Spanish side Barcelona have failed to book a place in the semi-finals of the 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League after they were humiliated by Bayern Munich.
The Catalonia side has in recent times not made it to the finals to talk of winning it. All their previous three appearances in the knockout stages did not go smoothly for them.
AS Roma eliminated Barcelona in their 3:0 victory at the Stadio Olimpico in 2018. A year after, Liverpool trashed them 4:0 at Anfield to overturn Barcelona’s initial 3:0 win at camp Nou. Also, this year has not been a good one for Barcelona. They have lost their chance of avoiding a trophy-less season as they lost 8:2 to German champions Bayern Munich.
This 8:2 defeat is the most humiliating defeat in the UEFA Champions League knock out stage history. This is the first time in many years that both Ronaldo and Messi have missed out on the UCL semi-finals.
Luis Suarez was on the score sheet for the Catalans with his classic goal. Thomas Muller and Philippe Coutinho struck twice, with Robert Lewandowski, Joshua Kimmich, Ivan Perisic, and Serge Gnabry all on the score sheet for Bayern.
In a previous meeting between Barcelona and Bayern Munich in 2013, the German champions recorded a 7:0 aggregate win over the Spanish side which shocked the entire football world.
In conclusion, the UEFA Champions League is in great shape after the resumption.
