Tooor for FC Barcelona, 2-0 through Aitana
Simon has a lot of space on the right, but pulls the cross too close to goal, allowing Sandra Paños to easily catch the ball.
Schüller gets the ball on the edge of the penalty area in the half-right position and pulls it off immediately. However, her shot is blocked by a defender, allowing the Barca keeper to pick up the ball.
Yellow card for Tainara (Bayern Munich)
The Bavarian central defender falls in the center with a tackle Pina that stays put. Although Tainara clearly plays the ball, she still gets a yellow card.
Bronze Geyse finds a cross from the right half field, which can set the header but is clearly in the forbidden zone. Bayern gets the free kick and builds up.
Even after the lead, Barca has the ball and lets it circulate through their own ranks. Bayern gets no access to the game.
Tooor for FC Barcelona, 1-0 by Geyse
Rapid leadership of Barcelona! Rolfö leaves Rall on the left wing and crosses to the back post to free Crnogorčević. This puts his head in the center, where Geyse only has to nod off into the empty goal. Cold shower for Bayern!
The second round is on! Both teams come out of the dressing room unchanged.
Kick-off 2nd half
It’s 0-0 after 45 minutes between FC Barcelona and FC Bayern! The Catalans dominate the game with a lot of possession and had more compelling chances. But FC Bayern also find themselves in transition situations again and again and have been very good on the defensive so far. If the Munich team plays a counterattack cleanly, an away win is not impossible here – but FC Barcelona is closer to the lead!
Bronze takes aim from 20 meters in the right-hand position with the first contact, but the shot slips over the instep of the right-back. The ball clearly goes past the right post into the goal.
Barcelona constrict FC Bayern around their own penalty area, but the defensive association of the Munich team is secure and Barca hardly come to really clear conclusions.
Double chance for Barca! First Aitana asks Tainara to dance and closes from an acute angle in the half-left position. Grohs saves to the side, from where a Barca cross sails into the penalty area, which Crnogorčević heads well over the goal at the free second post. A Barca lead would not be undeserved by now!
María León takes a corner kick straight to the Bayern goal from the right, but Grohs is able to react and intercepts the cheeky corner with both hands.
The play equipment comes to Stanway via Simon and Bühl, which Schüller wants to operate with an interface pass. But it’s a bit too steep, so the Barca keeper is on the ball before Schüller.
FC Bayern can establish themselves in the opposing half, at the end of the ball possession phase, Bühl crosses from the right into Sandra Paños’ arms.
Now Bayern can switch and Kett gets a corner kick on the left side of the penalty area. Sandra Paños misjudges this one, but a Blaugrana defender can clear the center with a header.
After a short relief phase, FC Barcelona has everything under control again. The Catalans start early and don’t let Bayern rest. The away team is rarely able to free itself from the pressing.
The Munich women clear a Barca corner too short, Aitana takes the ball with the first contact and closes with the second. The powerful left-footed shot shoots hair sheep over the crossbar into the goal. Since the conclusion was very important, Grohs would have been there.
This time Schüller runs at high speed towards the last chain in Barcelona, but her play is too imprecise. In the current phase, FC Bayern manages to provide relief and get into dangerous areas. The last pass is then always too imprecise.
Bayern want to switch and move the ball with Zadrazil on the right side to Rall, who wants to put Schüller in the limelight with a long ball near the center line. However, this is too long and the promising switching situation fizzles out.
The Catalans have significantly more possession of the ball, but Bayern are compact and hardly allow combinations from the home team.
The following corner is cleaned at the first post by Lea Schüller.
Barca move quickly from the right to the left, where Crnogorčević throws it at Aitana in the penalty area. The Spaniard finishes with the first contact, but Viggósdóttir throws himself into the finish and clears for a corner.
Bayern are now also registering in the game! Stanway steals the leather in his own half and drives it forward. The ball lands on the half-left side at Bühl via Schüller. The winger tried it from 15 meters under pressure with her weaker left, but only landed on the side netting. So can be a way to annoy FC Barcelona today.
Geyse gets the leather on the right flank near the baseline, lets Viggósdóttir step out, but finds no buyer in the center. Barca are clearly better in the game!
FC Barcelona is wide awake from the start and presses Bayern hard. As a result, the Munich women have problems building up the game and are not yet able to develop.
There’s a fire in FC Bayern’s penalty area early in the game! Zadrazil slips away in the build-up and Barca can switch. Stanway was able to clear the first shot attempt at the last moment, but the second ball landed again on a Barca attacker. Geyse cannot put enough pressure on the following half-high pass from five meters half-right position. Grohs can block to the side with quick reactions.
The ball rolls! Referee Cheryl Foster kicked off the game, in which Bayern will play in red shirts and Barca in blue shirts.
Blaugrana coach Jonatan Giráldez has made six changes to his starting XI since last weekend’s 8-0 league win: goalkeeper Sandra Paños, full-back Bronze and striker Geyse are all in the starting XI. Coach Alexander Straus makes three changes for the Munich team: Tainara, Kett and the German international striker Schüller are new to the starting line-up compared to the cup success against Duisburg.
FC Bayern have won all of their last four games. In the DFB Cup, he even won 7-0 in Duisburg, where left-back Carolin Simon drew attention to herself with a brace. After a draw in the opening game of the Bundesliga and a defeat in Wolfsburg, the German championship seems to be a long way off, but the last games show a clear upward trend.
Last weekend, FC Barcelona beat Alaves 8-0 in front of their home crowd, in which Fridolina Rolfö also scored. The 29-year-old Swede played for Bayern Munich for two and a half years and then ended up with the Catalans via VfL Wolfsburg. It should be a special game for them today. Barcelona star Alexia Putellas remains absent through injury.
The home team from Barcelona is doing flawlessly this season: so far, the 2021 Champions League winner has won every one of its competitive games and is enthroned in first place in the league and Champions League group. FC Bayern has also scored six points from the first two games in the premier class, but is only third in the league. There, the Munich women are already five points behind their championship competitor Wolfsburg.
Welcome to the third day of the Women’s Champions League! At 6.45 p.m. FC Barcelona and FC Bayern Munich meet at the Camp Nou.
