There was always going to be a fairly dramatic casualty in Group C given some of the names involved and in the end, Barcelona wound up being the side that fell through the cracks – and hard.

They went head to head with Bayern Munich last night at the Nou Camp and as opposed to putting up an admirable fight, they failed to really get off the ground in a fixture that didn’t appear to suit them whatsoever.

Today, we’re taking a look at a few notable takeaways from their 3-0 defeat.

Lewandowski’s unhappy reunion

Once again, Robert Lewandowski failed to make much of an impact when going up against his former employers. He thought he’d done enough to earn a penalty only for the decision to be eventually overturned, and while he’s finding some success domestically, we’re wondering whether or not he’s rethinking his options – especially as we look ahead to the World Cup and, eventually, the transfer window.

Barca’s woes

Barcelona have four points from five games and were already out of the UCL by the time Inter had played their game, highlighting just how desperate this particular situation has become for them. Xavi has a strong squad at his disposal and this was always going to be a tricky group, but it has to be said that there isn’t the same warm feeling around the club that there was towards the start of the season.

Perfect Bayern

Bayern Munich have won all five of their games in the Champions League and, to be honest, we can’t picture a scenario in which that situation changes anytime soon. They just look like an absolute force of nature and as they continue to climb back towards the top in the Bundesliga, we wouldn’t be surprised to see them go all the way to the final as Istanbul beckons in June.
