Off to a great start with Barcelona, Robert Lewandowski is back in Germany to face former team Bayern Munich in a UEFA Champions League 2022-23 Group C encounter, with both teams coming off opening wins. The Bayern Munich vs Barcelona match can be seen live in India on Tuesday night at 12:30 AM (Wednesday).
Lewandowski has nine goals in his first six matches with the Catalan club, including a hat-trick in the 5-1 win against Viktoria Plzen in the UEFA Champions League 2022-23 opener. He has been leading a high-powered Barcelona attack that has outscored opponents 20-2 in six games in all competitions.
Lewandowski, who joined from Bayern for nearly 50 million euros ($50.5 million), was rested early in the Spanish La Liga 2022-23 game against Cadiz on Saturday. He came off the bench in the second half to score the team’s second goal in a 4-0 win.
On the other hand, Bayern Munich, boosted by the arrival of Sadio Mane from Liverpool, opened their UCL account with a 2-0 victory at Inter Milan last Wednesday. Bayern Munich, six-time winners, were surprisingly eliminated by Villarreal in the quarterfinals last season.
