Wed 15 September 2021 | 7:55

The Blaugrana went against Bayern Munich tonight and during their last encounter, they suffered an 8-2 loss at the hands of the Bundesliga side in the Champions League’s quarter-final. Their life after Lionel Messi has had them suffer a 3-0 defeat at Camp Nou, as they couldn’t compete.

Ronald Koeman

put Marc-Andre ter Stegen as the goalkeeper, and there was a back three of Eric Garcia, Gerard Pique and Ronald Araujo. The wing-backs were Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets was with Pedri and Frenkie de Jong in midfield, whereas Memphis Depay and Luuk de Jong led the line.

The Champions League anthem was whistled by

Barcelona

supporters before the game, but their side failed to deliver.

Thomas Mueller

met the back of the net 33 minutes into the game, and

Robert Lewandowski

scored their second and third goal, to further secure his side’s victory.

We are not among the favourites but still nothing happens, look at Chelsea last season,”

 Pique said post-match.

“This game teaches us that Bayern are superior, but very young players have come out who must be the future of this club. We are Barcelona and I am sure that we will end up competing.

“Sergi Roberto’s whistles hurt,” Pique continued, about the substitution. “He’s a spectacular person and he loves the club like no other. I’d like to remind people that he’s not a winger, he’s a midfielder. He makes the sacrifice of adapting to that position. I’m sorry for the whistles but people are free to express.”
