Advantage Barcelona? Why there will be no fans in their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich

Barcelona face must win scenario

Barcelona go into their final Champions league game, a trip to the Allianz Arena, knowing that they will most likely need a result against Bayern Munich.

Their poor results against Benfica and Dynamo Kyiv have left the club in second place in the group by the skin of their teeth, but with their hardest match left to play.

Currently two point ahead of Benfica, Xavi and co. will need to win should Benfica also win, because of their inferior head to head record. In the off chance that Benfica do not beat Dynamo Kyiv, who have to this point picked up just one point (ironically, against Benfica on match day one), Barcelona would be through.

It is in their hands, but just.

Barcelona handed empty stadium advantage

Now, however, Barcelona have been handed a minute advantage, with COVID-19 restrictions meaning that they will be playing in an empty Allianz arena come next week.

This means that the Bavarian atmosphere that typically greets the opposition will not be present as Barcelona aim to pick up the three points against an already qualified Bayern side that could field a weakened XI.

Those of a Blaugrana persuasion will certainly be hoping that the dominos continue to fall in their favour, instead of the club falling into the Europa League.
