Lothar Matthäus once again underestimates Lionel Messi and Barcelona. Lewandowski is a better player than Messi and downplays the threat Barça poses.
Matthaus can’t seem to keep FC Barcelona out of his mouth at the moment. The former Bayern man, who already took aim at Barça after they beat Chelsea, has doubled-down on his belief that Lewandowski is now a better player than Leo Messi.
“Messi will come up against his successor as the best player in football: Robert Lewandowski. He’s the best player, not just the best striker,” added Matthaus.
“The Barça of today isn’t the same as before. They’ve got Messi, of course. He’s someone who is always capable of doing something special but he alone isn’t enough to beat this Bayern. Barça don’t scare me.”
Only three days ago Matthaus claimed Bayern were clearly superior to Barça ahead of the Champions League clash.
“Naturally, Barça have the quality to produce their best in a one-off match. But I think Bayern have to make a lot of mistakes and do a lot of things wrong to lose against this Barcelona side,” he told Sky TV.
