A wonderful morning to all our readers out there as we check out the result of the football match played yesterday Friday August 14, 2020
You must have heard about it, Barcelona’s defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon, Portugal.
It was much more than thrashing, it was more of humiliation and yes, Pique was right after the match, Barcelona have hit rock bottom.
Bayern Munich showed no mercy against a lacklustre Barcelona team as they beat Quique Setien’s side 8-2 on the night. The Catalans were clueless, allowing the Bavarians to ride them with eight different goals.
Thomas Muller and Philippe Coutinho both scored a brace, Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry, Robert Lewandowski, and Joshua Kimmich also scored one each. David Alaba scored an own goal while Luis Suarez was Barcelona’s second goalscorer.
Bayern Munich moved into the semi-final where they will play against either Lyon or Manchester City who go head-to-head today. The semi-final match is slated for Wednesday, August 19.
It was a very difficult night for Barcelona and it’s certain that in a few days, a lot of decisions will be made, most likely starting with the manager Setien who could lose his job. A major rebuild is needed within the club and the earlier the better it gets started.
Bayern are on course for glory, trying to win a treble this season after already claiming the Bundesliga title and the DFB-Pokal. It will be a big surprise if they eventually fail to lift the Champions League this season.
Result in full…
Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich
