Champions League : Bayern Prepare For Group E Match Against Barcelona

Bayern Munich and Goalscoring Star Robert Lewandowski begin their quest for a seventh European crown when they head to Barcelona in UEFA Champions League Group E.

After Bayern dented Barca's dream of success in the champions league some 13 months ago when they beat Barca 8-2, the Catalan Club's heaviest ever European defeat, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann now rejects the notion of being the 'favourite'.

Bayern has started the new season in good form. The best fifa men's player Lewandowski is currently on a club-record run of having scored in each of his last 17 competitive appearances going back to February, while he's got six goals in the first four matches of the 2021/22 bundesliga campaign.

Bayern goalkeeper and Captain Manuel neuer anticipated a tight game.

With Lionel Messi now at PSG, this will be the first time Bayern have faced Barcelona without the argentine since November 1998, when sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic scored in a 2-1 win.
