Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller scored twice in the first half to give them a 2-0 lead, before Robert Lewandowski added another goal just before halftime. The Bavarians have now won all three of their matches against Barcelona this season and are on course for a potential treble.
Bayern Munich were able to overcome Barcelona 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League matchup. Thomas Muller was the star, scoring two goals and providing an assist.

Bayern Munich is a German football club. is a German football club. dominated Barcelona in their Champions League Group E opener, with goals from Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski settling a fight of the big two.
Muller’s eighth career goal against Barcelona came off Eric Garcia’s back in the first half, giving the German champions complete control of the game.
Lewandowski sealed the victory with a predatory finish, tapping his 74th Champions League goal into an empty net after Jamal Musiala’s shot cannoned against the post.
His 75th goal came late in the game, when he demonstrated his goal-scoring ability with a slashed finish after Serge Gnabry’s effort rebounded off the post and dropped to him in the area.
Barca looked flat and offered nothing in their first Champions League match since Lionel Messi’s departure, failing to register a single attempt on goal.
For the first time in their history, Catalan football has lost three straight home games in European play.
Because to Covid-19 limitations, they finished the game with four adolescents on the field, which did at least add some intensity and raise a lackluster audience of slightly under 40,000.
They were, however, completely trounced, and by a Bayern squad that was not even at its best.
The Germans are in first place in the group, with the other match between Benfica and Dinamo Kiev ending in a 0-0 draw.
‘We are what we are,’ says the narrator.
It’s been 13 months since Bayern Munich brutally exposed Barcelona’s increasing weakness, sending eight past them in one of the most shocking Champions League knockout games in recent memory.
Barca had no idea that matters would only grow worse for them in the months ahead, with Messi’s departure to Paris St-Germain this summer due to a precarious financial position.
They now seem to be a shadow of the team they once were, going through the motions and susceptible to being pushed aside by any team with a strategy and skill, or a world-class team in third gear, like Bayern was.
In the 8-2 defeat in 2020, Messi began up front alongside Luis Suarez. Due to the injury to ex-Middlesbrough striker Martin Braithwaite, Barcelona partnered two previous Premier League flops in Memphis Depay and Luuk de Jong on Wednesday.
It didn’t matter because Bayern cut off the supply, left the home attackers stranded, pressed high, and methodically picked apart a defense that was supposed to be a three but was often stretched into a five.
“It is what it is,” one of the three centre-backs, Gerard Pique, remarked. “We are who we are, and that is the truth.”
“I believe the scoreline is unjust,” Garcia, a fellow defender, said defiantly. The first goal was deflected off of me, and the second goal was deflected off the post and into the hands of Lewandowski.
“I don’t believe we should have been defeated by such a large margin.
“We were facing Bayern, maybe Europe’s greatest team, and if we didn’t keep the ball in midfield long enough, we’d lose. We knew it was going to be a difficult task.”
Bayern Munich are in the midst of their own transformation, with the club’s first response to a leaving manager and aging sections of their squad being to acquire the finest players from closest local rival RB Leipzig.
They have a guy in incoming CEO Julian Nagelsmann whose principles provide for a smooth transition from successor Hansi Flick.
The 34-year-old has both the skill and the tools necessary to make this Bayern team a serious contender for the Champions League this season. Imagine what they’ll be like when they’re in fifth gear.
They’ve now gone unbeaten in 19 European away games, a record in all European competitions, and it’s only going to get better.
Barca, on the other hand, is stagnating and it’s difficult to see how they’ll get back on track. Second place in Group E is not a certain conclusion.
