Lionel Messi 4, Antoine Griezmann 3, Thomas Mueller 9: Barcelona v Bayern Munich player ratings

A humiliating night for the Spanish giants

Barcelona's worst ever defeat in Europe, an 8-2 mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich, will almost certainly signal the end of Quique Setien as coach.

Setien may not even survive the weekend but the fact a second sacking in eight months would be the least of Barca's worries says it all.

"The club needs changes," said Gerard Pique. "Nobody is untouchable, least of all me. Fresh blood is needed to change this. We've hit rock bottom."

Lionel Messi was supposed to win it alone, the Argentinian charged with somehow masking the failings of an entire club against the most formidable team in Europe.

Instead he and his teammates were outplayed and outclassed.
