Some years ago it was impossible to imagine that Barcelona could be out in the group stage of Champions League. However, the economic crisis of the Catalan team also affected the entire sports area. Today the culés are not protagonists in LaLiga and their qualification to eighth in the European tournament is in danger.
It is very far from the first places. This 2021, it is being a nightmare for the Blaugrana team. And it could be enlarged if it does not manage to qualify for the round of 16 of the Champions League.
Unlike other years where Barcelona would have already secured his place in the next round of the Champions League, now their numbers are worrying. He has only added 7 points in 5 games played. Unthinkable numbers.

Despite those numbers, Barcelona is second in their group. The leader is Bayern Munich who has a perfect score. The German team is the rival that the Catalan team must win yes or yes to qualify without depending on other results.
Barcelona with a victory against Bayern Munich will ensure their pass to the round of 16. However, the statistics play against the Spanish team. In addition, the present of both teams is totally different.
Bayer Munich continues to conquer the world with its game and lethality; while Barcelona tries to recover with the arrival of Xavi Hernández on the bench. This will be the most important game for the Catalans so far this season.
In these last two years, Barcelona received 11 goals from Bayern Munich. He was barely able to score 2 goals: 8-2 in the quarterfinals in the 2019-20 season and 3-0 in the match played at Camp Nou this season.
|14-09-21||Barcelona 0-3 Bayern||Group stage|
|14-08-20||Barcelona 2-8 Bayern||Quarter finals|
|12-05-15||Bayern 3-2 Barcelona||Semifinals|
|06-05-15||Barceona 3-0 Bayern||Semifinals|
A draw or lose to Bayern would make Barcelona dependent on other results. Benfica from Portugal is third with 5 points. So the Catalans have to wait for Dinamo Kiev to achieve the feat and rescue at least one point in their visit to the Portuguese team.
If Benfica manages to win and Barcelona equals in Germany. The classification will be for the Portuguese team. Both teams would reach 8 points, but Barza would have a worse goal difference. In football, anything can happen.
