Barcelona Knocking at Bayern Munich Headquarters, Robert Lewandowski finally opens his voice

SportBarcelona Knocking at Bayern Munich Headquarters, Robert Lewandowski finally opens his voice – Robert Lewandowski finally spoke about the defeat suffered by Barcelona when he visited Bayern Munich’s headquarters, Allianz Arena, on Wednesday (14/9/2022). In this match, Barca was forced to surrender 0-2 by FC Hollywood.

The continuation of the Champions League 2022/2023 is also Lewandowski’s first reunion since leaving Munich. The Polish player came as an opponent after being recruited by Barcelona in the summer transfer market.

Barcelona actually didn’t look bad in this game. A number of options even had time to get past Barca.

Unfortunately, the Blaugrana’s poor finishing kept the hosts’ goal safe until the end of the match. Lewandowski, who has scored 6 goals in La Liga with Barcelona, ​​is not touched either. A golden opportunity in front of goal was even wasted because his shot bounced over the crossbar.

Instead, the host Bayern Munich seemed more effective in the second half. FC Hollywood eventually led 2-0 through goals from Lucas Hernandez (50′) and Leroy Sane (54′). This score held until the final whistle.

This defeat did not only disappoint Barcelona as a whole. Lewandowski also considered his visit to the former headquarters a tough day, as revealed through his Instagram account.

“It was a very tough day. Now it’s time to focus on the future,” Lewandowski said, as he uploaded a photo of him clapping the hands of the fans present at the Allianz Arena Stadium that afternoon.

Lewandowski’s return to the Allianz Arena is actually quite sensational. Understandably, the 34-year-old player was once an idol there. During his seven years with Bayern Munich, Lewandowski spearheaded FC Hollywood with 238 goals from 253 games.

Together with Lewandowski, Bayern Munich also won various titles, including 8 Bundesliga trophies, 3 DFB Pokal and a Champions League. Additionally, Lewandowski was also awarded the Ballon d’Or while still in Munich.

With a string of achievements he has achieved, it is only natural that Lewandowski’s move has worried the Allianz Arena crowd. Because the former Borussia Dortmund player’s sharpness now turns to their goal.

Lewandowski as it is known decided to leave last summer. The tall player chose to join Barcelona after going through a series of emotionally draining dramas.

Lewandowski was brought to Camp Nou for a fair price of £45 million plus bonuses. He was then tied to a contract for 4 years until 2026. With Barca, Lewandowski has scored 6 goals in La Liga.

Former Bayern team-mate Thomas Muller has no doubts about Lewandowski’s sharpness. Before the match, he said that Lewandowski is a great player on and off the pitch.

According to Muller, Lewandowski’s departure to Barcelona was a loss for Munich. However, Mueller is also convinced that the toughness of the other players will close the gap left by Lewandowski.

“We lost quality, but all players have different qualities. So, we lost quality, but we also gained new quality. Everything changed a little bit,” Muller told TNT Brasil.

“Lewandowski is a great player, a great person and I just hope we can show him tomorrow that his departure was a mistake.” Meanwhile, Barcelona started the game well. Pedri Gonzalez almost put Barca ahead in eight minutes. But his shot can still be met by Manuel Neuer with his feet.

Six minutes later, Neuer almost brought disaster for Munich. He passed the wrong one so it was taken by Robert Lewandowski. Lucky Dayot Upamecano was able to close Lewandowski’s movement.

Another golden opportunity came to Barcelona in the 18th minute when Lewandowski received a cross from Gavi, Lewandowski failed to break into the earlier goal. Although dealing with Neuer, Lewandowski’s shot went high.

Lewandowski again missed opportunities in the middle of the first half. This time it was Marcos Alonso’s bait that failed to convert. Neuer can still counter it.

Munich could only get the first opportunity in the 27th minute. For a week, right-back Noussair Mazraoui could still be secured by goalkeeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen. No goals were scored in the first half.
