The Spanish Media Reaction To Liverpool's Destruction Of Barcelona

The Spanish Media Reaction To Liverpool's Destruction Of Barcelona
By PJ Browne Updated

Barcelona's submission to Liverpool is "The Greatest Embarrassment In History" declared the city's local daily paper Sport on Wednesday.

Fresh in the memory, it tops last year's turnaround against Roma. Leading 4-1 after the first leg of the quarter-final, Barca lost 3-0 in the Serie A side and exited the tournament.

Sport - Greatest Embarrassment In History

Unsurprisingly, Sport's player ratings were not kind to Barcelona. Only Arturo Vidal escaped with any kind of credit and he was rated a five. For the rest it was threes all the way apart from Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho who were both given zeros.

Mundo Deportvivo offered one-word summaries for each player. Again, Vidal was rated as the best.

Vidal: Recognisable
Ter Stegen: Beaten
Sergi Roberto: Strange
Pique: Inopportune
Lenglet: Overwhelmed
Alba: Catastrophic
Busquets: Overcome
Rakitic: Unknown
Messi: Powerless
Suarez: Dry
Coutinho: Invisible

Marca's player rating gave zero stars out of three to seven of the Barcelona starting team. Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Arturo Vidal, Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets each received one star.
