FC Barcelona’s Nightmare: Champions League Dreams Dashed After Chaos On and Off the Field

Oh dear. What a messed up evening for FC Barcelona and their fans…

After last week’s 3-2 win at Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League, a draw in the second leg was enough for Barça to advance.

Instead, they lose 4-1 and, like in the past four years, do not make it to the semi-finals of the premier class. And the first big mistake happened before kick-off…

Barcelona ultras attack their own team bus!

What was going on? In the evening, the Barça bus with the players makes its way to the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, where the club is currently playing due to the renovation work at Camp Nou. Another vehicle with employees and supervisors is also on the way to the replacement stadium. Problem: The bus looks quite similar to PSG’s due to the similar club colors.

Barcelona supporters set off pyros, thick smoke and fog hangs on the streets. Because of the poor visibility, the fans think they can attack the opponent’s bus and thus annoy their players. It’s stupid, however, that according to various media reports it wasn’t the PSG bus but that of their own club…

Even after kick-off, things didn’t go well for the La Liga runners-up. Raphinha quickly takes the lead (12th), but then Araujo flies (29th) and Barça reels. Coach Xavi: “For me the red card is far too much. After that it was a different game. It’s very difficult with ten men.” Even before the break, ex-Barcelona star Dembélé equalized (40th), Vitinha (54th) and Mbappé (61st/89th) made everything clear.
