These Liverpool fans insist they deserve credit for Barcelona demise after latest CL humiliation

1 month ago   |   By CaughtOffside

When Barcelona took to the field against Bayern Munich on Friday night for their Champions League quarter-final, perhaps the ghosts of Roma and Liverpool were still in the backs of their minds.
How else do you explain a capitulation to the extent where eight goals are conceded?
Fans of the Reds believe they know the answer, and it lies in the Catalans 4-0 humiliation at Anfield just over a year ago.
On that occasion, Jurgen Klopp's side had miraculously come back from a 3-0 first-leg defeat at the Camp Nou, with Barcelona not having any answer to Liverpool's dogged and sharp pressing...

Imperious Bayern put Barcelona to the sword in spectacular 8-2 victory

1 month ago   |   By Team Talk

Bayern Munich produced a performance for the ages as the German champions justified their tag as favourites to thrash Barcelona 8-2 in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Entering the night as favourites, it took just three minutes for Bayern to live up to the tag.
A free-flowing move picked out Thomas Muller on the edge of the box who played a neat one-two with Robert Lewandowski. Muller latched onto the return ball and calmly slotted home past Marc-Andre ter-Stegen to put Bayern quickly one up.
The scores were levelled mere minutes later in truly remarkable circumstances. Jordi Alba's...

Video: Wonderful Davies assist sees Kimmich hit Bayern's fifth against Barcelona

1 month ago   |   By CaughtOffside

Although Barcelona had just scored a second goal to give themselves a glimmer of hope in their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich, normal order was soon restored.
The Catalans had been well beaten for the most part and were already 4-2 up before the Bavarian's left-back, Alphonso Davies, decided to put on the afterburners.
His run saw him zip past the entire Barcelona defence and square the ball for Joshua Kimmich who, stationed right in front of the goal, couldn't miss.
“He's just turned Nelson Semedo inside out! An experienced right-back... Whoops!”
Wow, Alphonso Davies...

Video: Gnabry rifles Bayern Munich 3-1 ahead against Barcelona

1 month ago   |   By CaughtOffside

Every time Bayern Munich went forward in their Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona they looked like they would score.
The blaugranes defence were at sixes and sevens every time the Bavarians bore down on their goal, and before the half-hour they were already 2-1 down.
Things would quickly get worse, however, as Serge Gnabry was played in and allowed to rifle home Bayern's third.
Barcelona simply had no answer to the consistent raiding and they'd have it all to do with an hour left to play.

Video: David Alaba's spectacular own goal gifts Barcelona an equaliser

1 month ago   |   By CaughtOffside

Although the Champions League quarter-final between Barcelona and Bayern Munich was just a few minutes old, the Bavarians appeared to be in complete control after going ahead through a Thomas Muller goal.
However, with Bayern playing a very high line, Barca were able to get in behind with almost every attack.
On one of those occasions a ball was sent into the box in hope more than expectation, and in trying to clear the chance, David Alaba only succeeded in slicing the ball over Manuel Neuer and into his own net.

You can email scott.murray theguardian.com 1.27pm BST Barcelona and Bayern Munich have met three times before at the business end of the European Cup. Each time, the result has been emphatic.
