Pep Guardiola: Bayern Munich boss watched his team beat former club Barcelona

Goals by Philipp Lahm and Mario Mandzukic either side of half-time were enough to give the European Champions another pre-season victory.

Guardiola believes the performance has set Bayern up well ahead of Saturday's German Super Cup clash with Borussia Dortmund, in a repeat of May's Champions League final.

"It was a good preparation for Borussia Dortmund," said Guardiola

"Barcelona are always a good team and they were a good test for us. We had our chances and we have to improve our finishing."

Meanwhile, Guardiola admits it was a treat to face the club he will always be associated with following his glittering success at the Nou Camp.

"It was a very special game for me," Guardiola added. "I spent my whole life as a player and coach of Barcelona.

"I'm very happy now and have nothing to complain about. I have been given a

very good side with Bayern."
