For their latest meeting, Canada international Davies helped Bayern Munich keep a clean sheet on the way to a 2-0 home win over Barcelona. Barcelona dominated first half proceedings, but they could not turn the dominance into goals as the two teams ended the first 45 minutes without a goal. However, it took just five minutes for Bayern Munich to take the lead thanks to the header from Lucas Hernandez. The Frenchman scored the opener off the corner kick from German international Joshua Kimmich. Four minutes later, German star Sane doubled the lead for the Bavarian giants. Sane made it two goals in two Champions League group stage games this season with the second Bayern Munich goal to seal the win over Barcelona.
Thanks to the win over the Catalan giants, Bayern Munich are the new team at the top of Group C. They usurped the Catalan giants at the Group C summit as a result of the victory at the Allianz Arena.
