It was a night of horror for Barcelona as they were made to beg for mercy by German football giant Bayern Munich. They had not only humiliated the Spanish club but used their magnificent performance to reply Barcelona player Arturo Vidal that the three years he had spent at Bayern Munich before moving to Barcelona was not enough to know all about the club’s superiority in the German league. Earlier in the day Arturo Vidal had given warning statements ahead of their clash that his team Barcelona was the best in the world. Barcelona coach Quique Setien also downplayed Bayern’s striker Robert Lewandowski form as not in the league of star player Lionel Messi.
Bayern opened the scoring spree with a sensational goal with Thomas Muller in the 4th minute before an own goal from Bayern player David Alaba in the 7th minute got Barcelona back into the game. Bayern was not disturbed but instead used that goal as an opportunity to unleash mayhem on Barcelona with a lovely Ivan Perisci strike in 21st minute. Barely six minutes had Serge Gnaby added his own before Thomas Muller brought the first half to a close with a goal in 41st minute.
On resumption of the game in the second half, Barcelona pulled back one goal through Louis Suarez in 57th minute. However it turned out to be a big mistake on the part of Barcelona as it resulted to more demolition with Joshua Kimmich scoring a goal six minutes later. To prove coach Quique wrong that he was in a better form, Robert Lewandoski added to the tally in the 82nd minute. To finally lay the game to rest, on loan Barcelona player Philippe Coutinho, inflicted more pains with his 85th and 89th double.
To save the Spanish team from further punishment, the game was stopped at the 90th minute. The two minutes added time was unused. It was a night of terror for Barcelona and this might be the last match for coach Quique Setien with the Spanish giants who were brought down to their knees.
