The last time Barcelona played Bayern Munich in the Champions League, the Catalonians were annihilated 2-8 by the German champions. The catastrophic loss led to a large-scale exodus at FC Barcelona and did the club unprecedented damage in terms of its popularity. Today a new-look Barcelona will play host to the Bavarians without their talismanic player Lionel Messi, who has moved to PSG. Although the side has not improved much since that defeat, they have done well to secure 7 points from 3 games in La Liga. Opponents Bayern Munich had an opening day setback in the Bundesliga but with a hat-trick of wins on the bounce, they are looking in top shape. Barcelona versus Bayern Munich will be telecasted on Sony Ten network and streamed on Sony Liv app from 12:30 am IST. Barcelona's Martin Braithwaite To Miss Bayern Munich Clash In UEFA Champions League 2021-22 Due To Injury
Sergio Aguero, Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele have been ruled out for Barcelona due to injuries which is a problem for the hosts. Memphis Depay has looked sharp in the games he has played and all eyes will be on the Dutchman as he links up with Phillipe Coutinho and Luuk de Jong in a front three. Skipper Sergio Busquets is the calming influence in the middle with Frenkie de Jong and Pedri looking to push up and assist the forwards.
Serge Gnabry picked up a knock against Leipzig and is set to undergo a late fitness test to determine his availability for Bayern Munich. Jamal Musiala is the ideal replacement for the former Arsenal man should he fail to make the cut. Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller continue to spearhead the Bavarian’s attack while the likes of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka spray the passes from a deep-lying midfield position. Bayern Munich start as the favourites against Barcelona given the latter has lost some of its old prestige and quality. The hosts will have to put in a spirited show for them to gain three points from the match.
