Bayern Munich vs Barcelona

Bayern Munich will host Barcelona in a most anticipated match in the Champions League Group Stage on Tuesday. Here we have Bayern Munich vs Barcelona prediction, start time, team news, lineup, and head-to-head.

  • Competition: UEFA Champions League 22/23
  • Round: Group C, Matchday 2 of 6
  • Date: Tuesday, 13 Sept.
  • Start Time: 7:00 pm GMT
  • Venue: Allianz Arena, Munich

Barcelona maintained their unbeaten run in La Liga this season with a 0-4 win over Cadiz over the weekend. The most difficult test comes on Tuesday as the Blaugrana faces Bayern Munich.

Xavi’s men will bring a lot of momentum following their 5-1 victory over Plzen in their Champions League opener. Robert Lewandowski, who left Bayern for Barca this summer, will return to Allianz Arena. The Pole scored a hat-trick against Plzen, leading with 6 goals in five matches in La Liga.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich drew 2-2 with Stuttgart in Bundesliga this weekend. However, the Bavarians will be the favorites against Barcelona. Their 0-2 away win over Inter last week reminded how good they still are.

The two met in the Champions League Group Stage last season, with Bayern destroying Barca in both matches. Things have changed remarkably for the Catalan club in less than a year, stronger in offense and solid in defense.

Bayern Munich Lineup and Team News

Kingsley Coman and Bouna Sarr are the lone injury concerns for Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann. Sane, Mane, Pavard, and L Hernandez did’t start against Stuttgart. Well rested, they are expected to be back in the starting XI.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, De Ligt, Lucas, Davies; Kimmich, Sabitzer; Gnabry, Muller, Sane; Mane

Barcelona Lineup and Team News

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Garcia, Balde; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele


Bayern Munich won three out of the previous three head-to-head meetings against Barcelona.

They met in the Group Stage last season, with the German side won 3-0 in both matches. The Bavarians destroyed Barca by 8-2 goals in the 2019-2020 season quarter-final.

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona Score Prediction

With a much improved Barcelona side, it’s not going to be anything like the previous three meetings. We expect a close contest between the two European powerhouses.

The Blaugrana are flying this season, unbeaten in all competitions, scoring a lot of goals. Former Bayern star Lewandowski will be their key player.

On the other hand, the Bavarian have lacked the ruthless touch this season. However, their 0-2 away win over Inter proved they are the favorites against Barcelona at home.

Prediction: Bayern Munich 1-1 Barcelona
