The crowd at Camp Nou witnessed their team trampled by the German Champion Bayern Munich ended their team’s campaign at the Champions League. Although Barca had already been eliminated before heading into this matchup, the fans and the players still had the hope of finishing the tournament on a high note, after Inter routed Viktoria PIzen. Instead, Barcelona suffered a humiliating defeat against Bayern Munich with the score of 3-0 led by Sadio Mane, Choupo-Moting, and Pavard.

It was a darkest night for Xavi and his squad as they did not give a bit of competition for the German side in front of 84,000 fans who watched the last game of Barca in this year’s Champions League. Sadio Mane took advantage of Barcelona’s unmotivated status as Gnabry slid and cut through the defenders before passing it to the Senegalese star Sadio Mane who swept Ter Stegen to sink the ball on to the net.
Choupo-Moting extends the gap to two at the 31st minute mark of the match with another assist from Gnabry who runs at the Barca’s defense before passing it to Coupo-Moting who buried the strike past Ter Stegen for the second goal of Bayern Munich. More impressive in this game for Bayern is that they were missing their key players in Neuer and Sane – but it did not bother the German Champion as Julian Naggelsmann trusted his players to keep the 100% record of their side in the Champions League so far.
The half-time ended by Bayern Munich. It causes stress to live audiences and fans as many did not continue watching the match and exit the arena. In the second half, we did not see much action as both teams continued to sneak an attack and tighten their defense. Barcelona had a chance in the second half as Bayern regressed a bit, but also the home squad regressed. Benjamin Pavard sealed the final blow, the goodbye kiss to Barcelona during the 90 minute extended time to giveBayern 3-0 lead and a win to remain their record in the group stage, perfect.
During the post-interview, Manager Xavi addresses that knowing they are knocked out of the game before the match even started really affected the players’ performances. “Being knocked out before the game affected us.”
“You learn through taking the hits, and this is a big hit,” Xavi said.
This Champions League campaign is life-lesson for the young Barcelona squad and will take it till their next campaign and will make sure to take note of their mistakes and bring their best and perform better, possibly next year.
“Hope is the last thing you lose,” Xavi had said in a post-game interview.
