THE TEAM NEWS
Barcelona welcome Bayern Munich in the most exciting match of Tuesday’s Champions League.
Memories from their last meeting are still fresh when the Bavarians managed by Hansi Flick ran riot with a 8-2 win over the Catalans at the Estádio da Luz.
Barcelona fans will see this as a chance for “quick revenge” with a different manager and different team. Though the core of the Bayern team that did the demolition work in Lisbon remains the same.
Bayern Munich came into last season’s competition as defending champions. They were knocked out in the quarterfinals by PSG, the same team that lost to them in the 2019/20 final.
Barcelona were also knocked out of the competition by PSG, but in the round of 16 and this was the first time they failed to reach the quarterfinals since the 2006/07 season.
The teams are meeting in the group phase of the competition for the first time since the 1998/99 season.

Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Prediction
A lot has changed at Barcelona in the last 12 months and they are coming to this competitions with a worst league finish since 2007/08 season. The team’s woes are further worsened by the financial crisis and the exit of Lionel Messi. However they come into this game unbeaten in 3 La Liga matches.
Bayern on the other hand started life under Julian Nagelsmann in fine fashion. Their last 3 games in Bundesliga alone saw 12 goals and their latest is a thumping 4-1 win away at fellow title contenders RB Leipzig.
Whatever the current form is, on the field there is a big mismatch between the teams. The Munich based club has a well-settled squad with every senior player performing at the highest level.
On the other hand, this Catalan outfit is a work in progress. They have several youngsters coming through the system, but few seasons away from emulating the era of Messi and co.
