Bayern Munich with a historic 8-2 humiliated Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Müller and Coutinho scored two goals for the Blaugrana, with Perisic, Gnabry, Kimmich and Lewandowski also scoring
The defeat, that's for sure, will not go unnoticed and in Barcelona there is already talk of revolutions in sight.
“I don't know – says Gerard Piqué – if this is the end of a cycle, I don't know how to categorize this defeat, I just know that we have hit rock bottom and we have to make a change in all respects.
We have reached a point where we are not pursuing a precise path and the results prove it.
For some years, regardless of the players and coaches, we have not been able to compete in Europe and we are struggling so much in La Liga as well.
This is the harsh reality, there is not much more to do and what happened today is unacceptable. A shame, there is a need for a structural change.
We all have to question ourselves, me first. If more is needed, I can go too ”.
The words of coach Quique Setien
“I have only been here for 8 months and if Piqué says there is a need for a change he says it because he knows there is something behind it.
If I expect exemption after this defeat? It's difficult to talk about these situations, but it won't be up to me. We will certainly need to reflect considering the importance of the problem.
This was a humbling night for the club.
Barcelona are a great club and cannot bear such a defeat. Now there is a lot of frustration but we need to find solutions and make decisions thinking about the future ”. (Source: La Gazzetta dello Sport ).
