Bayern Munich face Barcelona in the last match of the group stage of the Champions League. The Bavarians unequivocally secured the first place in Group E after playing the fourth round. Bayern is unreachable at the top with an asset of 15 points after five wins. However, the battle for second place has not been resolved. At the moment, Barcelona has an advantage of only two points over Benfica, but they may not be enough. If the Portuguese club beats Dynamo Kyiv, only a victory against Bayern will send the Catalans to the 1/8 finals.

Judging by the performance of Barcelona and Bayern, such a scenario seems very unlikely. For the Bavarians, the final outcome is irrelevant for the ranking in the group, but they are unlikely to make gifts. Moreover, it will be far more profitable for Bayern to beat Barcelona and actually eliminate a stronger opponent on the way to the finals. So far, the Bavarians are very successful as hosts and lost only to Eintracht with 2: 1 in early October.

Xavi took the lead at Barcelona and somewhat stabilized the game in defense. However, over the weekend Barcelona suffered another defeat at their "Camp Nou" in La Liga, losing 1-0 against Betis. The victory of Real Madrid against Real Sociedad allowed the "White Ballet" to break even further in the standings and it is now absolutely certain that the Catalans are out of the battle for the title.

The zero draw with Benfica a few weeks ago actually put an end to Barcelona's ambitions to participate in the next stage of the race. The Catalans may perform better than under Ronald Koeman, but it is hard to believe that they are capable of beating Bayern at the Allianz Arena. Moreover, this season in attack Bavarians have even better performance than in previous years. Even if the match starts more calmly, at some point Barcelona will have to open up and the Bayern strikers will take advantage.
