Bayern Munich 2-0 Barcelona: Initial reactions and notes

Initial feedback and notes

  • Bayern Munich pulled a rabbit out of a hat here. How did all this Barcelona dominance lead to two goals… for us? Robert Lewandowski will be furious after his missed chances, he could single-handedly cost Barcelona the match.
  • The next Leon Goretzka gave Bayern the physical strength they lost in the first half. The midfield battle intensified allowing the attack to score at the end.
  • Lucas Hernandez, Dayot Opicano, Nassir Mazraoui and Alfonso Davies all deserve the MotM Awards. Their performance was amazing. Incredible game by them.
  • Thomas Muller made his debut against Barcelona.
  • Leroy Sane maintains his scoring level. A wonderful presentation of it.

70′- Subs: Ryan Gravenburch and Mathis Tal on Mosiala and Sunny.

50′ – GOOOOOOAL! Lucas Hernandez makes the score 1-0!

Half-time notes and analysis

  • Bayern Munich had to hold on to that half. Robert Lewandowski had three clear chances. Frankly, it’s a miracle that it wasn’t a massacre.
  • Barcelona puts pressure on Bayern outside the field. They keep being forced to give simple gifts, it’s infuriating to watch. Don’t these guys practice scrolling?
  • Alphonso Davies is the only Bayern player to play at a record level. He had locked his wing and launched a number of dangerous attacks on his own.
  • Ter Stegen barely had a job to do today, while Neuer made a number of big saves.
  • Dayot Uppicano and Lucas Hernandez had to do a number of recent qualifiers, Barcelona all over Bayern here.

half time: Bayern Munich 0-0 Barcelona.

30′- We’re in half an hour and it’s a miracle how Lewandowski hasn’t scored yet.

19′- Benjamin Pavard appears to have a groin injury. It’s taking off. Mazraoui comes.

Starting: We are in full swing!

1 hour until kickoff: We have a queue! Julian Nagelsmann chose Bayern Munich to play in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Sadio Mane at the top, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane, and Jamal Musiala. Dayot Upamecano replaces Matthijs de Ligt in the center of defence. Otherwise, the xi is as we expected. The team will need to be on top of their game to beat Barcelona tonight.

while over here This is the Barcelona squad if you’re curious. They chose to start Marcos Alonso at LB left-back, but no surprises.

despite the beating intermilan less than a week ago, Bayern Munich In some kind of crisis. The team failed to win three consecutive Bundesliga matches, and now faces the prospect of hosting an In-Form card F.C.B A side at the Allianz Arena.

Although it is a marquee Champions League As a fixture, previous meetings between these two sides were laughably one-sided. Now, thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s exchange between the two teams, parity has been restored. In fact, the Spanish version could be even stronger this time around.

Julian Nagelsmann will know he’s under pressure. Although no one said it out loud, this match against Barcelona will be a real test of his new look. After a summer that saw the team dramatically reconfigured, the coach must deliver appropriate results. He has a star-studded squad at his disposal – the likes of Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, Sadio Mane, Alfonso Davies, all of whom have seen success against the rest in the past. Now it’s all about putting together all of that, to show that Bayern deserve the title of contenders.

It’s Bayern Munich time.
