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.

Let’s take a look at how each Bayern Munich player fared during the contest against the Catalan club.

GK: Sven Ulreich – 7/10

The German keeper didn’t have a single save to make in the game and secured an easy clean sheet on the road.

RB: Noussair Mazraoui – 7/10

He earned the ball back twice and didn’t do much wrong on the defensive end of the field. Mazraoui also made one key chance in the final third.

CB: Dayot Upamecano – 7/10

Upamecano kept things solid at the back during his time on the field. He was substituted just after the hour mark.

CB: Matthijs de Ligt – 8/10

The Dutch central defender was a rock at the back and was responsible for making some timely interceptions for his side. He will be happy with the clean sheet tonight.
