Both Bayern Munich and Barcelona started their latest European campaigns with wins on matchday 1. The German side got an impressive 0-2 victory over Inter Milan at the San Siro, while the Catalan club swept aside Viktoria Plzen 5-1.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men have made an unbeaten, albeit rather inconsistent, start to the season in the Bundesliga. Alongside a 1-6 win over Eintracht Frankfurt and a 0-7 demolition of Bochum, there have been disappointing draws with Borussia Monchengladbach, Union Berlin and Stuttgart.

Barca are also unbeaten in La Liga so far, winning four of their five opening games and only dropping points in a draw with Rayo Vallecano in their season opener. They will bring a familiar face to the Allianz Arena today: Robert Lewandowski scored a staggering 253 goals in 238 appearances for Bayern before moving to Spain during the summer. He has already netted five times in six appearances for his new team. 

Lewandowski’s former employers will be hoping their big-name summer signing Sadio Mane can do the job for them. He has made a strong start to life in Germany, scoring five goals in his first nine competitive appearances since leaving Liverpool. 

Here's how they line up:

Bayern Munich: Neuer, Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies, Kimmich, Sabitzer, Sane, Muller, Musiala, Mane.

Barcelona: ter Stegen, Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Alonso, Gavi, Busquets, Gonzalez, Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele.

It’s a heavyweight European clash in a highly competitive group. Find out who gets the crucial points by watching the Bayern Munich vs Barcelona live stream.
