Champions League: Barcelona is in critical condition – Busquets
Barcelona midfielder, Sergio Busquets, has admitted the club’s situation is “critical”.
This follows a 3-0 thrashing at Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
It was the second successive time the Catalan club has lost by that margin in the competition.
Two goals from Darwin Nunez sandwiched a Rafa Silva strike in Lisbon, as Benfica followed Bayern Munich in putting three goals past Ronald Koeman’s struggling side.
It’s the first time Barca have suffered back-to-back defeats in the group stage of the Champions League since 2000 and they are in real danger of not making the knockout rounds for the first time in 21 years.
“That’s the easiest thing in the world of football, but everyone has their share in the responsibility, [including] the players.
“But we’re in a critical situation, that’s the truth,” Busquets told reporters when asked if firing Koeman could help turn Barca’s season around.
