The cold of Munich, that splinter the bones, does not seem a good omen for this Barcelona in search of some heat. In front of the Totemic Bayern, the group leader of the group, the team of Xavi Hernández is played a classification for the Eighth End of the Champions that had been normal during the last 21 years. The time has changed.
To move forward and dodge the Consolation Award for Europe League, Barça has more than clear accounts. It will go from Ronda if you win. If he does not, he will have to wait for Benfica to not achieve the triumph in Lisbon before the already eliminated dynamo of Kiev. It used football to travel on the border that separates the Heaven from Hell. And here some reasons so that Barça can keep alive the flame of hope. But also to make sure this goes beyond a simple gesture.
Agree. The French end has not yet been a starting this season. He has not marked or assisted either. He has barely played 104 minutes in four times in front of Dinamo, Benfica, Villarreal and Betis. Not much less he has renewed, and who knows if there will be someone in the club that convinces it. In four years he has lost 100 games with an injury. But it is the great hope of this post-messi Barcelona, unable to find any imbalance when he passes from the three-quarters area. A good part of the Bonaventura azulgrana in Munich will go through its guadianescan ways on the side.
With Germany in the fourth wave of Covid (68.78% of Germans have the double vaccination pattern) and Munich with an accumulated incidence of seven days of 399.2, the Bavarian Government decided that Bayern-Barça was played without Public in the stands (2-8 at Da Luz arrived without a public). Who knows if the absence of local amateurs will take to improve the performance of the azulgrana in their parties as a visitor. In the eight meetings disputed away from the Camp Nou this season has only been able to win in two (Kiev and Villarreal), losing at home against Benfica, Atlético and Ray.
Julian Nagelsmann, Bayern's technician, confirmed the absences of Goretzka and Gnabry by injury, and Kimmich and Choupo Mining, who have just passed the coronavirus. Nor is the ownership of Lucas Hernández, with discomfort and that he is aware of sanction. Without Kimmich Ni Goretzka The Bavarian team loses a good part of his creativity and strength in a field center from which Marc Roca could be part, which has only played 23 minutes this season. Those who will play at home are Neuer and Lewandowski. Alpha and Omega.
If Xavi Hernandez intends that the Directive deliver reinforcements in the winter market, and before the prospect of having to continue supporting the Coutinho and Umtiti chips, continuing in the Champions is essential. If the team does not reach the quarterfinals of the competition, a common minimum goal in club budgets, Barcelona will stop earning 20.1 million euros.
Maybe he continues to be wondering Jorge Jesus for that empty gate gate that I missed Seferovic at the sunset of his party at the Camp Nou (0-0). Or if the curse of Bela Guttmann will remain in force, the Hungarian coach who led the Benfica to conquer Europe for two times (1961 and 1962) before being dismissed and foreseen the continental nothing for the Lisboets. Eye evils aside, the Benfica is showing a worrying irregularity in the Portuguese league. It comes from falling at home in front of Sporting (1-3) and is third of the championship, behind its rival Lisboeta and the leader, Porto. The only point that has added the Dinamo of Lights in this phase of groups of the Champions was precisely against Benfica in Kiev (0-0). The work stability of Jorge Jesus is also in question.
Barcelona has never won in Munich. In his five visits he has only been able to start two draws. On April 2, 1996, in the first leg of UEFA semifinals and still with Johan Cruyff as a coach, he tied two thanks to the goals of òscar Garcia and Hagi. It was the day in which Pep Guardiola played from Central. They would end the azulgrana for spoiling the rating falling into the return match (1-2). On April 14, 2009, and after having penetrated Bayern at the Camp Nou in the round of Champions Rooms (4-0), the Azurgrana equalized (1-1) at the process of return. The global statistic of Barça in front of Bayern is despair (eight defeats, two draws and two victories in 12 duels, with 16 goals in favor and 29 against). The last precedents are 0-3 at the Camp Nou of this group stage, and the historical fall in the quarterfinals of the Champions in DA Light (2-8).
In the last classic played by Bayern in Dortmund, the fans of Signal Iduna Park tried to bother to the Polish striker by reminding him that the golden ball had been for Messi. He answered Lewandowski with two new goals. At 33, he does not lower the rhythm. He piles and 27 goals in 21 games this season. Nine of them in the Champions after having marked in the five parties of this group stage. If he returns to see door against Barça, he will equal the record of Christian, which he also made full in the 2017-18 campaign.
Who should be the Fan Franchise of Barcelona after the departures of Messi and Griezmann last summer represents the other side of the coin. He has not yet scored a single goal in this champion league. And although he continues to be the top scorer of a bargain this season (nine goals, three of them of penalty), it is also true that he has not seen door in 12 of the 20 disputed matches. The absence due to anion of Ansu Fati, the heart disease of Kun Agüero and the scarce confidence in Luuk de Jong obliged Xavi to perpetuate his confidence in Memphis as the only offensive reference.Date Of Update: 08 December 2021, 08:58
