Barcelona will play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Friday.
Bayern Munich which is arguably the best team in Europe right now, won a domestic double and dispatched Chelsea with ease in their round-of-16 tie.
Hansi Flick’s side also have a striker in Robert Lewandowski who many believe is the best player in the planet right now.
By this match, “[Lionel] Messi faces his successor as the best player in the world: Robert Lewandowski. He is the best player, not just the best forward,” Matthaus told Bild ahead of the quarter-finals.

While Bayern have been firing on all cylinders, it’s been a difficult season in Catalonia.
Barcelona stuttered following the resumption of football in Spain and handed the La Liga title to Real Madrid.
They were also beaten in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.
Messi has been exceptional once again but he’s been forced to do much of the work on his own.
This isn’t a great Barcelona side. Take Messi out and it’s up for debate whether they would have reached the last eight.
