Barcelona – Bayern Munich | 14/09/2021 UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

The uefa champions league is back in action with the european giants barcelona and Bayern munich are locking horns on tuesday in the UEFA champions league season of 2021 – 2022. The two teams are beginning their respective quests for Champions League glory with a blockbuster Group E clash at Camp Nou on Tuesday night. La Blaugrana took third place in the 2020-21 La Liga season to secure another safe passage into the group stages, while Bayern’s perennial reign of dominance in the German top flight continued.

Two of Europe’s most decorated sides in Barcelona and Bayern Munich clash here to kick off proceedings in UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group E. With both sides largely expected to qualify from the group, this clash could turn out to be vital in the battle for top spot and represents the two outfits first meeting since the German champions battered the Catalan side 8-2 at the 2019/20 UCL quarter-final stage.

Not playing domestically this weekend, Barça will be fresh for this showdown and despite still suffering from a Lionel Messi sized-hole in their line up, remain unbeaten in their first three La Liga matches this campaign (W2, D1). Ronald Koeman’s side have also lost just three of their last 62 home UCL matches (W50, D9), which will further raise confidence ahead of this matchup.

Despite the departure of former manager Hansi Flick over the off-season, Bayern have started the new Bundesliga season in emphatic form, remaining unbeaten in their first four matches (W3, D1) under new boss Julian Nagelsmann. That run includes a 4-1 away demolition of Leipzig last time out as Bayern hunt a tenth straight German top-flight title.

They’ll be right in the mix for UCL success this season as well considering the Bavarian side won this competition in 2019/20. Incredibly, Bayern remain unbeaten in their last 18 away UCL matches (W14, D4), the longest such undefeated streak in competition history, whilst they further boast a fantastic H2H record against the hosts (W7, D2, L2).
