It was an unhappy return to Munich for Barca striker Robert Lewandowski, who left the Bavarians in the summer after eight years, with the Germans now top of their group on six points from two matches.

Barcelona are on three points, along with Inter. Viktoria Plzen are in last place. Barcelona were dominant for 50 minutes and have only themselves to blame for not taking the lead, with Lewandowski coming close twice and Pedri and Gavi also missing golden chances.

The hosts, who had keeper Manuel Neuer to thank for keeping them in the game, scored five minutes after the restart with defender Hernandez's header from a corner. Before Barcelona had time to regroup, Bayern struck again when Jamal Musiala flicked a perfect pass for Sane and the Germany international slipped the ball past keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Pedri hit the post in the 63rd as Barca tried to bounce back but the Germans comfortably held on for the three points.

Talking about history, both European powerhouses have yielded world-class players in their history, such as Gerd Muller, who scored the most goals in a calendar year, a record that Barcelona ex-talisman Lionel Messi later broke. Furthermore, Lewandowski, one of Bayern Munich's most successful players, joined Barcelona this summer. Both clubs' histories are quite similar, and their meetings have always been goal-fests, with two world-class teams producing riveting action.
