Poland national team talisman Robert Lewandowski failed to add to his group stage tally when his Bayern Munich side welcomed struggling Barcelona to the Allianz Arena for their final Champions League game in Group E. The Poland international didn’t score as Bayern Munich thrashed Barcelona 3-0 at home to finish the group stage with a perfect record.



Robert Lewandowski is the star player for the Poland senior national team and he had nine goals in his first five group games this season before the Barcelona game. The ex-Borussia Dortmund hitman was unable to get to double figure for goals in the group stage after he failed to find the back of the net. Bayern Munich got their three goals through club legend Thomas Mueller, Leroy Sane and young German midfielder Jamal Musiala.

Poland international Lewandowski didn’t score during the Barcelona game, but he was able to provide the assist for the goal that started the scoring for his team on 34 minutes. His cross was headed into the back of the net by Mueller.

Bayern Munich showed their supremacy over Barcelona with two goals in nine first half minutes. Ex-Manchester City winger Leroy Sane produced a long range shot two minutes from the half-time interval to double the hosts lead as the Bavarian giants went into the break with two goals on board.

Young midfielder Jamal Musiala recently finished in the top three of the best players under the age of 21 alongside injured Barcelona midfielder Pedri and Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham and he showed his quality with the third goal two minutes after the hour mark.

With the result from the latest meeting between Bayern Munich and Barcelona, the Spanish team won’t be in the Champions League knockout stage draw after they failed to make the top two in Group E. The away defeat to German champions Bayern Munich ensured that Barcelona finished in third to bag an Europa League playoff spot.
