In advance of Tuesday’s Champions League Group C match, Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann will choose which central defenders will take on Barcelona attacker Robert Lewandowski. Check out complete details about it below.

Bayern’s defence readies for Lewandowski’s return from Barcelona to Munich

The forward from Poland joined the Spanish team in July after signing a deal worth 45 million euros ($45.63 million), He spent eight years with Bayern, during which time he scored 344 goals in 375 appearances. Even though he had a contract with Bayern until 2023, the second-highest scorer in Bundesliga history was forced to leave the club. He stated that the German champions “wanted to create a justification why they may sell me to another team since before it was difficult to explain perhaps to the supporters and for that they should have sold him to another club.”

Before the two parties partially repaired their relationship, Bayern said the issue was brought on by the player who requested to leave despite having a contract. Nagelsmann said at a news conference, “I am certain on many positions, but not the ones in central defence yet.

Lucas Hernandez, Matthijs de Ligt, and Dayot Upamecano are his options; the latter has a minor advantage.

Nagelsmann asserted that Lewandowski, who is 34 years old, is still performing at a high level and predicted that he will continue to average 40 goals every season. In five games for Barca so far this season, the striker has six LaLiga goals.

Bayern, which last week won 2-0 away at Inter Milan in their Champions League group opener, has now dropped to third place after drawing its previous three Bundesliga games. Bayern was disappointed to draw 2-2 with VfB Stuttgart at home on Saturday after giving up a late penalty equaliser.
