FC Barcelona logically suffered the law of Bayern Munich this Tuesday at Camp Nou, during the first day of the Champions League (0-3).
The last time the Bayern invited here at Camp Nou, in August 2020, the score was particularly heavy for the Barça, then crushed to the improbable score of 2-8. It was not in such proportions that the Munich were imposed on Tuesday night in Catalonia, of course, but this time again the Blaugranas were unable to compete with the 2020 European champion.
For this first evening of the 2021-2022 Champions League – the first without a Messi who will undoubtedly have left an abyssal void behind him – FC Barcelona, deprived of the offensive of Agüero, Dembélé, Ansu Fati or even Braithwaite, suffered the law of the Bavarian ogre without managing to frame the slightest strike (a first in C1 for the club since 2003). Despite his successful debut in La Liga, the former Lyonnais Depay this evening could not be distinguished. Unlike its Munich counterpart Lewandowski.
Lewandowski, of course …
Certainly, Bayern did not lack success by opening the scoring on a shot from Müller deflected by the unfortunate Garcia (0-1, 34e). But in the second half, the difference in level between the two teams became glaring, allowing the essential Polish striker to go there with his double (0-2, 56e ; 0-3, 85e).
Sure of his strength, the Rekordmeister signs a 19e consecutive match without setback outside its bases in C1 (including 15 successes) and sends a message that could not be clearer to the competition. Barça will try to recover in front of Dynamo Kiev and Benfica Lisbon (0-0 between the two clubs in Ukraine this evening).
