The 2021-22 season of European club football’s great UEFA Champions League is starting tonight. Bayern Munich and Barcelona will face each other in the big match of Group E tonight.

Exactly 2 years ago, in the 2019-20 season, Leo Messi defeated Suarez’s then-full-fledged Barcelona 6-2 in the quarter-finals of Bayern Munich. This time Barcelona will play their first match in the group stage at home against the German giants.

After Luis Suarez and Leo Messi, Antoine Griezmann has also left Barcelona. The new-look of Barcelona’s is now the biggest star Memphis Depay. The Catalan club lost a lot of strength after Leo Messi. The danger is exacerbated by injuries to Sergio Aguero, Osman Dembele, Ansu Fati, and Martin Brathwaite. But even then the roar of revenge was in the voice of the Barca coach Ronald Koeman.

Ronald Koeman noted that those painful memories still haunt Barca fans. Several players from that match are still in the team who suffered a lot that night. Bayern Munich are strong but we want to take revenge in this match.
