Barcelona lost to Bayern Munich in the opening match of the 2021/22 Champions League group stage. The match at Camp Nou on Wednesday (15/9) early morning WIB was won by the visitors with a score of 3-0. Thomas Muller’s goals and a pair from Robert Lewandowski gave Die Roten the maximum result.
The home team experienced significant difficulties throughout the match. This match was also attended by a live audience, although in a limited capacity. The presence of the crowd at the Camp Nou in a big game in the midst of the club’s difficulties provided an atmosphere that was not ideal for the home team.
Sergi Roberto became one of the players who received negative attention. Sergi Roberto struggled at full-back and was replaced by Yusuf Demir in the 59th minute. The cheers directed at Sergi Roberto made Gerard Pique feel disappointed.
“It disappoints me because I know him personally. Sergi Roberto is an extraordinary person and he loves this club very much. I also have to remind everyone that his original position is not full-back. He made sacrifices when he played in that position,” Gerard Pique said in an interview with Movistar.
Pique emphasized the freedom to express opinions. But the former Spain international said the words conveyed could have a negative impact on those who were targeted.
