Barcelona, the club that has dominated world football for nearly a decade with its tried and true style of patiently looking for a gap in the opponent´s defense, is taking on Bayern, the team that, in the German Bundesliga at least, has demonstrated to be capable of scoring in more ways than one: set-pieces, crosses from the wing and quick counter-attacks as well as Barca-style build-ups. The question is now whether Bayern can show the same class against truly world-class opposition.
Barcelona have failed to impress in the big games this season, except for that one miraculous comeback against AC Milan – which ended 4-0 – a perfect revenge for the 4-0 defeat Barca suffered in 1994. Can Barca pull off another masterclass against Bayern – the club that only 4 years ago, they defeated with 4-0?
