talked to

about the Catalans’ performance.

I expected something more from Barcelona, but I have to say that Bayern is the worst team to face in the first group stage game,”

the former defender said.

“However, It’s been like this for the last two years. Last season, the Camp Nou was up for grabs for everybody. Juventus and PSG won there easily.”

Capello, who coached Milan, Real Madrid and England before, was not satisfied with their display and believes Ronald Koeman’s side lack quality, particularly up front.

Barcelona used to have so much quality that to play there would give you a headache,”

he said.

“Last night, they failed to register a single shot on target, there was the commitment, but not enough quality to create trouble for Bayern. It will be really, really hard.

“If you don’t have a shot on target, it means you don’t have the physical and technical strength to create trouble at this level,”

the former coach added.

Barcelona have earned seven points out of their three La Liga clashes in the 2021-22 season, finding the back of the net seven times and conceding four goals. Lionel Messi’s departure has really affected the club, who are struggling financially.
