Barca once again disgraced themselves!

Barca once again disgraced themselves!

In the Champions League group stage matchday one, Barcelona couldn’t oppose anything to Bayern Munich and lost 0:3.

In the match against Bayern, Ronald Koeman came out to play with the 3-5-2 formation, trying to somehow make up for the problems in defense by having five nominal defenders. Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba were constantly involved in the attack and returned to the defense. They were the only links through which the team tried to attack due to the fact that the guests' defense stretched across the entire width of the pitch.

But the problem is that all Barcelona’s attempts to attack ended with banal curls in search of Luuk de Jong and nothing more. Depay in the first half could not create anything other than set pieces. Therefore, he was virtually excluded from the game.

At the same time, Bayern came out to play very compact in the midfield. Sane constantly came back for the ball when necessary, Musiala put pressure on the Barcelona defenders along with Goretzka and Lewandowski. The pressure of the German team forced ter Stegen to constantly clear the ball in search of tall de Jong, who often lost aerial duels.

But whatever the problems of Barcelona in attack are, as five shots per match and not a single one on target is a sheer nightmare, there was no less horror in defense. In the 34th minute, no one advanced to Thomas Muller 20 meters away from the goal, and he scored the first goal through a rebound from Araujo. Ten minutes into of the second half, the attack of Bayern shot the goal of ter Stegen, Musiala hit the post and Lewandowski was the first to finish, who doubled the score.

Koeman tried to redeem himself by letting out Gavi and Demir with the expectation that the youth would give movement in the attack. But, as it seems to me, the emphasis was placed on the products only for the sake of the word, like he gave them a chance. In general, the game pattern has changed a little, only the speed of movement on the other side has increased. Although Bayern themselves waited for moments for counterattacks and allowed it to happen. In the 85 minute, Lewandowski scored a brace and buried Barcelona's hopes along with talk of revenge and changes over the past year. A well-deserved triumph for Bayern and Barcelona's disgraceful home game, even without considering the result.
