Barcelona Will End Up Playing In The Europa League If They Are Not Careful [OPINION]

The Spanish press seems to differ with the view that there isstill hope for Barcelona after describing Barcelona as "terrible" and "weak" in the aftermath of their dismal performance. The top page of Marca has a photo of Lewandowski and Muller, the two goal scorers, giving a high-five, with the caption 'Poor Barcelona.' AS also chose a photo of the in-form Lewandowski, this time with the striker appearing to console Pique. 'Another bath,' says the headline.

This refers to Barcelona's latest dismal performance against Bayern Munich, who were lauded as being "again a step above" their opponents. Meanwhile, Mundo Deportivo shows a photo of Marc-Andre ter Stegen surrendering one of the three goals, along with Pique's remarks, 'This is what there is.' The hosts were chastised for being 'impotent,' while Bayern demonstrated their superiority with a victory that put them in first place in the group. For the first time in club history, Barcelona has been forced to suffer three straight defeats at home in European play, a much-desired first.

Before kick-off, a banner saying 'Koeman Out' was erected, a clear indicator of rising fan displeasure, but it was quickly removed by club personnel. Pique was 'upset' after hearing jeers aimed towards Sergi Roberto from portions of the 40,000-strong audience. 'The whistling directed towards Sergi Roberto are infuriating,' he stated after the game.

Ronald Koeman says Barça can cause Bayern problems

It was a good decision for the Barcelona board to release Messi because had they held on to him, this encounter with Bayern Munich would have spoiled his career records like the last time they did when Barcelona lost to the German giants 8-2. It seems like Barcelona will soon be like Arsenal where winning won't be in their blood anymore and many teams will pick up three points from them. With the performance we saw, it is safe to say that Barcelona will not be winning the Champions League. If they carry on at this rate they might play in the Europa league.
