It was a very terrible day in Spain as the hope of retaining the Uefa Champions League rested on the shoulders of just one team Real Madrid. The headlines were crazy as it reads complete failure” “penance” “night of terror.” The headlines were unforgiving in Spain.
Spanish Clubs Suffer Early Knock out from Champions League
Barcelona crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage for the second year running. Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are also out of the Champions League. The three clubs are out of the tournament even though they all still have a game at hand.
Barca head Xavi and president Joan Laporta were keen to play down that the five-time Champions League winners would enter Europe’s second-tier competition once again. But 19-year-old midfielder Pedri was more critical, claiming Barcelona “doesn’t deserve to be in the Champions League”. He said: “For me, it’s a failure,” he added.
