Barcelona will face Bayern Munich in Group C in one of the most important games on Match Day 5 of the UEFA Champions League.
Bayern Munich will enter this game leading the group with 12 points, while Barcelona is third with four. A draw will be enough for Bayern Munich to secure first place in this group, but it will complicate matters for Barcelona, who are hoping to avoid a second consecutive group stage exit.
Barcelona have won two games in a row after losing to Real Madrid in the Clasico. They won 4-0 against Athletic Bilbao and have now scored three or more goals in three of their last four games. With five goals in the last four games, Robert Lewandowski has been instrumental in this run.
Bayern Munich has won four consecutive games and will not be intimidated by playing away from home. They’ve won three straight away games and scored two or more in their last four.
Eric Choupo-Moting has emerged as a key player for Bayern Munich, and with four goals in the last three games, he will almost certainly start here as Bayern looks to extend their winning streak. On the Barcelona side, Robert Lewandowski, who is on a scoring streak, is still expected to do well.
