Barcelona faced off against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a good result away from home in the UEFA Champions League. The Catalan outfit made a solid start to the game and managed to get into the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.
However, Barca made a poor start to the second half and conceded the opening goal in the 50th minute when Lucas Hernandez scored with a brave header. Leroy Sane doubled the home side’s advantage just four minutes later with an excellent finish. The contest ended with Barcelona suffering a disappointing 2-0 loss on the road.
