Football News : No Messi, No Griezmann - no problem! Barca against Bayern in Group E

Barcelona’s ability to compete in Europe without Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann will be put to the test when it hosts the team that dealt the Spanish side its most humiliating defeat in recent memory. The 8-2 shellacking Bayern Munich handed Barcelona in the 2020 Champions League quarterfinals marked the beginning of the end of the Messi era. The financial troubles that kept Barcelona from resigning Messi also forced them to loan Griezmann back to Atletico Madrid. Ronald Koeman has to find a way to account for the 58 goals the two forwards scored last season. That task now falls to Memphis Depay, who has made a promising start at Camp Nou with two goals in three Spanish league matches. Koeman should also have Spain standout Pedri Gonzalez back in his lineup after the young midfielder rested for two weeks after playing both the European Championship and the Tokyo Olympics.
