Bayern Munich vs Barcelona
Bayern Munich will be ready for a tremendous clash at the Allianz Arena when they take on Barcelona in their Champions League. Their group is already touted as the ‘Group of Death’ owing to the stature of the teams. The Bavarian giants passed through the first hurdle against Inter Milan last week, but this one will be different.
Bayern Munich need to rediscover their usual fluidity if their league form is of any measure. The Bundesliga holders have drawn their last three domestic games, with the latest coming against Stuttgart despite leading twice in the clash. They will be put through their first real test of this campaign when they host Barcelona.
Barcelona can take confidence from their current form and go into this clash with their heads high. The acquisition of former Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has proven to be top business so far, and the Polish forward continued his scoring spree when the Catalans beat Cadiz by four goals.
Barcelona have won their last five games in all competitions and have been in relentless scoring form. The old memories of playing against Bayern, especially the 8-2 mauling, will be fresh, but Xavi Hernandez is a different manager with a much-changed side.
