Barcelona vs Antwerp – Prediction, and Match Preview

Barcelona vs Antwerp – Barcelona will hope to build on their 5-0 La Liga victory over Real Betis the previous time they faced off.

Barcelona had a 66% possession advantage and five of its 17 total attempts on goal were successful. Joo Félix (25′), Robert Lewandowski (32′), Ferrán Torres (62′), Raphinha (66′), and Joo Cancelo (81′) all scored goals for Barcelona. Real Betis’ 11 total shots on goal, none of which were on target, were from the other end.

Barcelona has scored nine goals thus far in their last six games, giving them an average of 1.5 goals per game under Xavi Hernández.

After defeating KVC Westerlo 0-3 in their previous game, Antwerp enters this match on a winning streak.

Antwerp controlled 59% of the possession in that game and three of its 15 total shots on goal were successful. Vincent Janssen (15′), Jelle Bataille (67′), and Arbnor Muja (83′) scored goals for Antwerp. Westerlo made nine attempts on goal, none of which were successful.

The Antwerp defense has put on a string of strong performances, with the result that they have only given up four goals overall in their last combined six games. Their own forwards have managed to score 15 goals over that time.

Barcelona vs Antwerp – Betting Analysis

There isn’t a significant availability issue, and Barcelona coach Xavi Hernández only has one player’s fitness to worry about out of a nearly full roster. Pedri is out due to a hamstring injury.

We anticipate that Barça may start this match in a 4-3-3 configuration, with M. ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Jules Kounde, Andreas Christensen, Lex Balde, Frenkie De Jong, Oriol Romeu, Ilkay Gündogan, Lamine Yamal, Robert Lewandowski, and Gavi receiving the ball first.

Mark van Bommel, the manager of Antwerp, does not have access to the entire roster. There won’t be any appearances from Ortwin De Wolf (Finger Injury), Davino Verhulst (Orbital Fracture), Sam Vines (Knock), Björn Engels (Achilles Tendon Issues), or Kobe Corbanie (Surgery).

With Jean Butez, Jelle Bataille, Zeno Van Den Bosch, Soumala Coulibaly, Ritchie De Laet, Mandela Keita, Jurgen Ekkelenkamp, Arthur Vermeeren, Arbnor Muja, Vincent Janssen, and M. Ange Balikwisha as their starting lineup, we believe The Great Old are likely to use a 4-3-3 formation.

Although Antwerp should be able to defeat this Barcelona team, we don’t know how many goals they’ll score.

What are the top odds for the game?

According to the most recent bookmaker odds in the win-draw-win market, Barcelona is the team with the best odds at 1.19, while betting on the draw is 8.1 and betting for Antwerp to win is 14.5. The best returns now attainable are those.
