Robert Lewandowski’s departure and Sadio Mane’s arrival brought mixed emotions towards the Bavarian fanbase, which is expected to be seen at the Allianz Arena tonight during the clash in the UCL group stage in the Bayern vs Barcelona live stream.
On Tuesday night, the German giant will play the Catalans in Group C of the Champions League, putting two of the most successful clubs in European football against one another and on last Wednesday, Bayern started their season with a 2-0 victory against Inter Milan, while Barcelona won their opening match of the 2022–23 season, 5-1 over Viktoria Plzen, at Camp Nou.
Kick off: Allianz Arena Stadium, Munich, Germany
3.00 PM (ET)
Villarreal unexpectedly knocked Bayern out of the Champions League in the quarterfinals of the previous season, although they have won this competition six times overall, with their most recent title coming in 2019–20 when they defeated Paris Saint Germain 1-0.
On the contrary, Barcelona was eliminated from the Champions League group stages last season for just the 4th straight in club history, and it turned out to be their maiden elimination since the 2000–21 campaign and there is no escaping the fact that 2021–22 was a challenging campaign for the Spanish giants, but a good summer recruitment window has helped this campaign get off to a great start.
Bayern Munich vs FC Barcelona Team News:
After three consecutive draws in the Bundesliga, FC Bayern Munich are now standing in an awkward position ahead of their epic match against La Liga outfit Barcelona at their home stadium, which will also enable Julian Nagelsmann to bring up fresh tactics against his former pupil Robert Lewandowski, who is now smashing the opponents from the opposite side.
Bayern’s back-to-back draws might pave the way for the away team to pressurize the Bavarian giant, but the history of the Allianz Arena shows that Muller and co have the courage and experience to overcome any kind of threat during the matchdays.
FC Barcelona’s fate is too complicated after having Bayern Munich in their UCL group stage for consecutive years but this season, they are confident enough to challenge the German team at any situation with the addition of fresh players like Raphinha, Kounde, Kessie, Lewandowski and others.
As a result, Catalan manager Xavi is expected to show his masterclass against powerful Bayern in Germany with a view to make a smooth progress in the next round of their UEFA Champions League campaign despite having been placed in the ‘Group of Death’ this season.
Bayern Munich Team Tactics
FC Bayern is expected to play in a 4-2-3-1 system despite having drawn last three of their Domestic League games in the group stage and they are more focused on the middle because star goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is expected to lead the team in the goal post despite having four defenders in front of him. Sadio Mane, the experienced forward, also prepared to give this game everything he had. In addition, Muller also expected to give assists from Muller.
Probable XI: Neuer; Pavard, De Ligt, L Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Sabitzer; Gnabry, Muller, Sane; Mane
FC Barcelona Team Tactics
Even though Barcelona soccer players are more well-known outside of their home league than their teammates inside, they still had to face significant challenges in order to play in the Champions League matches. Coach Xavi Hernandez is expected to play his squad in a 4-3-3 configuration because Spain will be without their star midfielder Nico.
Probable XI: Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, E Garcia, Balde; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele
Players to watch
Sadio Mane (Bayern Munich)
Sadio Mane, the most productive striker for Bayern Munich Football Club, will be the team’s main attacking force in front of Jamal Musiala because of his incredible free-kick skills. The Senegalese winger is also capable of generating incredible corner kicks and long range shots to frazzle the opponents’ nerves.
Robert Lewandowski (FC Barcelona)
This summer, Lewandowski moved from Bayern Munich to Barcelona. The Polish goal scorer has scored nine goals in six games this season across all competitions. Returning to his previous residence, Lewandowski will be looking to make an impact and give his new team the victory and also the Polish wizard’s tactical acumen and excellent technique ahead of the goal post helped Barcelona get off to a fast start against Bayern.
