Two of the biggest European sides clash in the Champions League on Tuesday, as Barcelona travel to the Allianz Arena to take on Bayern Munich. Both sides got their 2022-23 European campaigns off to strong starts, and both will be optimistic about recording a second straight win in the competition on Tuesday.
Champions League Preview
For the second straight season, Barcelona and Bayern Munich clash in the Champions League group stages. The Spanish giants will be hoping for better in the competition this term, as they failed to finish in the top two positions last term.
However, they are certainly looking like a more well-rounded team under Xavi this term, as they are unbeaten across all competitions at this stage of the season. Barcelona kicked off their Champions League season in fine form last weekend, as they recorded a resounding 5-1 success at home against Viktoria Plzen.
Robert Lewandowski could be key to Barca’s chances this season, and he opened his account for his new side in commanding fashion with a stunning hat-trick. Franck Kessie also scored on his European debut for the Catalonian giants, while Ferran Torres netted the fifth goal in the win.
Lewandowski will return to his old stomping ground this weekend, as Bayern Munich look for a second straight win in Europe. Things haven’t been going well for the Bavarian side domestically, but they certainly looked more than up for the fight in their Champions League opener last week.
Bayern were fine winners in the San Siro last week, as they claimed a routine 2-0 victory in Milan against Inter. Leroy Sane opened the scoring after just 25 minutes, while an own goal just after the hour mark ensured that maximum points were going the way of the German giants.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona Head to Head
Bayern has a very strong record against Barcelona, as they have picked up victories in eight of the previous eleven meetings between the sides. That includes a run of four straight victories against their Spanish opponents. Barcelona has a worse record against Bayern than any other side in the Champions League.
Bayern Munich vs Barcelona Prediction
This is a fascinating battle at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday, and it will be interesting to see how far Barcelona have come. However, Bayern’s record is a hard one to look past, as we could see them getting the narrow victory in this battle of European heavyweights.
