It was a fine 2016/217 for the Old Lady as they won the Italian Serie A for the 33rd time and sixth in a row. They also added the Coppa Italia but their only blemish was losing 4-1 to Real Madrid in the Uefa Champions League final. They are (3.00) to win with LionsBet.
It’s a new era for the Blaugrana with Ernesto Valverde in charge. Barça lost the La Liga title to Los Blancos and the Champions League in the quarters to Juve. There’s thus much work ahead for the former Athletic Bilbao boss but his new side remain favourites at (2.15) to win in this encounter.
A draw in this game after 90 minutes is priced at (3.40) with the same firm.
A game of this magnitude shouldn’t be devoid of goals when one considers that the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar, Gonzalo Higuain and Paolo Dybala would take to the field at the MetLife stadium.
What’s more is that Barcelona scored 14 goals in the three games they played at this tournament last year.
Punters can thus expect to see lots of goals and backing more than three goals at odds of (1.65) would be rewarding.
Both teams to score at a price of (1.60) should also reap some dividends.
The team to score first always sets the direction in which the game would go. Backing the Bianconeri to open proceedings is offered at (2.10) while it’s (1.75) for the Catalan giants to do so with LionsBet.
