Bayern Munich and Barcelona will kick off their campaigns in a Group E encounter at Camp Nou.

Barcelona is entering the Champions League for the first time without the presence of Lionel Messi for the very first time in over a decade-and-a-half.

"They`ve no longer got someone as extravagant as Messi, but they have other players who can make a difference. We are prepared for everything," Goal.com quoted Nagelsmann as saying.

"I`m not of the opinion that they are a lot worse off now. Whether we are favourites or not favourites is always more of a media topic. Two world clubs are meeting. On the one hand, the form on the day will decide, but on the other hand, there is motivation - and that one will be extremely high with us," he added.

Bayern Munich is placed alongside Barcelona, Benfica and Dynamo Kyiv in Group E of the Champions League.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich will lock horns against each other later today.
