Bayern win against Inter, Barca save honor in Plzen

In group C, the evening of Tuesday evening was not the subject of an excessive stake, the 4 places of the group having already been fixed since the 5th day. But despite 7 changes from his big win against Barca (3-0) last week, Bayern lined up a 6th victory in as many matches thanks to his success against Inter (2-0).

Three tricolors (Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Kingsley Coman) started the game, but it was Benjamin Pavard who stood out by opening the scoring from a corner. With an uncrossed head, the defender deceived André Onana (32nd) and allowed his club to establish its domination over its evening opponents. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting then nailed the game by clearing the skylight with a straight strike (72nd).

The meager consolation of Barça in Pilsen

In the other game of the group, the changes made were also numerous. Barça had nothing to play for and preserved its executives after the rout against Bayern last week (3-0). The Catalans prevailed 4-2 with a win that served as scant consolation. Ousmane Dembélé, Frenkie de Jong and Marc-André Ter Stegen were on the bench. Xavi took the opportunity to test an attacking trio made up of Ansu Fati, Raphinha, and Ferran Torres. The latter also scored a double (44, 53rd).

The Spanish striker followed in the footsteps of Marco Alonso, an opportunist at the start of the match (6th). Plzen had the ball confiscated for 90 minutes, but the Czechs got several chances, including a crossbar from Chory (20th). The striker was also very active, scoring twice. He first transformed a penalty by taking the goalkeeper on the wrong foot (50th), then headed a cross from the left (63rd). Pablo Torre (19) however showered the hopes of the premises with a powerful strike under the bar (75th). Barça will therefore play the Europa League play-offs.
