TI have an idea Barcelona take over Bavaria suggests very different thoughts than it would have been just a few months ago. The two meet in Champions League on Tuesday, and the game comes at a better time for the Catalans than for the Bavarians.
One might even say that Javi Hernandezthe team is the favorite to play at the Allianz Arena, and Robert Lewandowski being patted by their hand is an important factor why this is so. Of course, this is his return to the house he was forced to leave last summer.
Barcelona six games have been played this season. They won five immediately after drawing in the first leg and scored 20 goals, conceding only two.
Lewandowski, of course, stands out. He is in great form, having scored nine goals so far this season, two of them in the first leg of the Champions League. He has already settled in Catalonia.
But Bavaria started the season differently. They hesitated a bit and only won three out of six games. However, they scored an impressive 19 goals and made short work of Inter in their first Champions League game.
Bavaria slide in an abnormal way, and there is a strange atmosphere in the locker room.
“For the first time this season, I’m angry,” he said. Thomas Muller. “If we want to win every game, which is our goal, we have to go all the way in every game.
“It doesn’t matter if we have an important game in the middle of the week. In our current situation, we must give our best to the end. If we want to get back to the top of the table, which we are doing, then we need to take a good look at ourselves.
Trainer Julian Nagelmann joined Mullerthe senses.
“I don’t know if the pressure has increased, it is always subjective and comes from outside,” said the coach. “We will continue to work, train, analyze and try to get good ideas.”
director Hasan Salihamidzic warned that Bavaria “in the match with Barcelona you will have to increase the speed by two gears, even three,” and pointed to the threat Lewandowski.
