Barcelona Demolished in Bavaria

The game is on for the best European club of 2013 and there are only four teams left to fight for that glory and honor to hold the Champions League trophy comes 25 May at Wembley Stadium. And right now, Bayern Munich is facing Barca (Europe’s best club in recent years) at the Allianz Arena in the first leg of the semi-finals. Barcelona’s demolition of Milan at Nou Camp in the round of 16 is still fresh from everyone’s memory and was considered as one of the greatest comeback after being two goals down in the first leg.

As I am reading the live comments of Bayern Munich and Barca’s match, I never expect Barcelona to be dominated at their own game although we have seen the best team in Europe already but this time it is in Germany. Bayern has already been crowned Bundesliga champions and also already in the finals of the German Cup and it seems that they are not finished yet and they want to become the first Bundesliga team to win a treble. At the moment, they are on course of achieving such fate.

I have said that because Bayern just finished dismantling favorites Barca with a stunning 4-0 win and it was Barcelona’s worst defeat in the Champions League. Although they previously came back from a 0-2 loss at San Siro but history is not on their side as no teams who lost four goals in the first leg still gone to the next round. With that alone, it looks like it’s impossible for the Catalan superstars to overturn the huge deficit at Camp Nou on the first of May yet it is also very interesting to know if they can recover from a four-goal defeat.

I doubt it and probably will surely not.
