Bayern Munich, Nagelsmann get better of Lewandowski’s return

Robert Lewandowski was a key man on his return to Bayern Munich, but not in the way he would have hoped. Lewandowski had the chances—two especially before halftime—but, having survived a shaky first half, it was Bayern Munich that won the clash of the two giants in the UEFA Champions League’s Group C, beating Barcelona 2–0 at the Allianz Arena.

Two wins out of two means Bayern can almost certainly secure its place in the last 16 with a pair of wins over underdog Viktoria Plzeň, while, as always seemed likely, Barcelona’s future in the competition will be decided by its pair of games against Inter Milan. But although this continued a familiar pattern—Barcelona has never won at either the Allianz Arena or the Olympiastadion, while Bayern has now gone unbeaten in 30 group-stage games—it was a world away from Bayern’s pair of 3–0 wins over Barcelona in last season’s competition, when Lewandowski featured for the German powerhouse.

Nagelsmann and Lewandowski share a moment after Bayern Munich’s Champions League win over Barcelona.
