Thomas Muller sends message to Lewy after UCL draw pits Bayern up against Barca

Thomas Muller had a message for Robert Lewandowski as and Munich were drawn together in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League 2022-23.

The two clubs played one of the competition’s most iconic matches in the 2019-20 edition of the Champions League. Barcelona were hammered 8-2 in the quarterfinals by Bayern, which was contested in a single match due to delays caused by the pandemic.
