Bayern Munich are still the best when they beat rivals Barcelona to 8-2 in just one knockout match. Although he has created incredible results in the Champions League in the past half decade.
Statistics in the European arena show that the team that wins Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the knockout phase usually has a great chance of winning the championship later. Barcelona took the throne in 1996 UEFA Cup and Champions League after overcoming Barca.
While the last two times Messi’s team was crowned in the Champions League, there was Bayern’s silhouette. Bayern Munich turned the heroic story of Da Luz into a nightmare for Barcelona. He shot the opponent’s net 8 times, becoming the first team in Champions League history to create this feat in just one match in the knockout round.
A real shocking result to football fans around the world. The famous newspaper Mundo Deportivo is Barcelona’s “historic defeat in the Champions League”.
In particular, the author Roger Torello emphasized: “For the third consecutive season, Barcelona has had disappointing results in the Champions League after losing to AS Roma, Liverpool and now Bayern Munich. This failure is still heavy. Than the previous 2 sts and the score 2-8 has never appeared for Barcelona in the history of the tournament”.
The Marca Daily newspaper with an article by Fernando Carnerero noted that this failure was the result of a series of “confusing” decisions made by Barcelona during the past year. The same newspaper stated that Coach Setien will certainly leave and there will be many people at the Nou Camp following him. They are from the board members to the players.
Having been awarded without a goal, Messi and his teammates played better and created countless chances to score in the following minutes. Only regret that he did not make good use of the finishing stage. In the 27th and 31st consecutive minutes, Gnabry and Mueller scored against a very weak Barcelona player.
