Champions League: Bayern Munich’s stadium not a ‘house of horror’ – Xavi
Despite some significant losses at the Allianz Arena in recent years, Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has insisted that his team is not entering a "house of horror. "
On Tuesday, the LaLiga juggernauts face Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
In the group stage of last season, Barca was defeated 3-0 in Munich, and they have lost all six times they have faced German opposition.
They have drawn twice and lost four times, for an aggregate score of 14-4.
The 8-2 humiliation in the quarter-final in Lisbon in 2020 still remains fresh in my memory too.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a house of horror, it’s Bayern Munich,” Xavi replied when asked about Barcelona’s poor record in Munich at a news conference on Monday.
“I’ve experienced both sides of the coin, beating them and losing to them. I know [recent results have not been favourable], but football is cyclical.
“It’s true we have never won here, which shows the difficulty of this week’s game. But we are in good form and we are excited for Tuesday.”
