Elimination and defeat. The night could not have been more tragic for Xavi's Barça. Neither classification nor pride to rescue against Baryern, the true black beast of this team. One more piece of the Barça horror museum, which lately is full of unfortunate works.
The Spanish and Catalan sports press has spared no negative qualifiers to describe what happened yesterday. There are those who point to "sadness" by the way in which the elimination came. Others, such as Mundo Deportivo, criticize the team's ineffectiveness against the Bavarian team.
The most critical are the newspapers published in Barcelona. Thus, Mundo Deportivo titled "Ciao. Kaputt". And he adds that "Barça falls to the Europa League for the second consecutive season, a victim of its own ineffectiveness." In addition, he criticizes that Xavi's team did not know how to "measure up against Bayern at the Camp Nou".
The newspaper Sport, for its part, headlines "Failure consummated" on its cover. "Barça lost the saddest game," criticizes this newspaper, adding that the Barça team "was not able to shoot between the three sticks."
From Madrid, Xavi Hernández's project is shot directly at and what happened this year is compared with the previous one. "This Is What It Is, Chapter 2." This is how the newspaper Marca refers to Barça's elimination, alluding to the fact that the level of the team is not enough to achieve any achievement in the Champions League. Still in Madrid, the newspaper AS headlines night of terror and explains that the azulgranas were "devastated by Bayern".
