even sparing some players they can continue being that. 
So, it's foreseen that Barcelona can have a serious word to say in this match, which may contradict the current odds. Therefore, we will bet on asian handicap 0.0 in favour of Barcelona.
