Bayern vs Barcelona: What happened in their last Champions League meetings?
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski returns to face Barcelona as Barcelona travel to Bavaria in the Champions League.
FC Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez laughed off the idea that playing Bayern Munich was like visiting a ‘house of horrors’ ahead of Tuesday’s mouth-watering Champions League Group C clash.
They met in last season’s group stage, with the Germans winning twice 3-0, although Barca is a very different side now and is led by striker Robert Lewandowski, who moved from Bayern. In the offseason, he moved to the Nou Camp from Bayern Munich. were gone
Barcelona has never won against Bayern, who have won the last four meetings between the clubs by a combined score of 17-4, including an 8-2 defeat in the 2020 quarter-finals. While Xavi admitted the task ahead of Barca is tough, he said his side should have no fear heading into Munich. “I wouldn’t call it a house of horrors-it’s just Bayern’s ground,” Xavi said. We’ve seen both sides of the coin. We’ve beaten them a lot and we’ve had heavy defeats against them, but we’ve never won at Allianz, and that shows how hard it is to go there and the job at hand, but we’re optimistic. We can’t be overconfident just because we’ve had good results recently. We need to remember what it was like to play against them last year, but I will be happy if we play to our potential, and if we do that, I think we can change history by winning.
The Spaniard has a fully fit squad for the game against Julian Nagelsmann’s side and is expected to recall Jules Conde, Eric Garcia, Padre, Ousmane Dembele, and Lewandowski, who were all thrashed 4-0 in Cadiz on Saturday. In the triumph, he came off the bench.
Bayern-Barça: Last five UCL meetings
December 3, 2021: Bayern 3-0 Barcelona, Matchday 6 Group E
The last meeting between the European giants took place in an empty Allianz Arena (as a COVID-19 precaution) last December, where the German side condemned the Catalans to third place in the Europa League and group. Goals from Sane, Müller, and Musyala were enough to secure three points and a 100% group stage record for the Bundesliga giants.
Barcelona 0-3 Bayern, Matchday 1 Group E
The gulf in class between Barcelona and Bayern was clear from last season, with the Germans outscoring the Catalans by three goals and showing the gap between the two teams without the Bavarians replying. Robert Lewandowski was on target twice, with Thomas Muller opening the scoring just after the half-hour mark.

Possibly the club’s lowest point of the decade, as they were humiliated by the Catalans in an empty Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, the pandemic forced UEFA to stage the last game of the competition in a “bubble” in the Portuguese capital. forced to play.
The German side was five goals ahead at the break and the impact and impact of the result saw immediate changes at the Catalan club with sporting director and head coach Eric Abidal and Quique Setien following Barcelona’s heaviest defeat in 69 years.

The second leg of the 2015 semi-final was as good as it gets and came after Neymar grabbed a first-half brace to give La Liga a crucial aggregate lead, despite goals from Lewandowski and Muller twice.

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona result: Bayern’s second-half substitutions haunt Barca once again to haunt old Champions League ghosts.
After the first 45 minutes, it was surprising how Barcelona wasn’t in front, with Robert Lewandowski and company feasting on Bayern’s backline on their return to the Allianz Arena.
The Blaugrana had beaten the hosts, with Bayern once again looking off the pace after three successive Bundesliga draws. The only thing missing for Barcelona was the end product, and it felt like things would finally fall in their way.
Then half-time came and went, and a different Bayern team emerged from the tunnel, unrecognizable from the one that left the Allianz Arena at the break. Goals from Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane four minutes apart put the hosts ahead before the hour mark, and Barcelona was once again overwhelmed by the German opposition, who is fast becoming public enemy No.1 in Catalonia.
Barcelona fell to Bayern Munich again, a familiar outcome in European play, as the Germans once again defeated their Spanish rivals.

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona post-match analysis
Barcelona once again failed to shake off the moisture of the Champions League.
Barcelona came into this match in much better form than Bayern, and it felt like Xavi’s men were favorites even in the form of a team they have been given to fit over the years. The first half saw Barcelona in complete control, and it looked like the Blaugrana were going to run away with the match if they could only muster one last ball to beat Manuel Neuer.
It never happened. Instead, their old boogie team resurfaced.
For the fifth time in a row and the ninth time in 14 all-time meetings, Bayern emerged victorious. It’s becoming more than just a rare phenomenon, as it feels like Bayern is teasing a Barcelona voodoo doll in the dressing room.
Nagelsmann may have found something in the Hernandez-Apamacano duo.
Bayern Munich spent a fortune on Dutch center-back Matthijs de Light this summer, but his early struggles with Frenchman Davit Appamecano have seen Bayern concede goals at dreadful moments in the first few weeks of the season.
