Bayern Munich began their Champions League campaign with another convincing victory over Barcelona — this point a 3-0 win at the Nou Camp. In a game Bayern dominated, like the 8-2 win during this competition two seasons ago, the Germans looked the stronger side from the beginning. It came as no surprise once they took the lead within the 34th minute through a deflected shot by Thomas Muller.
The visitors continued to dominate possession within the second half. Robert Lewandowski scored his first of the evening within the 56th minute with a left-footed shot inside the box. With five minutes remaining, Lewandowski scored his second of the match to assist seal the deal for Bayern. Serge Gnabry’s shot hit the post and therefore the rebound fell to the Polish international to fit past Marc-Andre ter Stegen. A disappointing showing from Barcelona makes it their first opening group game loss in 24 years.
