During that time Barca have had the upper hand with three victories and two draws, although Milan's solitary victory came at San Siro in Feburary as the Rossoneri recorded a famous 2-0 win.
Though the result ultimately proved immaterial, Barca will be aware of the potential threat posed by the Italians who are offered at a healthy looking 5/1 (6.00) with Paddy Power. Barca for their part can be backed at 4/7 (1.57) with the draw available at 3/1 (4.00).
It is of course difficult to back against Barca irrespective of their form and despite not scoring against Osasuna they should find the back of the net against a Milan side that has struggled to keep clean sheets, enjoying just three in their previous nine matches.
Barcelona to lead at the hour mark is offered at 4/5 (1.80) and that looks a decent enough option for investment.
This bet has a paid out in two of the last three meetings between the sides and looks like a decent bet in a market lacking overall appeal.
