The next chapter in the ever-growing rivalry between Bayern Munich and Barcelona sees the pair square off in the Champions League group stage on Tuesday.

Bayern have been dominant in this fixture's recent history, with 2020's 8-2 mauling still fresh in the memory, but they come into this one on a rough run of form which has seen them draw three Bundesliga games in a row.

On the other hand, Barcelona have won five on the bounce thanks to the help of former foe Robert Lewandowski, who swapped the Allianz Arena for Camp Nou this summer and already has nine goals in six games.

Here's all you need to know about this one.

Barcelona team news

Xavi has named a 25-man squad for the game which includes utility man Sergi Roberto, who missed Saturday's eventful victory over Cadiz with a minor injury problem.

The Cadiz game saw Xavi make a number of changes himself, but with no new injury issues to contend with, he could bring back a more familiar lineup this time around.

Barcelona Starting 11 (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Garcia, Balde; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele
Bench: Pena, Tenas, Christensen, Pique, Alba, Alonso, Bellerin, De Jong, Torres, Memphis, Kessie, Fati

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona score prediction

The safe prediction for this one is that it is going to be a very entertaining watch.

Barcelona are flying, with the entire squad playing well and Lewandowski doing the business up top, while Bayern have lacked that ruthless touch following the Pole's exit and are about as vulnerable as they have been in years... which isn't really saying much.

If any team knows how to stop Lewandowski, it's Bayern, but that doesn't mean they'll be able to. Expect a narrow affair, but we're tipping Barcelona to edge it.

Prediction: Bayern Munich 1-2 Barcelona
