Insight and Analysis: Bayern Munich vs Barcelona UCL 2021 Match Prediction.

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona UCL 2021 Match Prediction Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Preview and Where to Watch.

Bayern Munich had a tremendous weekend, beating great rivals Borussia Dortmund 3-2 in a tense ‘Der Klassiker’ duel to move four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga standings.

They come into this encounter against Barcelona having already clinched first place in UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group E after winning all five of their previous group stage matches, averaging 3.8 goals per game.

That includes a 3–0 away H2H victory at Camp Nou on matchday one, extending their winning streak against Barça to three games – the greatest such run by visitors against any team in European football history.

Bayern has also won 22 of their previous 23 UCL home group stage matches (D1), a streak that dates back to 2013/14, adding to their confidence.

Barcelona’s late 1-0 home loss to Real Betis over the weekend was hardly ideal preparation for this critical UCL match, especially given that the setback broke their previous six-game unbeaten streak (W3, D3).

With a two-point lead over Benfica in second place in Group E, only a win here would ensure the Catalans’ qualification for the knockout stages, considering their 0-2 head-to-head record against the Portuguese side.

That could be a difficult challenge, since Barcelona has scored just four goals in their last eight UCL matches, and they haven’t scored more than once in a UCL encounter since December 2020 – the longest such streak in competition history.

Players to Watch

Thomas Müller of Bayern Munich is a fan of this match, having scored seven goals in six previous UCL encounters against Barcelona, including the game’s first goal in the reverse H2H.

Ousmane Dembélé of Barça is anticipated to play in this encounter and has three goals in four previous meetings with Bayern (G1, A2).

Hot Stats

Bayern has scored two or more goals in each of their last 11 UCL home games.

Team News

Bayern Munich

Lucas Hernandez is unlikely to be risked against Barcelona, knowing that a booking here would rule them out of their first knock-out match in 2022.

Bayern Munich may be without Michael Cuisance, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, and Joshua Kimmich for the remainder of COVID-19.

Marcel Sabitzer, Bouna Sarr, and Josip Stanisic will all miss Wednesday’s game due to injury.

Tanguy Nianzou returned from a shoulder injury to play against Borussia Dortmund at the weekend and is expected to start this match.

Julian Nagelsmann is anticipated to make changes in general, with first place assured.


  • Frenkie de Jong and Gerard Pique are expected to return to the starting XI after coming off the bench in defeat to Real Betis at the weekend. 
  • Former Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Demebele may also come in, replacing Philippe Coutinho on the wing. 
  • Teenage winger Abdessamad Ezzalzouli looks good for another start here after coming into the first-team under Xavi.
