You need not pinch your self. Severely, that did truly simply occur.

Barcelona fell to their heaviest European defeat of all time on Friday night as Bayern Munich stormed to a terrifyingly dominant 8-2 victory, in a sport which felt eerily much like an grownup taking a again backyard kickabout at a five-year-old’s celebration far too severely.

8-2. Let’s repeat that: 8-2.

The loopy factor about this sport is that it truly began pretty evenly. Barcelona might have netted 5 within the first ten minutes.

They compelled David Alaba into an personal purpose, hit the submit and had a Luis Súarez shot properly saved by Manuel Neuer, and it regarded like we might be in for a 10-10 sort of sport.

Bayern determined to carry up their facet of the cut price, tearing Barça’s defence open with terrorising ease.

Thomas Müller, Ivan Perišić and Serge Gnabry have been all on the rating sheet within the first half, with Müller discovering the again of the online twice to make sure that this tie was over at half time. Even at 4-1, this regarded embarrassing for Barcelona.

If solely we knew what was coming.

The worst was but to return for Barça. Joshua Kimmich fired dwelling after a run from Alphonso Davies which can very properly power Nélson Semedo into an early retirement, earlier than Robert Lewandowski beat the offside lure to go dwelling.

And the worst was nonetheless but to return.

Off the bench got here Philippe Coutinho – the identical Coutinho who joined Barça for £142m, was deemed to be a flop and shipped out on mortgage to Bayern – and he scored. Twice. You may’t make these items up.

There’s numerous issues which will not be forgotten shortly from this sport. We’ll be speaking about it for an extended, very long time.

Nonetheless, the very best factor to return out of the entire thing?

This tweet.

Actually three minutes earlier than the beating started. Comedic timing at its most interesting.
