Bayern Munich are set to face Barcelona in the Champions League group stage on September 14.
The last time when the two sides met each other, was on August 14 of 2020 in the quarter-final of the European top tier, with the German club beating the rivals with a score of 8 – 2.
The Bundesliga side will be hoping to celebrate another victory over Catalan giants under their new coach Julian Nagelsmann.
The club’s defender Alphonso Davies missed Canada’s World Cup qualifying win over El Salvador in Toronto and returned to Bayern for training. Despite the fitness issues, the sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, however, is optimistic about the 20-year-old’s availability.
Meanwhile, Kingsley Coman and Corentin Tolisso will miss the match due to injuries. As for Serge Gnabry, he is doubtful to feature as he was forced off the field with an injury during the Bundesliga match versus RB Leipzig on Saturday.
So let’s take a look at Bayern Munich’s predicted line up against Barcelona.
