Barcelona suffered the worst defeat in the club’s Champions League history after an abject 8-2 surrender at the hands of Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of UCL 2019-20. Barcelona, who came into the quarter-final clash unbeaten in their last five games, were left in shock after the humiliation Bayern handed them in 90 minutes. The Catalan side, five-time winners of the UCL, were 4-1 down in the first half and conceded four more in the final 45 minutes. Lionel Messi and Barcelona fans were shell-shocked after such an embarrassment in Europe’s top competition. Barcelona Have Sacked Manager Quique Setien After the 8–2 Humiliation Against Bayern Munich in UEFA Champions League 2019–20 Quarter-Final, Say Reports.

Thomas Muller opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute for Bayern and although David Alaba’s own goal levelled the score three minutes later, Bayern had raced 4- ahead within the opening half-hour. Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry got on the score sheet while Muller added another. Luis Suarez made it 4-2 at the start of the second half but it only invited more attacks from the German team. Joshua Kimmich made it 5 before Philippe Coutinho came off the bench to assist Robert Lewandowski and also put the match to bed with two strikes in four minutes.

It was the first time in Champions League history knockouts that a team have conceded eight goals in a single match. Bayern had beat Barcelona 7-0 in 2013 but over two legs. In Lisbon on Friday, it was only humiliation and the club was soon trolled for the disastrous result. Fans also sympathised with Messi for dragging the club too long.

This was also the first time since 2007-08 that Barcelona ends their campaign without a single trophy. The Champions League was their final chance at silverware this season and they return empty-handed. Barcelona were beaten by Real Madrid in the La Liga title race, lost the Spanish Super cup semi-final to Atletico Madrid and were defeated by Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals before this loss.
