It’s gameweek 2 of the Champions League and two of the most elite teams in Europe would face each other as it’s a match in the ‘group of death; Bayern Munich vs FC Barcelona. These 2 teams surely have the potential to win the UCL this season. Both of them are in firing squad in the Champions League as last time out Bayern defeated Inter Milan 2-0 away from home at the San Siro. Whereas, Barca started their tournament in a sensational way at the Camp Nou as they destroyed Viktoria Plzen 5-1 at the Camp Nou courtesy of an incredible Robert Lewandowski hattrick. So both of theseteams need to perform in a big match like this.
Now Xavi has transformed Barca with the new signings that he has got this summer with the likes of Raphinha, Kounde and Christensen in the list. But this game revolves all around the return of Robert Lewandowski at the Allianz Arena facing his former team and a point to prove that he made the right decision to go to Barca and leave the German club. However, Bayern too have quality cause they have got the likes of Sane, Kimmich, and Gnabry who were there in the team when Nagelsmann’s team defeated the Spanish Giants last season. They also got Sadio Mane who is a direct replacement for the Polish striker. All in all, it would be an interesting match and possibly the match of the season.
