Thomas Muller opened the scoring in the first half at the Camp Nou before the in-form Robert Lewandowski doubled Bayern’s lead in the second half.
Lewandowski completed his brace in the 85th minute as Bayern comfortably secured all three points in their opening Champions League clash.
Barcelona’s opening Group E defeat in the Champions League has left many fans pointing out how far the “mighty have fallen.”
One Twitter user posted: “So sad how far Barcelona have fallen... they look like kids compared to Bayern in their own house.”
Someone else wrote: “Wow, how far have Barcelona fallen. They are awful [and] they remind me of Arsenal.”
A third fan tweeted: “This has to be the most insipid I've ever seen Barcelona in my life. How the mighty have fallen. Doesn't look much different to Arsenal, TBH.”
And a fourth added: “Barcelona went to a back three to defend against Bayern Munich in their own backyard and they're currently losing. How the mighty [have] fallen.”
While a fifth said: “Can't believe just how far and how fast Barcelona have fallen, they are a shadow of the team of a few years ago, so sad.”

The Spanish club saw Barcelona legend Lionel Messi make his shock exit in the summer after La Liga scuppered their new contract for him.
Emerson Royal was also sold to Tottenham on deadline day, despite Barcelona signing him from Real Betis in June after triggering his buy-back clause.
Antoine Griezmann made his sensational return to Atletico Madrid in the summer on a loan deal, with Ronald Koeman initially tipping him to fill the void left behind by Messi at Barcelona.
Barcelona landed the likes of Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia on free transfers in the summer, along with signing Luuk de Jong on a season-long loan from Sevilla.
Barcelona players like Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba have agreed to take pay cuts amid the club’s financial struggles.
