Thomas Muller has resumed his usual trolling with Barcelona as he did last season after Bayern Eliminated them from the Champions League in 2022/23.
We now know who Bayern Munich will play in the Champions League group stages this year after a painfully drawn-out procedure. In Group C, they will play FC Barcelona, Inter Milan, and Viktoria Plzen.
Julian Nagelsmann will be determined to show that his squad can still compete in the CL after last year’s painful early exit against Villarreal. The goal for Bayern this season is to replicate their domestic performances against Europe’s top teams after a solid start in the Bundesliga.
The group stage is crucial for this since it allows you to practice your strategies without the pressure of a knockout match.
The group stages from last season will be repeated when facing Barca, but with an intriguing twist: Robert Lewandowski will now be playing for his former foes. He had a strong habit of scoring against his former teams in Germany. Hence, Bayern would hope that Lewandowski stops doing that in the future since the Polish striker is condemned to face his former team this season.
Inter are a fascinating team to pick because they are unquestionably not weak. With Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martnez heading the line, Simone Inzaghi’s team might provide Nagelsmann with some problems. Viktoria Plzen completes the group, providing Julian Nagelsmann and his boys with a formidable test.
Thomas Muller – who is regarded as Barcelona’s nemesis took to his Twitter account to show his gladness for the Group Stage Draw of the Champions League.
The German said: “What a nice draw for football fans, Lewandowski see you soon in Munich, Mitrovic, Lets go, lets rock the Champions League season.”
He also added that: “What a terrific story that we’re going to meet Barcelona with Robert Lewandowski. For me, a super group with super teams.
“There will be some terrific Champions League nights for the football fans. But one thing is also clear: we’ll have to do our homework to reach the round of 16.”
The remaining two teams in Group C are Inter Milan and Viktoria Plzen.
Haaland, who was sold for €60 million to join City in June, might return to Dortmund since the two teams were placed in the same Group G as FC Copenhagen and Sevilla.
Thomas Muller V Barcelona in 2021/22 Season
Last season’s Champions League encounter between Bayern and FC Barcelona was played in less than ideal conditions, with driving sleet and no spectators.
Thomas Müller, who was desperate for more goals against his favorite opponents in Europe’s top club championship, obviously didn’t care about it at all.
Just a few minutes after kickoff, the Allianz Arena was obviously filled with the sound of “Make it snappy, make it snappy!”
The team was not transitioning swiftly enough in the eyes of the Bavarian man. And although Müller’s advice at that specific time did not eventually succeed, something seemed to resonate with his team members.
Bayern then made sure the 32-year-old scored a very memorable goal by playing forward quickly.
In the 34th minute, Müller was in the ideal location at the ideal time to receive a cross from Robert Lewandowski.
To start the scoring, he looped the ball in wonderfully. He scored eight of his 50 Champions League goals against Barcelona, giving him the record for most goals scored against a single team.
