Bayern dodges a massacre: Nagelsmann’s surprising decision to host Barcelona

Within the framework of the last date of the group stage of the Champions League, and looking for the pass to the round of 16, the FC Barcelona visit the Allianz Arena this Wednesday, which will not have an audience in the stands due to the rise in coronavirus infections. The Catalans will challenge the Bayern Munich, a rival who for his fortune will make some rotations in his starting eleven when he knows he is classified in the first place of his series. According to German media, after Saturday’s tough game against Borussia Dortmund, at Signal Iduna Park, Julian Nagelsmann has arranged to give rest to some habitual headlines.

Along these lines, according to Kicker magazine, the Bavarian team coach could make a system change compared to the one he used in the German Classic at the weekend. The former Leipzig coach would bet on a scheme with three centrals, two lanes, four steering wheels and a single striker.

Thus, the news of Bayern against Barcelona would go through the entry of Marc Roca by Joshua Kimmich and Corentin Tolisso by Leon Goretzka. The change of scheme would also force Nagelsmann to bet on Jamal Musiala and leave Leroy Sané on the bench, this time.

In this way, the line-up that Bayern Munich would present against Barcelona on Wednesday would be made up of: Neuer, Süle, Upamecano, Lucas Hernández, Gnabry, Davies, Marc Roca, Tolisso, Müller, Musiala and Lewandowski.

The Barça trusts in a triumph

Barça coach Xavi Hernández has no doubts that FC Barcelona, ​​despite the poor results it is reaping at the start of the season, can win at the Allianz Arena and enter the next stage of the Champions League.

“I see the team capable of winning in Munich, we have no choice, we have no choice but to go to win. The most important thing is that we depend on ourselves. We will be the protagonists of the game ”, announced the Egarense coach at a press conference last Saturday.

It should be remembered that the last time that Barcelona and Bayern Munich played without an audience was in August 2020 for the quarterfinals of the Champions League. That match ended in a real disaster for the Catalans after an 8-2 defeat at the Da Luz stadium in Lisbon (Portugal).
