Liverpool beat Barcelona in unprecedented manner at Anfield in the Champions League semi-final. While Anfield has never quite seen something like the 4-0 drubbing of Barcelona, the Catalans are experienced by now. You’d think losing to Roma and Liverpool in successive season would make them familiar to such losses, but it’s not easy.
Pique and his team has been having nightmares ever since losing the game to the Reds. The club has been scrutinizing every aspect whether it’s players or the manager. Initially, Barcelona stars including Messi stayed mum after the loss but have since found their voice.
After the first leg, Barcelona were in cruise control at 3-0. You’d think they will go on to make the final, keeping Liverpool quiet at Anfield. However, the Blizzard they faced at Anfield left Barcelona clueless and faceless.
Liverpool’s victory has been giving Barcelona players Nightmares ever since
After winning Liverpool v Barcelona, Reds have the simple task of overcoming Tottenham Hotspur in the final. Let’s hear what Gerrard Pique thinks about the loss after so many days. No, it hasn’t got any better:
“It has been hard to get up emotionally because the days passed and you did not forget the defeat, it is a fall that will last over time,”
“It was a nightmare and you have to assume it because it can happen again. But we must understand why it happened and help us in the future because we want to raise the Champions [League] again.”