Instead, the Bayern boss turned to Lucas Hernandez for this big Champions League tilt, leaving De Light on the bench. The result made Nagelsmann look like a genius, as Hernandez was easily man of the match for the Bavarians. After Bayern was safe at half-time, Hernandez produced a world-class second half, completely hiding Robert Lewandowski and picking up an own goal at the other end.
Unfortunately, Hernandez was forced off injured in the final seconds of the match with a nagging groin problem, which could have forced De Litte back on duty, but when the French defender returned, Nagels Main should have seen it straight back to the side.
Bayern Munich vs. Barcelona Live Updates, Highlights
Full time: Bayern Munich 2-0 Barcelona
On the back of an emphatic second half, Bayern Munich took control of Group C, with a brilliant final 45 minutes full of excitement.
Barcelona was well down after the break, with Manuel Neuer failing time and time again after a flurry of missed chances in the opening half. The Blaugrana still can’t shake the ghosts of their old Champions League.
Lewandowski looks in after a bouncing ball falls to his feet in the penalty area, but Josh Kimmich reaches out of nowhere to clear the ball.
Lucas Hernandez is down with what almost looks like a penalty flag, arriving to tackle Frank Casey. Barcelona wants him to get up early so as not to waste time, and the Frenchman reacts angrily, saying he is hurt. The replay shows as much, coming up shortly after the stretch, a tough loss for Bayern after a big display in today’s match.
86th minute: Barcelona are throwing everything they have at Bayern Munich, and it’s not paying off. Ansur Fati is almost in but his touch fails him, and Ferran Torres slips one wide. This second half showed a different Bayern team to the one we’ve seen in the last few weeks: full of adrenaline and ready to slay a giant.
Leroy Sane is withdrawn and replaced by Ryan Gravenbruch. Sane had a great match, but he is worried about the touchline and is going right down the tunnel. Could it just be frustration at being suppressed, or is he injured? Barcelona contested Frank Casey and Ansu Fati until the last 10 minutes.
In the 77th minute, Lewandowski receives service on the penalty spot, turns towards goal, and works one-on-one with Lucas Hernandez, who is dispossessed by the French international. As the opportunity clears, Hernandez has a big fist pump as he closes his mark.
But Hernánez shouldn’t get ahead of himself just yet, though, as he concedes a hard foul on Lewandowski outside the top of the penalty area, and it’s a big set-piece chance for Barcelona. Lewandowski took it, and it went straight in. Wall.
73rd minute: Josh Kimmich receives a yellow card for what is essentially a foul on De Jong, as he grabs the Dutchman’s shorts as he breaks free on the ball. The third yellow card of the match, and Bayern’s second,
Barcelona is pushing the numbers and trying to get back into the game. Ferran Torres is almost through, and he goes down in the penalty area under a Goretzka challenge, but it’s not enough for a penalty.
Both sides make changes, as Bayern brings on Serge Gnabry (and his big club hand, wrapped up after injury) for Leroy Sane, while Andreas Christensen comes on to make way for Erik Garcia. came.
After the restart, chemistry problems continued for Barcelona as De Jong went for the ball and Lewandowski missed making a run, instead trying to get to the other side of his defender. These issues continued to plague Barcelona in the second half.
63rd minute: Chance, Barcelona! How did Padre miss that?!?!?!? He’s the only level with Neuer on goal thanks to Lewandowski’s great thread, and he curls his effort wide of the left post for a goal kick. But when Neuer came off his line to challenge, the Bayern keeper didn’t get a touch, the shot just went wide.
Bayern is suddenly the better side, winning every 50/50 ball in midfield and catching Barcelona players tumbling. Xavi wants to make a change to stop the bleeding and has Frenkie de Jong and Ferran Torres in place of Gavi and Rafinha.
What difference does a half make? Gavi and Raphinha were arguably Barcelona’s two best players, and they put their side 2-0 up in 60 minutes.
54th minute: Goal! Byron! Byron has been buzzing since taking the lead, and it’s a quick double! It’s young Musiala to start the move, and Leroy Sane charges through the heart of Barcelona’s defense. He goes right by Jules Conde, who can’t hold on, and Ter Stegen has no chance. What a revival by Bayern!
It’s a tragedy for Barcelona, who were by far the better team in the first half but failed to take advantage, and now find themselves two goals down and second in the match.
51st minute: goal! Byron! In the ensuing corner, it’s the first goal of the game! Lucas Hernandez is open, let loose by Marcos Alonso, who is lost between the trees. Too easy for Bayern after halftime!
50th minute: Chance, Bayern! Müller set up new man Goretzka, who won from a central area, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s first-time save was superb.
The first Barcelona player to be booked is Sergio Busquets, and then it’s a bit soft as he takes down Musiala. He offers a hand to help Musyala, and without making eye contact with the young German, it is taken away. Spicy!
45th min: Back for the second half. One change, as Bayern manager Nagelsmann switched midfielders, brought on Leon Goretzka for Marcel Submitter.
