the Confrontation between Bayern and Barcelona in the quarterfinals of the many experts called an early finish. Met the team, which recently won the trophy, which feature some of the best players in the world – Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski. Yes, the problem of the Catalans is well known: they failed the end of the season, inside the club is not going smoothly, and his coach Quique setien of the stars of “blue garnet” is not particularly favor. But what happens is – was not expected.
Bayern, frankly, humiliated Barcelona. What is most interesting – the final score 8:2 in favor of Bayern could have been bigger, they realize at least half of their moments.
it was Painful to watch Messi. The Argentine actually has a few seasons drags on a team, but the last time Barcelona won the Champions League already in 2015. Since then, real Madrid three times took the trophy, “Liverpool” for the first time in 13 years, won it, and Barca can not do.
After the sixth goal Bayern Messi for a few seconds as if turned off from the game and stood in the middle of the field, looking off into the distance. I wonder what he was thinking at this moment. Maybe the fact that his time, the legendary time at Barcelona has come to an end? According to foreign media reports, if the leadership of the “blue garnet” will not happen fundamental changes, Messi is ready to leave. It is noteworthy that Lionel recently bought an apartment in Milan. But it was reported that inter are ready to offer him a lot of money in order to get in the current transfer window.
But while Messi has not publicly talked about their plans. Unlike another veteran and leader of “Barcelona” Gerard Pique. After the match with Bayern, he admitted he was ready to leave the club.
a Dreadful game, awful feeling. It’s a shame. And with us this is not the first time. The desired reaction, the necessary changes. I’m not talking about the coach or the players, but no one is untouchable. I’m ready to go if you need fresh blood and another speaker, told the Peak.
but Bayern cannot be stopped now. Hard to imagine who or what can oppose such a team. Just think: in nine games this Champions League, the Germans have scored 39 goals! Moreover, the opponents among them were other clubs such as Tottenham, Chelsea, Barcelona.
the Hero of the match with the Catalans was Thomas Muller who scored twice and gave an assist.
– it is Difficult to explain what happened. We are in incredible shape and today was a fun day. Grateful for the prize of player of the match, but I’m not here for that. We arrived in Munich for the trophy. And not leaving without it, î said Muller.
In the semi-final will be a remake of a decade ago: match Bayern – Lyon. The French followed Juventus sensationally knocked out one of the best English teams of recent years – “Manchester city” (3:1).
Amazing delo: “city” every year buys beginners for a lot of money, won all the trophies in England, scored a lot of goals, but for the third consecutive season under Josep Guardiola can not pass the quarter-final stage of the Champions League.
We created more chances and disappointed. One day city breaks in the semifinals. The team deserved it. But while we need to relax a bit and prepare for the new season, said Guardiola.
“lion” – the main opening of the current Champions League. It will be interesting to recall that the French team played in a group with Zenit. Petrograders scored four points in two matches: won at home and played a draw in France. But the Russian club prematurely left the competition, not even once in the playoffs of the Europa League, while Lyon claims to be the first in history a triumph in the Champions League.
Another surprise of the season was the “Leipzig”. The club began its existence in 2009, first came in the top four of the main European competition. Moreover, in the 1/4 finals, the Germans suddenly knocked Atletico Madrid (2:1), who defeated the then Champions Liverpool.
it Remains to add that for the release of the final “Leipzig” will compete with “Paris Saint-Germain.” The match will take place on August 18 and a day later, “Bavaria” will meet with Lyon. The final is scheduled for the 23rd number.
