Barcelona vs Bayern Munich Report 14 September 2021.

Barcelona lost their opening UEFA Champions League (UCL) game for the first time since 1997 as they were outclassed by Bayern Munich in a 3-0 rout at Camp Nou. 

Bayern were able to overcome a strong start from the hosts to wrestle back control of the match, and looked the far more dangerous side going forward. Leroy Sané had their best chance of the early stages, thundering a volley that was saved by a combination of Marc-André Ter Stegen’s right glove and his face. Jamal Musiala saw a dangerous effort blocked, before the visitors went into the lead ten minutes before HT. Thomas Müller was left in far too much space outside the box, before his long-range shot deflected off Eric García, completely wrong footing Ter Stegen. The 32-year-old has now scored seven times in six meetings with Barcelona, meaning he’s now scored more against the Catalan giants than any other player in UCL history.

The visitors looked even more comfortable after the break before Robert Lewandowski doubled their lead. Barcelona had no answer for their play in and around the box, before Musiala’s shot rebounded off the post where the Polish international was waiting to pounce. Lewandowski added a third in the closing stages, this time capitalising on a Serge Gnabry effort that struck the woodwork before emphatically finishing Barca off. Incredibly, Lewandowski has now scored in 18 consecutive Bayern matches – scoring a total of 29 in that time.

Ronald Komena’s side offered very little threat in a desperate performance, but he’ll still be confident of progressing from a group that also contains Benfica and Dynamo Kyiv. Bayern, who barely progressed out of second gear, sent out a resounding message to the rest of Europe’s heavyweights about their credentials, as they search for their seventh European crown.