Half time: Bayern Munich 0-0 Barcelona
It’s surprising how the game went goalless after a highly entertaining first 45 minutes. Barcelona, in particular, should be upfront as Robert Lewandowski missed many chances you’d expect him to score, while Manuel Neuer was key in keeping the visitors out.
As the half wound down, Bayern settled into the match but failed to create any truly high-quality chances at the net, Sabitzer dragging his only good effort wide of the net.
Alphonso Davies is lucky to get away with a nine-call on the edge of the penalty area just before the half-time whistle.
Gavi was a standout performer for Barcelona, creating four chances, three more than anyone else on the pitch in the opening half.
43rd minute: Chance, Barcelona! Let Lewandowski have another go! Great work by Raphinha to tease the star striker, but he blasted it with a touch instead of hitting it the first time, which everyone in the stadium expected. That one touch allowed Mizrawi to recover and make a great tackle denying the final shot.
At some point, Lewandowski has to take one of his big chances away, or Barcelona will regret his shortcomings, which are piling up.
As a result, Raphinha goes down under a heavy challenge from Davies on the very edge of the penalty area, but it goes away. Replays show that Davies may have been very lucky to get away with it, as his step from behind didn’t touch the ball but certainly stopped the opponent.
40th minute: Bayern miss a chance as two attackers collide in the penalty area. It’s Sadio Mane and Thomas Müller who both look to latch on to Musiala’s cross, and they collide, the ball clearing harmlessly away.
33rd minute: Bayern fans unveil a typhoon at the supporter’s end aimed at canceling Premier League matches after Queen Elizabeth’s death.
31 min: Chance, Bayern! It’s the first big chance for the hosts, as Leroy Sane cuts inside and feeds Marcel Sabitzer, but Austria shoots themselves over. Another big drop in this game!
Barcelona was screaming for a foul in the build-up, with Bisquets slumped to the ground in midfield.
28th minute: Chance, Barcelona! The visitors have another big chance, but again nothing comes of it. Lewandowski tees one up for Rafinha at the top of the 18-yard box, but the Brazilian rifles his low effort shy of the right post.
Barcelona was the better team in the opening half hour, but will they regret those memories?
21 minutes: Chance, Barcelona! Another great save by Neuer! Ousmane Dembele on the left feeds a brilliantly assessed ball to Lewandowski who comes close again, setting himself up with a touch to shoot at his second, but his old team-mate is again denied!
Nossir Mazrawi replaces Pavard, who probably shouldn’t have been allowed to stay in the first place after suffering a head injury.
19th minute: Marcel Sabitzer picks up a yellow for a challenge on Sergio Busquets. That’s a bit harsh, as Sabitzer was the first to land in what looked to be a genuine 50/50 challenge, but Bisquets came out worse with a cleat to the ribs.
As a result, Pavard comes off the field, clearly struggling from his initial clash with Alonso.
18th minute: Chance, Barcelona! A miss from Lewandowski! The former Bayern man roasts the home defense with the superb skill to earn a free, but he fires a ninja kick shot over the bar. This is the most difficult effort, but one that Lewandowski has converted before.
15th minute: Oh my, Manuel Neuer makes a terrible and rare mistake on the ball, scraping the pass past Lewandowski, but Davit Apamecano makes a brilliant recovery to block his entry feed. You don’t see that often from a Bayern legend!
Remember this from the pre-match? Old habits die hard!
13th minute: This has been a great match so far between two title-caliber teams. The level of play is of the highest quality, with brilliant passes, brilliant tackles, and top saves already in the early stages of the match. Apply button!
A great matchup that turns out to be a match-long battle is Alfonso Davies vs. Rafinha.
9th minute: Chance, Barcelona! What to save Manuel Neuer! As we say Barcelona was wilting under the early Bayern press, some pressure of their own resulted in a break. Lewandowski dribbles down the right to start a great passing move, eventually falling to Padre who has a wide look at the net. The young midfielder ripped a left-footed shot, but the Bayern veteran made a fine save, throwing his leg out against his body momentum to keep the shot out. Cook save… and a beauty.
8th minute: Bayern’s press has been excellent, turning Barcelona into dangerous areas and with numbers on the counter several times. The final third product isn’t there yet, but it looks like it’s coming.
5th min: Benjamin Pavard takes a while to get up after a hard crash with Marcos Alonso. Bayern’s Pavard headed a ball over Bayern’s counter, and his pace sent him into the new Barcelona full-back. There was no malicious intent at all, but it seemed like a dirty one. The French international is finally up and ready to continue.
An early mistake from Barcelona gifted Sadio Mane the ball at the top of the penalty area, but the Spanish sidetracked well to catch Bayern’s new player, and his feed chance for Musala was far from the finish line. Nagelsmann said before the match that he wanted to see Mane be more selfish in front of goal.
