Bayern Munich vs. Barcelona result, highlights

The Blaugrana had battered the hosts, with Bayern looking again off the pace after three straight Bundesliga draws. The only thing that was missing for Barcelona was the final product, and it felt like that eventually, things would fall their way.

Then halftime came and went, and a different Bayern team emerged from the tunnel, unrecognizable from the one that departed the Allianz Arena field at the break.

Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane goals four minutes apart saw the hosts go in front before the hour mark, and Barcelona were yet again sunk by the German opposition which is quickly becoming Public Enemy No. 1 in Catalonia.

Barcelona fell yet again to Bayern Munich, a familiar result in European play, as the Germans yet again get the better of their Spanish opponents.

Bayern Munich vs. Barcelona post-match analysis

Barcelona again fail to shake Champions League nemesis

Barcelona came into this match in much better form than Bayern, and it felt like Xavi’s men were the favorites even on the road to a team that’s given them fits over the years. The first half saw Barcelona in complete control, and it appeared as if the Blaugrana were going to run away with the match if they could just produce a final ball to beat Manuel Neuer.

That never happened. Instead, their old bogey team reemerged.

For the fifth straight time and ninth over all across 14 all-time meetings, Bayern emerged victorious. It’s becoming more than just a fluky trend, as it instead feels as if Bayern are poking a Barcelona voodoo doll in the dressing room.

Bayern Munich vs. Barcelona lineups, team news

Striker Sadio Mane was rested against Stuttgart, coming off the bench for a nine-minute cameo at the end of the disappointing draw.

The defensive pairing of Matthijs de Ligt and Dayot Upamecano has struggled at times to start the year, and it’s Lucas Hernandez who comes in for this match in place of de Ligt. Benjamin Pavard and Marcel Sabitzer are also back in the lineup as well, while young Jamal Musiala is part of the attack in place of Serge Gnabry.

Bayern Munich starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Neuer (GK) — Davies, Hernandez, Upamecano, Pavard — Sabitzer, Kimmich — Musiala, Muller, Sane — Mane.

Bayern Munich subs (9): Ulreich (GK), de Ligt, Mazraoui, Stanisic, Goretzka, Gravenberch, Gnabry, Tel, Chupo-Moting.

Xavi has so many options on this incredibly deep roster that picking a likely lineup each match is difficult, but it figures to look similarly to the previous Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen.

New defensive signing Marcos Alonso made his debut over the weekend against Cadiz and now makes his first Barcelona start, while fellow new man Hector Bellerin heads to the bench after starting over the weekend. In the rest of defense, it’s Jules Kounde on the right plus a center-back pairing of Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen, with Gerard PiqueEric Garcia, and Jordi Alba all available as substitutes.

Barcelona starting lineup (4-3-3): Ter Stegen (GK) — Alonso, Araujo, Christensen, Kounde — Pedri, Busquets, Gavi — Dembele, Lewandowski, Raphinha.

Barcelona subs (12): Tenas (GK), Pena (GK), Pique, Alba, Garcia, Balde, Bellerin, de Jong, Kessie, Fati, F. Torres, Depay.
