In this group, they played a match day match, and 2020 winner Barcelona hosted Bayern Munich. That season, exactly 13 months ago, the Bavarians defeated the Catalans 8-2 in the quarter-finals, and Lionel Messin reportedly filled the cup at the time. Then the Argentine reconciled, but in the end he still had to leave due to the financial regulations of the Spanish League and the near bankruptcy of Barcelona, and signed a contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
Without them, a new era of garnets began, it was time that they weren’t the favorites in a local BL match.
Bayern played better in the first half and went ahead with a lucky goal, Thomas Muller’s shot bounced off the bottom of Eric Garcia, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen was completely helpless. Muller scored his seventh goal against Barcelona, and no one scored for the Catalans at the international level.
In the second half, the Munich team did not even have 10 minutes to double their lead. Jamal Musiala’s bombshell still hit the post, but Robert Lewandowski caught the fastest and fired the ball into the empty net, making him 18th (!) Bayern Munich in a row.
In the 85th minute, the Polish scored his second goal in a frightening way, receiving a ball that rebounded from the goal post, but this time he bombed the goal not immediately, but after he placed a Catalan defender.
With that, he even set the final score, and Barcelona completed this match without even scoring the goal, and this never happened to the team in the Premier League.
There was no weight class between the two teams.

A quarter of an hour later, due to the John Brooks Show, the French got a serious chance but could not take advantage.
He was left without a goal, although Lille still seemed to have taken a penalty in the 97th minute, but in the end the referee denied the team with this.
