Bayern Munich hit an incredible 8-2 Champions League quarter-final, and Barcelona’s poor performance in the 2019-20 season is even more frustrating. The pressured, energetic and ruthless German champion Team Bayern was at a different level from their Spanish opponent Barca.
They scored four times in the first half, added a quartet in the second half as they thrashed Barcelona 8-2. Barca’s too many mistakes on the defensive ended with a historic and embarrassing defeat record in UEFA.
Thomas Müller scored the first goal for Munich. He opened at the top of the box hit a bouncing ball and passed Goal Keeper Ter Stegen. Barcelona was absolutely shocked by that.
Humiliation as Bayern Munich put eight past Barcelona in Champions League
Although David Alaba’s own goal helped Spanish team Barcelona, Bayern showed no mercy to the Catalans. They added three more from Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry and Thomas Müller which made 4-1 for Bayern at the break.
Barcelona showed some fighting spirit early in the second half, with Luis Suarez’s 4-2 in 57 minutes. However, the German side once again showed why they received such a high rating and why the problem still revolved around Barcelona, where they showd incredible display in the last 30 minutes.
Joshua Kimmich tapped home for Munich from an outrageous run by Alphonso Davies to make it 5-2 for them. Polish superstar Lewandowski finally got himself on the score sheet with a close range header on 82 minutes.
With Barcelona praying for the final whistle in the last ten minutes, their own loaned midfielder Philip Coutinho came from bench to trouble them. The former Liverpool man added the goal and rewrite the score to 7-2 in the 85th minute. In the 89th minute Barcelona’s defence in the 6-yard box, once again allowed him to add one more to his tally and he made it 8-2.
