Bayern Munich banked all three points against the Barcelona in a 2-0 victory on Tuesday, at Allianz Arena. Both teams arrived in good form, having secured victories in their previous matches. Bayern were looking to continue their good run after winning last match. Barca had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 5-1 victory against Viktoria Pilsen. Bayern and Barca sit 1st, (6 points) and 2nd, (3 points), spots respectively, after 2 matches.

After an uneventful first half, whatever was said in the dressing room at half time, seemed to have a positive effect on Bayern who started the second half strongly, with an early goal from Lucas Hernandez in the 50th minute. However they weren’t finished yet and Leroy Sane made it 2-0, 54 minutes in to make it 2-0.

Substitutions for Bayern included Noussair Mazraoui, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Mathys Tel and Ryan Gravenberch for Benjamin Pavard, Marcel Sabitzer, Sadio Mane, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala, respectively. Barca replaced Gavi, Raphinha, Andreas Christensen, Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Busquets for Frenkie De Jong, Ferran Torres, Eric Garcia, Ansu Fati and Franck Kessie.
