Barcelona Legend Makes Huge Claim After Roma Defeat

PSG star Neymar

"Was it my last game in the Champions League?".

The Catalans were shockingly eliminated from the competition on Tuesday, losing 3-0 at Roma in the second leg of their quarter-final tie.

Another big clash in the battle for European qualification comes at the Sanchez-Pizjuan on Saturday, with Villarreal looking to avenge their 3-2 defeat earlier to the season by Sevilla in what was one of LaLiga's games of the season so far.

Barcelona-based paper Mundo Deportivo referred to as the beat "a historical debacle" also took aim at the former Athletic Bilbao mentor. "It is a pat on the back for the academy staff that people like Scott [McTominay] and Marcus [Rashford] are going up there and we're not seeing them again". He didn't score in the six quarterfinal games that led to Barcelona's recent eliminations.

LaLiga's teams return to action this weekend with Barcelona aiming to move a step closer to the 2017/18 title, and plenty more on the line up and down the table.

Neymar left in the offseason, and the players who joined the club after his departure were not able to play up to the same level.

Conversely, it was a night of celebration in Rome as the Italian side's incredible comeback win was hailed as "the greatest night in Roma's history".

And to add a bit more pain to the defeat, Spanish midfield maestro Andres Iniesta has stated that he could have played his last game for Barcelona.

"For us, it's about getting players into the first team".

They are unbeaten in La Liga and had only previously lost once all season, to Espanyol in the Copa del Rey.

The 33-year-old, who has been with Barca for 20 years, was asked if it could be his last Champions League appearance as a Barca player and replied, "it's a possibility, but we are all very upset today". "But we don't have any other option".

"We always try to give the maximum but we are knocked out and now feel everyone's pain". It shares the record that Real Sociedad set in 1979-80.
