The UEFA Champions League 2nd match continues today as Bayern Munich host La liga giant, Barcelona.

Bayern Munich with the assist of Robert Lewandoski trounced Barcelona in the 2020 UCL at the semi-final by 8 goals to 2.

While being drawn together in the group stage of 2022 UCL, Thomas Muller, believes the team’s Champions League clash against Barcelona will be an open game.

Bayern opened their section with a 2-0 victory at Inter Milan last Wednesday, while Barcelona won 5-1 over Viktoria Plzen at Camp Nou in their first game of the 2022-23 competition.

Bayern have actually not been victorious in the Bundesliga since August 21, though, drawing each of their last three matches against Borussia Monchengladbach, Union Berlin and Stuttgart.

Speaking ahead of the game, Muller said, “We have to play our game. Barcelona are strong in the transition game, and it is important to take Lewy out of the game.”

“Our game is designed to be bilious when we lose the ball.”

“The game will be more open. The three draws in the league were against opponents who are heavily defended at the back.”
