The German club have won every match so far and will aim to join Liverpool this season with six wins from six. And despite having secured their spot in the next round, Bayern’s manager Julian Nagelsmann says the win is still the target.
He said: “We’re happy that we’re going into this game having already secured top spot. Nevertheless, it’s still an important game. The Champions League is always something special, and we want to be fair to the rest of the teams in the group.
“Barça still have world-class players. They are under pressure in the table and have to win, and they will give everything to do that. It’s not about knocking them out, but about the three points for us. I still see them as candidates for the title.”
