The Champions League semi-finals will be devoid of the presence of both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the first time since 2005

The startling statistic was confirmed after Barcelona's humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.

Ronaldo's Juventus, meanwhile, were knocked out by Lyon at the last-16 stage.

bad, the both of them have really tried, the most consistent players ever in ucl and make them both rest abeg..
but pls mr o.p dont u think you can still pass your message in this post without including that 2-8 score board, what you sre doing isnt fair knowing that the pics is giving us bad memories about last nite.
barca were soo poor and were destroyed last nite, dey would sack the coach n dts normal wich isnt fair because all dt barca players were bad even my goat..
the painful thing is dt, its the last game of the season and the pains would last longer and also coutinho that was on loan from barca have the guts to join disgracing barca, dts wickedness

Power has change hands.... "The End of An Era"


It's time we start celebrating the likes of Robert Lewandoski, Neymar Jr, Haageland, Our very own Riyad Mahrez and Kylian Mbappe...

These guys have done marvelously well for their teams respectively, it's best we celebrate them especially the beast called Lewandoski who for me has been prolific all season and my Player of the year.

Damnnnnn niggarrr
Isoright....I dey reason am say the rivalry between Messi and Ronaldo is beyond human comprehension... because most times when Ronaldo exit Messi follows or when Messi exits then Ronaldo follows

As an ardent supporter of Barcelona and lover of Messi
I was aware that the defeat of yesterday is gonna happen..
Am not a biased Moda fuckkker...i say it the way it is..

Have been saying it...
Immediately after that Napoli's game.....this was exactly what i said

I just dey pity Barcelona

If them repeat wetin them play against Napoli then i can bet my balls they are going out when they face Bayern Munich
Suarez was acting like actor instead of him to be serious
Falling and rolling on the floor for every little touch
Greizmann is no where to be found....
They better be serious or lewandowski will score them every minute
I shock when that guy score five goals within nine minutes
Muller own even worse.....you nor go see am for inside field but the next thing you go hear from commentator na

Goal! Goal! Thomas muller

embarassed

I'm a confirm Ronaldo fan as Real Madrid fan, but honest be told, both of them are joy to watch.

It's a pity that both if them couldn't go far this season in champions league.

My advice is for Messi to leave Barcelona and try and redeem his image and play another league.

Barcelona are currently living in their oast glory.

You just have to give it to those Bayern players, the players gave their all, A very decent teamwork, pace and control, Goal poachers. This has to be the best team in Europe since the Barcelona team of 2011/2012.

Barca's collapse yesterday was a systemic one that had been long-coming. The real problem was about the way Barca played which got them exposed against a rampaging Bayern Munich side. BARCA play without PACE and ENERGY while just relying on technical ability. It is therefore no surprise that an energetic, precise team is able to shred their lethargic defence apart with ease yet and yet again. Yes, maybe Messi might have hustled a bit more to score one goal, but there was absolutely nothing he could have done to minimize the humiliation with the lethargic way the team was set-up.

Barca need to bring in ATHLETIC and technically gifted players to rebuild the team. And that entire defence needs to be overhauled as they defend like school boys. The team lacks intensity and any opponent that does a bit of strong pressing (Liverpool, Man city, Madridi) will take this current barca team to the cleaners, Messi notwithstanding.

This match has just shown that a working team system beats individual prowess. Coutinho that has not been particularly brilliant even at Bayern was able to score 2 goals and had 1 assist. This shows that it was more about the team set-up than the individual players. Kudos to the Bayern coach. A working system makes an average player look good e.g Wijnaldum, Henderson, while an ineffective set-up can make a very good player look bad e.g Frenkie De Jong, Ter Stegen today.

These guys are coming back better next season!!! Especially Ronaldo. I think it’s time for Messi to lookout for new challenges elsewhere. That Barca team is just like arsenal without Messi.

Without Ronaldo they've been to 2 finals and 1 semi final in then last 5 years.

With Ronaldo they have not crossed the quarter finals.

WTF you talking about lady?


As for Messi he's older and slower and his team is now made of 33 year olds and more.

We've had our own beautiful moments and unforgettable good memories as a club. Yesterday was a dark day for Barcelona players, coaching crew, management and her fans...It is what it is. . FOOTBALL.

We move on from there.

We are FCBarcelona.
