For the first time in Champions League history, Barcelona have lost in a row in the first two matches


Barcelona are increasingly at rock bottom in their modern era of football after another disappointing result in the Champions League which saw them now have lost two games in a row.

Most recently, Barcelona suffered a shock 3-0 loss at home to Benfica in the second matchday of the Champions League group stage E at Da Luz on Thursday (30/9) WIB, with them even only finishing one shot on target.

This was the second straight defeat for the Catalan giants in their group stage, having previously humiliated Bayern Munich in the first week at Camp Nou also with the same score, three goals without reply.

These two defeats against Bayern Munich (0-3) and Benfica (3-0) meant that Barcelona for the first time in history had to swallow two straight defeats in their opening two Champions League matches.

While overall in European competition, Barcelona have lost twice in their opening two matches in their entire history, after their two UEFA Cup first-round defeats against FC Porto in 1972/2073 saw them suffer early elimination.

Of course this result will further increase the pressure on Ronald Koeman, who is currently preparing to face a hellish schedule because he will face consecutive tough matches against Atletico Madrid (3/10), Valencia (18/10) and Real Madrid (24/10). in La Liga, apart from against Dynamo Kiev (20/10) in the Champions League.

Although it is honest that the Dutch tactician did arrive at Camp Nou when Barcelona were in a crisis, which even made them accept the departure of Lionel Messi, and then the return of Antoine Griezmann to Atletico Madrid.
