What a sad night for Football Club Barcelona, both players and fans around the world were stunned last night after our elimination from the Champions League to the Europa League was confirmed. Barcelona was trashed by Bayern Munich with three goals to nothing at the Spotify Camp Nou last night, it was a match I was looking forward to, and hoped Barcelona could win even if having the three points meant nothing but a win over Bayern Munich would have been perfect.
Barcelona's faith was already decided earlier in a match between Inter Milan and Plzen, Barcelona would have had a chance if Plzen had won or drawn against Inter Milan but it wasn't the case as Inter Milan showed no mercy and trashed Plzen by four goals to nothing, and I think the win against Plzen gave the Barcelona players less motivation to beat Bayern Munich last night because there was no point winning against Bayern when they will not still qualify for the round of sixteen.
Barcelona faced Bayern Munich in the last three years of the champions league and Bayern Munich has shown no mercy and has continued to humiliate Barcelona when both teams come face to face with each other, the worst encounter was in 2020 in the round of sixteen Bayern Munich thrashed Barcelona 8-2 at the Camp Nou, it was a horrible day for fans and players.
Last night, Bayern Munich took an early lead in the 10th minute of the first half, Serge Gnabry played a through ball to Sadio Mane, and the Senegalese star made an impressive run down the box and took a shot, Ter Stegen was unable to stop the ball as it enters the goalposts and Mane gave Bayern their first lead of the night.
Bayern Munich got their second goal in the 31st minute, and Serge Gnabry again played through ball but this time he found Choupo-Moting who wasted no time and played the ball between the goalkeeper's legs into the goalposts, extending Bayern's lead to two goals. Bayern sealed the deal at 90+5 minutes in the second half, Serge Gnabry tried playing a volley but the ball bounced off and reached his teammate, Pavard wasted no time and played the ball into the goalpost and made the scoreline 3-0.
The 90 minutes were up, it was sad and the Barcelona players looked devastated but there was still a little joy as some Barcelona fans kept singing and cheering up the Barcelona players. It's a sad ending but another story begins, the road to Europa League. Xavi and the squad must try to make their impact in the competition, this year they made it into the quarter-final, and next year they have to put in more effort to give themself a shot for the title.
Win or lose my love for Barcelona will remain strong and I am sure they will come back stronger than ever. So guys thanks once again for stopping by and have a nice day ahead.
