Wednesday will be the last day of the Champions League group stage. On this day, we will get to know all the participants of the knockout stage, and the fight in several matches will certainly be fierce. The eyes of many fans around the world, however, will be focused on the most emotional game in Munich, where Bayern will host FC Barcelona.
FC Barcelona’s last chance. Lewandowski is fighting to return to the leader of the shooter classification
Wednesday’s match in Munich will be decisive for FC Barcelona in the context of promotion to the knockout stage. It may turn out that the Catalan club will be missing from the knockout stage of the Champions League for the first time in more than 20 years. The last time this was the case in the 2000/2001 season, and then the team led by Lorenzo Serra Ferrer had to be content with playing in the UEFA Cup.
At the moment, Xavi Hernandez’s team is second in Group E for a promotion, but only two points ahead of the third Benfica, who will face Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday. The scale of the difficulty is therefore incomparable, because Bayern is one of the main favorites to win the tournament. However, if the FC Barcelona players do not want to see the results of their rivals, they have to win in Munich. Otherwise, they can only count on the fact that Benfica will not win against Dynamo.
However, there are no indications that Bayern would give up Wednesday’s meeting, despite the fact that it has already been promoted. It is true that Julian Nagelsmann’s team will lack such important figures as Serge Gnabry or Joshua Kimmich, but they will be properly replaced. In addition, Robert Lewandowski is to appear on the pitch from the beginning, who will want to return to the position of the leader of the Champions League scorer classification. In the first match between the two teams, won by the German champions 3-0, the Pole scored two goals.
