Bayern Munich locked horns with Barcelona at the Nou Camp earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a victory on their travels. The Bavarian giants made an excellent start to the game and got themselves ahead in the tenth minute courtesy of Sadio Mane’s strike. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting doubled Bayern’s lead in the 31st minute as Julian Nagelsmann’s men led 2-0 at half-time.
Benjamin Pavard put the icing on the cake when he added another goal in injury time as the contest finished 3-0 in favour of the German club.
