The draw was held this Friday and paired Barça-Bayern and Juventus-Madrid
The Champions League draw which took place this Friday midday paired FC Barcelona with Bayern Munich. Pep Guardiola will come back home, at Camp Nou, where his success as coach started, where he won so many titles. Let's analyze Bayern, the problems Barça might have in these two clashes and which options Barça have to win.
Bayern will not want to give up the ball and the command, and sometimes Barça like it
They are a similar team to what Barça was, but the current Blaugrana team, with Luis Enrique, can hurt Bayern. Guardiola will want to have the ball and control the match, and this season Barça felt comfortable with fast transitions and runs. Barca will meet their mirror with nuances. Bayern will not want to give up the ball and the command, and sometimes Barça like it.
Barça may have a relatively pleasant scenario; they will have to defend well and press. In addition, the Bavarians have the problem of the injuries. We'll see if Robben can come back; Alaba won’t be ready for any of the matches, and we’ll see how Ribéry is. The team will be quiting a delicate situation, although it is disguised by 6 goals to Porto. It won’t be the best Bayern and they will be physically damaged.
