Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich result: Robert Lewandowski scores twice, German side crushes Blaugrana

Muller has scored more UEFA Champions League goals than any other player against Barcelona. He got his German team ahead with a 34th-minute shot that was deflected as it went to goal. Lewandowski scored two goals in the second period, both off rebounds from shots made by teammates.

Barcelona was not very aggressive, with Ronald Araujo scoring a set-piece goal. Ronald Koeman, Barcelona's manager introduced a parade for teen players in the second period. The result was clearly beyond his club's reach.

Postgame, Gerard Pique from Barcelona said that it was a difficult result to play at home. Bayern Munich is an experienced club, with many great players who have been playing together for a long period of time. After a rebound, which was a bit of luck on our part, they scored the second goal. It was extremely painful for us. We played with five to six 18-year-olds and they did a great job. They are the future of the club. We must invest in them. They are the future of our club."

The once-mighty Barcelona must fight to get out of Group E, which also includes Dynamo Kiev or Benfica. Koeman warned that the club faces a difficult season due to its failure to resign Lionel Messi, as well as losing other players to transfer. Due to injuries, the club was also without three top attackers.

Pique said, "It's true that it's not been the best time since my last visit." "But we will grow up and we will be more successful, and I'm certain that at the end the year we will be competing for the titles. Ansu [Fati], Ousmane[Dembele] & [Sergio] Kun Aguero are three of the players I believe can help us. We must keep winning until they return because I believe they can help us tremendously.
