Bayern Munich vs Barcelona: preview

Barcelona must beat group winners Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday if they’re to be certain of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League.

After a 0-0 draw with Benfica last time out in Europe’s top club competition, Barça go into the final round of Group E games sitting second, two points ahead of the Portuguese side, who host Dynamo Kiev.

If Benfica defeat the Ukrainians, Barça must win in Germany to avoid coming third and dropping into the Europa League. A draw will not be enough for the LaLiga side if Benfica win, as Jorge Jesus' men have the head-to-head advantage and will take second spot if the two teams finish level on points.

Barça are guaranteed to go through to the last 16, whatever their result against Bayern, if Benfica fail to beat Kiev.

The Blaugrana, who suffered their first defeat under new boss Xavi Hernández when they lost 1-0 at home to Real Betis in LaLiga on Saturday, last failed to qualify from the Champions League group stage in the 2000/01 season.
