This Wednesday night, it was against Benfica, a team of a level much lower than that of the Munich ogre and which is therefore supposed to be within the reach of Barça. read also The Benfica-Barcelona film The Dutch coach did not keep his initial system for long. It must be said that the Lisbon people only needed three minutes to thwart the plans of the visitors. Launched in depth, Darwin Nunez spun behind the backs of the three defenders (Garcia, Araujo, Pique), and took all his time to analyze the situation, control, transplant in the axis and slide the ball to the near post. In total distress, Gerard Pique was replaced by the young midfielder Gavi (17) from half an hour into the game, two minutes after he miraculously escaped a second yellow by cutting an opposing counter-attack. But this change did not change the history of the meeting. On the contrary, Nunez found the post (52nd) after a completely missed exit from Ter Stegen and Rafa Silva knocked out the Catalans after a scramble (69th). Nunez, again, gave the Spanish evening an even more nightmarish dimension by scoring from the penalty spot (79th). Luuk de Jong clumsy Pedri had tried to sound the revolt with his laser passes and his long shots (18th). But Luuk de Jong missed two huge opportunities on discounts from his namesake Frenkie (11th, 30th). The rest of the meeting was a long way of the cross for FC Barcelona. As a symbol, Eric Garcia received a second yellow at the very end of the match on a foul play. After two days, FC Barcelona did not frame a single strike in the Champions League. The Blaugrana find themselves last in Group E with zero points on the clock. They are already back to the wall before the double confrontation against Dynamo Kiev. Bayern and Lewandowski still shine Carried by a very good Robert Lewandowski who offered himself a new double, Bayern Munich easily disposed of Dynamo Kiev (5-0) on Wednesday at the Allianz Arena. Upon returning from the locker room, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané and Eric Choupo-Moting ended the recital which had been masterfully started by the Pole. Julian Nagelsmann’s men thus confirm their authoritarian victory at Camp Nou (3-0) and win a ninth consecutive match in all competitions. The winners of the 2020 edition keep first place in group E.
