Barcelona v Bay­ern Mu­nich Where the game will be won and lost

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport Football -

Can Bay­ern cut off Messi’s sup­ply line?

If Lionel Messi sees much of the ball around the box, Bay­ern will be in trou­ble. The key is to pre­vent him from re­ceiv­ing it in dan­ger ar­eas and force him deep.

Barca must stop Thi­ago

Bay­ern will fancy their chances if Thi­ago Al­can­tara, a prod­uct of the Barcelona acad­emy, is able to con­trol the game from mid­field. Barcelona must dis­rupt his pass­ing rhythm.

Bus­quets key in at­tack and de­fence

Sergio Bus­quets’s pass­ing from mid­field will be cru­cial in get­ting Barca up the pitch. He will also need to be aware of the roam­ing threat of Thomas Muller.
