For all of Bayern Munich's recent troubles in the Bundesliga this season, there is always comfort for them in facing FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
The Bavarians continued their supremacy over the Catalan outfit with a 2-0 victory at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening, thanks to strikes from Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane.
However, new signing Sadio Mane struggled to impose his presence in the game and looked sluggish throughout.
The Senegal international was eventually subbed off by Julian Nagelsmann in the 70th minute for Serge Gnabry, as he failed to register a single shot against Xavi Hernandez's side.

The 2022 African Player of the Year has now extended his goal drought to four games, and some fans believe the 30-year-old is simply not the right fit for Bayern tactically.
Mané is one of the worst players on the pitch fam we bought this guy for the big games apparently.
@chiddyafc opined Mane's signing has not worked for the Bavarians:
Mane's been a horrid signing for Bayern so far
@nasirofLFC believes the Senegalese is missing his former club:
It's about time we admit it, Mane is missing Liverpool
@DerKaiserBM added that Mane is struggling to adapt to Nagelsmann's tactics:
It’s clear to me Mane doesn’t understand his role in attack to perfection.
And I think it’s not his fault entirely. Lackluster first half, tons of individual mistakes. Same performance Union and Gladbach had us losing
