Barça suffers biggest European defeat ever: Bayern sink their ship with no title

A historic humiliation. Barcelona was completely ridiculed by Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and went into the boat with unseen 2-8 figures.

It is the biggest European defeat ever for the Catalans — an overview of all historical figure records that have been killed.

In its history, Barcelona only swallowed 8 goals or more five times. The last time was in 1946, no less than 84 years ago

4,440 official matches in Barca history. Only six times conceded 8 + goals:

  • 12-1 vs. Athletic in the League (1931)
  • 8-2 vs. Real Madrid in the League (1935)
  • 11-1 vs. Sevilla in the League (1940)
  • 11-1 vs. Real Madrid in the Cup (1943)
  • 8-0 vs. Sevilla in Copa (1946)
  • 8-2 vs. Bayern (2020)

Barcelona have only been able to win once in the last four seasons while displacing the knockout stages of the Champions League

  • Juve 3-0 Barça
  • Chelsea 1-1 Barça
  • Roma 3-0 Barça
  • Lyon 0-0 Barça
  • United 0-1 Barça
  • Liverpool 4-0 Barça

No prize for Barcelona, that was already 12 years ago

Barcelona closes the season without a single official title (eliminated in the semis of the Spanish Super Cup, eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey, runner-up in the League and removed in the quarter-finals of the European Cup). Something that had not happened since the 2007-08 campaign.

Quique Setién equaled his worst defeat as a coach. In 529 games, he lost twice before with 6-0

Quique Setién today equaled the worst defeat of his professional career as a coach (529 official matches). They also fell by a margin of six goals (6-0) with Lugo against Girona in the Second Division (February 16, 2014).

For the first time since 2007, La Liga does not deliver a semi-finalist in the Champions League

La Liga will be without representation in the European Cup semi-finals for the first time since the 2006-07 season (Manchester United, Milan, Chelsea, and Liverpool).
