With Champions League back on its way, clash between star studded sides i.e. Barcelona and Bayern Munich remains in the headlines. Both the teams have lifted Champions League trophy five times and once again the duo are hunting their sixth title, though several factors indicate that Bavarians have an edge.
There are only few clubs who can match Spanish giants level and Bayern Munich is certainly one among the list. Since 2009, Barcelona have always made it into Champions League quarter finals and now they are up against German giants.
Barcelona are yet to taste defeat in this season’s competition. They have made it to quarter finals from a group which comprised of Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Napoli.
Three draws, one goal winning margin in group stages clashes, and just two clean sheets during their run shows dip in Barcelona’s form. Lionel Messi is still their magician, his wonder goal against Napoli is a clear indication of what he is capable of. But he will certainly need support from his team as he cannot take his handle things lonely against side like Bayern Munich.
On the other hand, German giants carry magnificent record of 100% win ahead of Friday’s knockout clash. They have scored 24 goals, including 10 in two meetings with Spurs, conceding just five goals, Munich were best club among their group.
