Lionel Messi to score first and five Barcelona Champions League final bets to follow

The Catalan giants are favourites to win a fourth European crown against Manchester United at Wembley this weekend, and we investigate the value markets on their chances in London

* Lionel Messi to score first @ 5.0 (myBet)

Irked at being beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo to the Pichichi, the Barca superstar can console himself with being the top Champions League scorer for the third year in a row. You won't have seen better odds on Messi to score in 90 minutes all season and after punishing Manchester United in 2009, who would best against him to do the same on Saturday night. Messi is 5.0 to score first, 2.20 during the 90 minutes and 26.0 to net a hat-trick with myBet.

* Barcelona to win in extra-time @ 10.0 (myBet)

Rewind to 1992 at the old Wembley between this year's finalists Barcelona and Sampdoria. After 90 scoreless minutes Ronald Koeman settled the contest in extra-time with a thundering free kick. Barca are 2.0 to win in normal time and 11.0 to settle the match on penalties. A price of 10.0 is a good value on a repeat of 19 years ago.

* Barcelona to win both halves @ 6.50

Perhaps you would rather remember 2009 instead of 1992 when Pep Guardiola's side dispatched the Red Devils by winning both halves. Going into the match it was United who were narrower favourites, which certainly isn't the case this time round. Winning both halves is well within this team's capability.

* Pedro to score anytime @ 3.25 (myBet)

Backing Pedro to score has paid off on multiple occasions for punters in recent years. Only Lionel Messi (11) has grabbed more goals for Barcelona this season in Europe, with Pedro well behind him on four. He has a habit of scoring goals on important occasions as Real Madrid will testify. Saturday night is another opportunity and 3.25 is a price well worth snapping up.

* Barcelona to lift the Champions League @ 1.50 (myBet)

You may not fancy any of the match markets and consider them too risky to invest your cash. Having been favourites all season Barca are now 1/2 (1.50) to lift the Champions League trophy. With a 50 per cent potential profit you could well be celebrating with Messi, Guardiola and Co. on Saturday night.
