Barcelona vs Bayern set to face each other in Quarter Finals of UEFA Champions League 2019-21. With Bayern striker, Robert Lewandowski in the form of his life will be ready to go head to head against Catalonian giant on 14 August at 09:00 PM CEST, 08:00 PM BST, 03:00 PM ET, and on 15 August at 12:30 AM IST. However, Barcelona is not playing at their best but we all know what Lionel Messi is capable of doing especially against Bayern Munich, I’m sure that Neuer and Jerome Boateng still remember that night.
Barcelona vs Bayern
Bayern Munich has booked their place in the last 8 by defeating the Chelsea 4-1 (7-1 on aggregate). In the second leg, Lewandowski scored two goals and provided two assists. In this season, Lewa is already managed to score 53 goals in 44 matches in all competitions.
He is the highest goal scorer among Europe’s top 5 leagues. Since December 2019 Bavarian are unbeaten, they have won 26 out of 27 matches they have played.
In terms of silverware, Bayern already has won the Bundesliga and DFB Pokal and now they are aiming for the Champions League trophy, to win the treble this season. Jerome Boateng, Benjamin Pavard, and Kingsley Koman are injured so they are likely to miss the quarter-final. However, we can see Phillipe Coutinho in action against his parent club.
When and where to watch FC Barcelona v Bayern Munich
Unlike Bayern, FC Barcelona has struggled domestically this season. They already have lost the LaLiga title to the arch-rivals Real Madrid and have knocked out of the Copa Del Rey too. Barcelona booked their spot in the last 8 of UCL by beating Napoli 3-1 (4-1 on aggregate). Now, their key player back in the squad after a long time injury period, FC Barcelona looks strong.
Ex-Dortmund player Ousmane Dembele has returned to the training ground after having a hamstring surgery and Sergio Basquet is also fit to play in Quarterfinals. In past encounters, Barcelona has managed to beat Bavarian quite a few times. It will be interesting to see how things take a turn this time with both teams are in a different form.
