FC Barcelona has fallen this Tuesday in his Champions League debut against Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou (0-3), a match in which Ronald Koeman’s men were unable to finish off against a clearly superior rival and that confirmed their dominance with a Robert Lewandowski double. Absolute and overwhelming superiority. Barça was once again a toy in the hands of the German team, who dominated each and every facet of the game, cornering him in his area and making him relive the greatest of his nightmares: the sultry 2-8 of the 2020 ‘Champions’ quarterfinals in Lisbon.
Thomas Müller, in an auction with fortune after half an hour, and Robert Lewandowski, by catching a couple of rejections in the second half, sealed the victory for the 2020 continental champion and corroborated the urgencies that those of Ronald Koeman are going through, who also lost Jordi Alba due to injury. All despite the fact that the Catalans tried at the start, although they were diluted with the minutes as a result of the intense pressure of Julian Nagelsmann’s team, ready to make blood and with Musiala in a state of grace. Sané warned in the first minutes with a shot that touched the defense but did not mislead an attentive Ter Stegen.
Already in minute 27, Araujo finished off with a header a lateral free kick thrown by Memphis that went out for very little, in the only occasion culé of the first part, just before that Müller managed to open the can to reward Bavarian insistence; the fireproof German striker fired from outside the area and his kick hit Eric García’s back, misleading the local goalkeeper enough (min.34).
While Koeman’s men were unable to get close to Neuer’s domains in the resumption, the Barça goalkeeper had to reappear to disrupt a very clear chance for Sané with his foot. However, he was unable to do anything after Lewandowski picked up a rebound after a shot to the post by Musiala (min.56). Koeman tried to react by bringing in young people like Gavi or Demir and Philippe Coutinho, who had not played since December, but the misfortunes accumulated in the form of Jordi Alba’s injury, even with Bayern loosening up in the last leg of the meeting. And there was still the sentence.
Back in 85, Lewandowski – who has scored in all the games he has played for Bayern this season: 10 goals in six games – was in charge of closing the win in a play similar to that of his first tantor, a loose ball after hitting the post that, after getting rid of the culé behind, sent to the bottom of the meshes. The disconnection of the public with their own was already total. With this, Barça closes a bitter debut in the ‘Champions’, where it is bottom of Group E, in the that Dinamo Kiev and Benfica opened with a goalless draw (0-0).
