History repeated itself in the opening day of the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League. Bayern Munich proved to be too powerful for Barcelona and put three past them to claim all three points in the first matchday of the group stage.
The Bundesliga giants humilliated the Catalans again, just like they did last year in the historic 8-2 quarterfinal clash. Ronald Koeman's side headed into this game aiming to prove everyone wrong but it ended in complete disappointment.
Julian Nagelsmann's boys have taken control of the match at ease and went on to secure a comfortable victory to begin their campaign on the right foot. Barca, on the other hand, have plenty of work to do. Unsurprisingly, fans were all over the Internet with funny memes.

On paper, Bayern Munich were clearly favorites to pick up the triumph. Nevertheless, it was obviously interesting to see how Barcelona performed against one of the mightiest teams in Europe right now.
Unfortunately, the Cules' aspirations didn't last long as Thomas Muller's rocket in the first half seemed to be fatal. To make things worse, Robert Lewandowski netted twice to secure Bayern's massive win.
Many changes have been made over the last few years in Barcelona but none of them seem to help. Bayern showed they are at a complete different level and that's why Barca miss Lionel Messi more than ever.
