The Estadio da Luz in Lisbon is supposed to send goosebumps to Barcelona after tonight.
Last summer she lost 2-8 to Bayern Munich, perhaps the starting point in her complete demise.
Also tonight the lights went out in Barcelona. This time after just 2’13: Nunez took the lead in a flash for Red Devil Vertonghen’s Benfica.
Barcelona managed to force chances, but wrapped them around the neck and Benfica was a lifesaver in the team with Otamendi, among others.
After the break, Barcelona crawled through a small hole again: after a foul by Ter Stegen, Nunez kicked the post.
Barca coach Koeman did what he could with a few substitutions, but sadly saw how the final stage still had two Portuguese goals to offer.
Are his days really numbered? After this second 3-0 defeat, Barcelona stopped at the tail of Group E.
Ronald Koeman’s chair seems to be rocking a bit after tonight. After the new fall, the Dutchman continues to defend himself.
“I feel the support of the players, but I don’t know what the club thinks. Everyone knows our problems: we won’t win the Champions League.”
“But it’s easy to criticize this team. You can’t make a comparison with Barcelona in recent years.”
