Joan Laporta tips Barcelona to beat Bayern Munich in Champions League

    Barcelona president Joan Laporta is confident that Xavi’s side can ensure progression to the Champions League knockout stages by beating Bayern Munich next month.

    The Blaugrana’s European campaign has been underwhelming so far with humbling defeats to Bayern and Benfica on the first two matchdays getting them off to the worst possible start.

    Since then they have beaten Group E basement-dwellers Dynamo Kyiv home and away before playing well but drawing against Benfica at Camp Nou.

    That result saw them remain in second place but they still face an uphill struggle to qualify for the knockout stages. They have just a two-point lead over Benfica in third, who play Dynamo at home on matchday six and also have the edge in head-to-head record.

    This means that unless the Eagles lose to the Ukrainian side, Barcelona must beat Bayern at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday 8 December.
