Bayern Munich vs Barcelona LIVE: Champions League team news and line-ups as Robert Lewandowski kicks off

Lewandowski really wants to play against his former team, says Barcelona coach Xavi on the eve of the clash with Bayern Munich

It’s a clash between two European heavyweights tonight as Bayern Munich host Barcelona. Julian Nagelsmann’s side are unbeaten this season but sit third in the Bundesliga after three draws in their first six games and may be wondering if letting prolific striker Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona this summer was a good idea .

Bayern won their Champions League opener away at Inter Milan 2-0 thanks to a nice finish from Leroy Sane and an own goal from Danilo D’Ambrosio, but they have to face their former striker without the help of Kingsley Coman, who a hamstring injury keeps him out of the game.

Meanwhile, Lewandowski’s first European game for the Spanish giants was spectacular as the 34-year-old scored a hat-trick against FC Viktoria Pilsen, who really lost out in this group stage.
