Barcelona is touched and sunk in the Champions League after losing to Benfica. Not only did Bayern Munich beat the Catalans on the opening day, but the Lisbon team did the same at the Estádio Da Luz. The match leaves Koeman on the wire. [Narración y estadísticas: Benfica 3-0 Barcelona]
Barcelona is still in the doldrums. The last victory in La Liga seemed to be a new beginning for the Catalans, who saw the return of Ansu Fati as their lifeline. And although the young player aims to be one of the world leaders of the future, he is not Messi. Neither it is nor should it be, but that is something they must also understand at Can Barça. Putting too many stones in your backpack may be the biggest mistake right now.
The game was very difficult for the Catalans from the beginning. After two minutes, Darwin Núñez already put Benfica ahead. The Estádio Da Luz fell apart with both of their team early. A Piqué came out of the play and soon after saw the yellow card. From there to the bench. Koeman’s pulse did not tremble when it came to taking him off the field to put a youth squad in his place.
After the break it seemed that Barcelona were looking more hard for the rival goal, but Rafa Silva put things in their place with the second of the night for Benfica. The finishing touch for Koeman’s team came with Dest’s penalty, which the VAR warned the referee about. From eleven meters, Darwin Núñez signed his personal double and the third for his own.
Barcelona remains at the bottom of their group with zero points out of six possible. The situation is very complicated for a Barça team that must add three at a time if they do not want to remain composed and without the Champions League in December. In addition, knowing that they still have to re-measure the almighty Bayern who put a hand to Dynamo Kiev at the Allianz Arena.
