In minute 14, due to a mistake by Neuer in the opening game, it was Dayot Upamecano the one who saved Bayern by the ball from Robert Lewandowski when he would finish on target.
Four minutes later, Lewandowski himself missed a great opportunity on the counter by finishing just over the goal against Neuer.
In the 21st minute, Neuer parried a header from Lewandowski from close range, in the 26th minute Raphinha shot slightly wide from outside the penalty area.
Later, while Barcelona kept the initiative, Bayern were a bit shaken up with punctual moves in the opposite area.
In minute 27, the first arrival came with a shot by Mazraoui that was no problem for Marc André Ter Stegen. In minute 28, Koude cut a dangerous cross from Jamal Musiala in the small area.
The most dangerous situation was another center of Musiala in which Thomas Müller and Sadio Mané got in each other’s way looking for the shot.
Despite these attacking attempts, it was Barcelona that controlled the game and were also very attentive defensively in the center of the field not to give space to Bayern’s transitions.
The match resembled Barcelona and in the second half in just three minutes Bayern turned the course of the match.
In the beginning everything seemed to stay the same. The first thing that happened after the players came back from the dressing room was a Barcelona recovery that ended in a slightly deflected shot from Raphinha.
However, then came Bayern’s first free chance, a shot by Leon Goretzka that changed Ter Stegen’s direction for a corner. And in the first corner attack in favor of Bayern, Joshua Kimmich’s center found Lucas Hernández who scored with a header from within the small area.
It was the 51st minute and the second goal came in the 54th. Leroy Sané scored after a great play and pass from Musiala, with a shot at the far post in the area.
The two goals left Barcelona somewhat paralyzed at first and there was a pressure phase from Bayern, but then Xavi Hernandez’s men returned to show the previous trend.
Bayern put up more resistance and were more astute since the entry of Goretzka, but Barcelona continued to play their game and had a great opportunity 63 minutes into the game with a shot at the post by Pedri after a wall with Lewandowski.
