Latest

Bayern has already locked themselves a spot in the round of 16 of the Champions League after winning their opening four group games. If they continue their winning streak in the group's last match, or if second-placed Inter Milan loses to Viktoria Plzen, they will be declared the group's victor. Bayern successfully accomplished it, winning 5-0 at home and 4-2 abroad. Mane will be fired up after starting a competitive game on the bench for the first time as a Bayern player this past weekend. He scored in both games and will be ready to go.

In a convincing victory over Hoffenheim, teenager Jamal Musiala and in-form veteran striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored the goals that brought the Bavarian powerhouse to within one point of Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin. Even though they have recently been without players like Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez, Thomas Müller, and Leroy Sane, Bayern has now won five straight games across all competitions. In Julian Nagelsmann's matchday squad for the trip to Camp Nou, only Müller is anticipated to return, but he might only get a spot on the bench.

Barcelona beat Athletic Bilbao 4-0 on Sunday to maintain pressure on La Liga's top team, Real Madrid, but their chances of joining Bayern in the Champions League knockout rounds are tenuous at best. The Catalans were defeated 2-0 by Bayern in their group opener before losing 2-0 to Inter in back-to-back games on Matchday 3 in Munich. If they lose, Inter win at home against Plzen, or both games are tied, Xabi's team, who is currently third in the qualification standings, will not be able to go to the round of 16.

Concerningly for supporters of Barcelona, the Blaugrana have dropped nine out of a possible twelve games against Bayern in the Champions League. While Lewandowski, who scored 344 goals in eight seasons at Bayern, has added 17 more in 15 outings for Barcelona, the five-time Champions League champions are concerned about the fitness of midfielder Gavi. Former Borussia Mönchengladbach center back Andreas Christensen, along with teammates Ronald Araujo and Sergi Roberto, are unquestionably out.