First minute: Barcelona’s match continues at the Allianz Arena! Sergio Busquets and Manuel Neuer, the leaders, are as battle-tested as they come. Who will lead their team to a crucial Champions League victory?
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona (starts at 9:00 pm local CEST)
20 minutes into the kick-off: Robert Lewandowski has seen plenty of action as a competitor at the Allianz Arena, playing for Borussia Dortmund before switching sides in Der Klassik, but did not score against Bayern in the Champions League. What, coming up empty-handed on his first and only try-the 2013 Champions League Final?
No one has scored more goals in Barcelona’s first six La Liga games since 1956. An incredible start to the season.
30 minutes to kick-off: Barcelona enters the field for warm-ups to the cheers of the German home faithful, even as the Polish international applauds the Bayern fans, which quickly changed the reception.
It was remarkable to see the kind of reception former Bayern striker Lewandowski received throughout the match today. He won trophies at the Bavarian club but unceremoniously forced his way out.
Much is being made of Barcelona’s starting line-up against Bayern tonight. 36 minutes to kick-off: Both Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen stand at 6’2″ and have an established aerial presence.
It will be interesting to see him match up against Bayern starter Davit Apamecano, who has struggled in the air this season.
How about the sparkler over Josh Kimmich’s right eye? He got into a friendly fire encounter with Marcel Sabitzer a few days ago. The German international looks are good.
75 minutes to kick-off: Bayern’s line-up is also gone early, and Davit Apamecano starts at center-back with Matthijs de Light on the bench, alongside Lucas Hernandez. Marcel Sabitzer returns to midfield after being rested at the weekend, while bright young talent Jamal Musyala is deployed in attack.
Apamacano sitting instead of De Light is an interesting call by Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann. Upamecano has won just 31 percent of his aerial duels in Bundesliga play this year, and Lewandowski is an aerial threat in front of goal.
86 minutes to kick-off: Barcelona released their line-up remarkably early. For the visitors, Andreas Christensen and Jules Conde have been handed defensive duties, while Marcos Alonso made his first Barcelona start in a huge position. Hector Bellerin started on the right of Ronald Araujo.
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salehmidzic tells fans to avoid calling out Lewandowski, as he has “won everything with us”, but it will be interesting to see if any of the Bavarian faithful feel loyal to a player who left his path. club.
Either way, the 34-year-old is now a Barcelona player, and he’s off to a flying start, scoring a hat-trick on his Champions League debut for the club last week against Viktoria Plzen.
Bayern Munich vs. Barcelona Lineup, Team News:
Sadio Mane was rested against Stuttgart, appearing for a nine-minute cameo after a disappointing stalemate.
The defensive duo of Matthijs de Ligt and Dayot Upamecano have struggled at times to start the year, and it is Lucas Hernandez who replaces de Light for this match. Benjamin Pavard and Marcel Sabitzer are also back in the line-up, while youngster Jamal Musyala is part of the attack in place of Serge Gnabry.
Bayern Munich starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Neuer (GK) — Davies, Hernandez, Apamecano, Pavard, Sabitzer, Kimmich, Musiala, Muller, Sane, Mane.
Bayern Munich subs (9): Ulrich (GK), De Ligt, Mizrawi, Stanic, Goretzka, Gravenbruch, Gunbery, Teal, Chopo Motting.
Xavi has so many options on this incredibly deep roster that it’s probably hard to pick every single match, but it looks to be on par with the previous Champions League win against Viktoria Plzen.
A new defensive signing Marcos Alonso made his debut against Cadiz at the weekend and now makes his first Barcelona start, while fellow new man Hector Bellerin moves to the bench after starting at the weekend. In the rest of the defense, it’s Jules Conde on the right and a center-back pairing of Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen, with Gerard Pique, Erik Garcia, and Jordi Alba available as substitutes.
Barcelona starting line-up (4-3-3): Ter Stadion (GK) — Alonso, Araujo, Christensen, Conde, Padre, Busquets, Gavi, Dembele, Lewandowski, Rafinha.
Barcelona players (12): Tenis (GK), Pena (GK), Pique, Alba, Garcia, Balde, Bellerin, De Jong, Casey, Fati, F. Torres, Depay.

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona Betting Odds, Picks, and Predictions
Odds by Caesars (USA), Sports Interaction (Canada), and SkyBet (UK)
Based on form alone, these lines make absolutely no sense. Since opening the season with a scoreless draw in La Liga, Barcelona has put everyone in their way, while Bayern Munich has struggled in the Bundesliga.
And while Bayern’s attack is one of the best in the world, it can’t make up for deficiencies at the back, where Bayern has struggled defensively.
Backing Barcelona to win outright at the odds jumps off the board as they look to wrest control of a brutal Group C that is up for grabs.
