Barcelona midfielder claims a Champions League comeback is possible

Published Add your comment

After a very humiliating 4-0 defeat against FC Bayern in Allianz Arena, the Catalonian giants are eager to produce an all-important come-back to go to through to the finals at Wembley.

Though, with the current form, it would be hard for the Barcelona men to do as such but the magic goal against Athletic Bilbao, this weekend, by Lionel Messi has given some hints of producing such possibilities.

The players and the coaches do believe that it would be very difficult to turn things around but  admit that they would give their best to reduce the deficit. 

Thiago Alcantara said to the official Barcelona website: "I think we will make a comeback.

"We are in a good condition and we are a team that always want to win, but anything can happen in football."

On the other hand, the team defender, Marc Bartra said: "We are very disappointed after that defeat, it was not easy at all out there. We have to try to remain optimistic even though the result makes things complicated.”

Lionel Messi also claimed after the defeat: "They were a lot stronger than us – physically superior in fact. It's a disgrace what happened, but we have to go on. We'll try to score at home and do our best. We must go on. Now we must win La Liga soon." 

"It's the worst result ever," Xavi told reporters. "They were better - and I don't mind saying that.”

The Spain international also conceded that the Liga leaders have little hope of turning the tie around in the second leg at Camp Nou next week. "It's almost impossible," he confessed. "But we must try to, for this club and for everyone."

Barcelona will face Bayern Munich again in the second leg of Champions League semi-final, but only this time it would be at Camp Nou - their home, where all the magic happens. The clash will take place on Wednesday and the winner will play the final at the Wembley.
