“So sad how far Barcelona have fallen... they look like kids compared to Bayern in their own house.”
Someone else wrote:
“Wow, how far have Barcelona fallen. They are awful [and] they remind me of Arsenal.”
A third fan posited:
"Barcelona have turned into the new Arsenal. Losing their best players & replacing them with average players with a bit of potential hoping they come good.
"Luckily La Liga only has 2 other good teams for now so will be happy to make Champions league just like Arsenal.
And a fourth added:
“Barcelona went to a back three to defend against Bayern Munich in their own backyard and they're currently losing. How the mighty [have] fallen.”

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for the visitors in the 13th minute after tapping into the net a cross from his countryman Bruno Fernandes.

Ronaldo gifts steward his jersey
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo had to abandon Manchester United's light training session to attend to the steward he knocked out with a thunderous shot ahead of their Champions League opener against Young Boys.
The 36-year-old was getting ready for the Red Devils' Champions League opening Group F encounter when he fired the shot that went off target and hit one of the stadium's hands.
After realising what he had done, he had to jump a barrier just to attend to the innocent person who was just doing her job before the rocket shot knocked her out.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was said to have given the steward his jersey after Man United's UCL defeat to Young Boys.
