The Germans’ domination over Barca continues.
Despite in essence only being a pre-season friendly, the match between Bayern Munich and Barcelona was highly anticipated for several reasons.
Firstly, Barca head coach of four years Pep Guardiola would be returning to face his former employers for the first time as the new manager of Bayern.
The talented Spaniard had a year out from coaching in 2012/13, after leading the Catalans to three La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues whilst at the Nou Camp.
Plus there was also a score to settle for Barca, with the Spanish champions being unceremoniously dumped out of the top European competition in the semi-finals last campaign, at the hands of a 7-0 aggregate victory for Bayern.
However, revenge was not quite so sweet as an under-strength Barca side – missing the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Neymar – were defeated 2-0 by the Bundesliga champions through goals from Phillip Lahm and Mario Mandzukic.
