It could not be.

Barcelona crashed again with Bayern as it has almost always happened throughout history.

The Germans continue being the black beast although yesterday there were moments in which the azulgranas were much superior.

The first half of Xavi's team was remarkable.

They enjoyed numerous occasions to get ahead on the scoreboard, but they did not have the necessary aim.

Lewandowski, so lethal on other occasions, this time was not accurate.

He missed two of the ones he doesn't usually.

And what happens so often in the world of football happened.

He who forgives pays it.

In just three minutes, Bayern won the match with two goals at the start of the second half.

All the work that the azulgranas had done at the beginning collapsed and they were subjugated by their rival.

Barça was planted in the Allianz willing to forget ghosts of the past.

Only two players in the starting eleven had been in the humiliating 8-2 loss to the Germans in Lisbon.


Barcelona came out somewhat insecure and fearful, overcome by pressure from Bayern

, which gave them a greater sense of power.

But it was a mirage.

This Barça is already another team.

On a football and mental level.

The dominance of the Germans was shaken in a flash.

Pedri put fear into their bodies after eight minutes when he stood alone in front of Neuer after a monumental cut, but the goalkeeper won the game by kicking his shot.

The occasion spurred Barcelona on.

The machine started to work with a very effective high pressure.

The work of Gavi and Busquets in the recovery was excellent.

But it was a choral work that of the azulgranas.

And the opportunities began to arrive.

Lewandowski missed two of those that the German is not used to.

Barcelona was eating Bayern.

Good pressure, fast and vertical game.

They failed exclusively in the auction.

Xavi was desperate in the band for these errors in the shot.

It is already known that in Europe you cannot forgive.

In fact, Bayern began to shake Barca's dominance.

Taking advantage of the speed of Davis on the left flank and Musiala on the other side, they took the danger over Ter Stegen.

Mazraoui, who had come on for a Pavard who retired after hitting Marcos Alonso, and Sabitzer had a couple of good chances in just three minutes.

And moments later, Muller and Mané got in the way of a very clear chance for the Germans.

The game had been balanced in those final moments despite the excellent sensations that Barça had transmitted throughout the first half.

The azulgranas asked for a penalty for a challenge from Davis to Dembélé.

It seemed like a foul, but the VAR did not even review the action.

And what has been said, whoever forgives in the Champions League pays for it.

As soon as they came out in the second half, Bayern went ahead on the scoreboard.

An error at the time of defending a corner allowed Lucas Hernández totally alone to connect a header in the small area that went into the net.

A real blow for Barcelona who had been better in the first half

and even a few seconds after the restart Raphinha had another great chance.

And misfortunes never come alone.

The Barça doubted.

Bayern's goal left him touched.

The Germans began to smell the blood and came up.

Three minutes later Sané scored a gallop breaking through the Barça defense down the center, standing alone against Ter Stegen and scoring the second.

Another blow.

Barça was no longer the same.

Bayern began to be a steamroller and the game, now yes, began to remember insults from the past.

The occasions followed one another without the azulgranas being able to put a stop to their arrivals.

Xavi intervened.

He ushered in De Jong and Ferran in place of Gavi and Raphinha.

But the damage was already done.

It is true that Pedri had the golden opportunity to get his team into the game, but his shot hit the post.

Barcelona wanted to, but could not, while the Germans on the counter gave the feeling that at any moment they could put in another.
