Bayern Munich icon Thomas Muller had an unlikely birthday this year as he became the victim of a house robbery while the footballer was playing against Barcelona in their Champions League clash on Tuesday. While he was busy helping his team on the pitch, his house was reportedly robbed.

As per reports, local police have claimed that jewelry, valuables, and cash in the six-digit range were stolen from the Bayern Munich player’s home on Tuesday. An investigation in regards to the same has already started. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich hosted Barcelona at the Allianz Arena for their Champions League Group C clash on Tuesday.

It was a close contest as both the teams were trading punches till the end. Although Barca had few close opportunities to win the game, eventually it was Bavarians who came out on top by securing a 2-0 win on the night. Leroy Sane and Lucas Hernandez were the two scorers in the game to give Bayern Munich a 2-0 victory.

Soon after the final whistle, Bayern Munich's captain learnt of the incident, and he reportedly went home directly. Muller also skipped the post-game press conference. The German club had announced that the sudden departure of their player was due to a 'private appointment.' Earlier, Bayern Munich star had picked new FC Barcelona signing Lewandowski over Real Madrid's Karim Benzema as his preferred center-forward. 

Muller was recently asked various questions on ESPN's You Have to Answer quiz where he had asked one of the two options. In response, Muller picked his former teammate Lewandowski over Benzema.

"I have to go for Lewandowski, but Benzema had a very good season, he's a very good player," he said in his response. Notably, Muller and Lewandowski were teammates for eight season and won numerous honours like eight Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokals and the 2020 UEFA Champions League title. 

Lewandowski moved to FC Barcelona in the recently concluded summer transfer window. The Polish striker continued his top-form in Spain and has already netted nine goals and provided two assists in just six appearances across all competitions.
