Fans Think There's A Thomas Muller Look Alike Facing Barcelona In The Europa League

Jesper Lindstrom is being called a 'Thomas Muller regen' for looking a bit like the Bayern Munich star, and Barcelona will be hoping that's where the comparisons end.

Muller is one of the best players of his generation and has helped Bayern be one of Europe's best teams in the past decade, playing 613 times for his club so far.

The forward has an unmistakable look and loves giving a visceral scream when he scores, or the team wins, and it has always seemed pretty unique to him.

However, now it looks like the 32-year-old has a doppelganger in the Bundesliga, in the shape of Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Lindstrom.

The 22-year-old impressed over the previous two seasons with Brondby and earned himself a move to the Bundesliga in the summer.

He signed for Frankfurt for a reported €7 million and had impressed in his short time in Germany so far, scoring four goals in 15 league games.

The pictures of Lindstrom celebrating come from Thursday night, as Frankfurt drew 1-1 with Real Betis to secure their place in the quarter finals of the Europa League.

They've drawn against Barcelona in the last eight and the Spanish giants will be hoping that the comparisons with Muller end at the looks.

Barca tend to be Muller's favourite victims, with the 32-year-old having scored eight times in seven games against them in the Champions League, winning six of those games.

Muller scored twice in the 8-2 embarrassment in 2020 and in both the group games this season, as the Catalan giants were knocked down to the Europa League from the Champions League group stages.

Speaking at the time, Muller gave a typically brutal assessment of Xavi's team, claiming they couldn't live with the intensity of top teams.
