Soccer Prediction of the Day Barcelona vs Tottenham
Prior to Barcelona’s 4-2 win in London in the first round of the 2018/2019 Champions League group stage, the teams had faced each other in two friendlies. Both were in the draw. The first, in 2009, by 1 to 1. The second, this year by 2 to 2.
Barcelona clearly has more technical resources than Tottenham and throughout the season these players have produced better results, although not always the football presented is able to delight. The English, however, in many moments had surprising displays, which makes room for a risky guess at this Tuesday’s meeting at Camp Nou with the prognosis in the success of visitors.
