Barcelona and Bayern Munich will ensure the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League starts with a bang.
The teams will meet Tuesday in Barcelona at Camp Nou in their Champions League Group E opener. The matchup features European giants who are at crossroads in their respective recent histories. Barcelona is in its first season without superstar Lionel Messi, who joined PSG last month. Bayern is in its first campaign under 34-year-old head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who also inherited a squad in transition from one dominant era to a less-certain future.
Bayern hammered Barcelona 8-2 in the 2019-20 Champions League quarterfinals in their previous meeting.
