Did Benfica give the decisive boost to Ronald Koeman in Barcelona? | UEFA Champions League 2021/2022

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.”
