Pep Guardiola endured an unforgiving return to the Camp Nou, where he won three league titles and two ChampionsLeague crowns during four season with Barcelona. Now, though, former teammate Luis Enrique is manager of Barcelona, and appears finally to be easing in to the role.
The second of this week’s Champions League semi finals really stood out in the football results from yesterday (Wednesday 6 May). Nobody expected Barcelona to beat Bayern Munich comfortably with a 3-0 score line. Of course, anything is possible when your strike force is comprised of Leo Messi, Luis Suárez, and Neymar.
Despite holding 55% of possession, Bayern could only generate eight attempts on goal –none of which were on target. Meanwhile, Barcelona created 15 total attempts and hit the target on eight of those.
After 77 minutes, Leo Messi made the breakthrough. He then added a second only three minutes later. Neymar completed the scoring at 3-0 with a goal in stoppage time.
