Barcelona received another blow in the Champions League, losing 3-0 to Benfica in Lisbon. The goals were scored by the Uruguayan Darwin Núñez on two occasions, one from a penalty, and Rafa Silva to increase the crisis of Barsa, which is last in Group E and they scored six goals in two games and only had an effective shot on goal.

In turn, Barcelona ended with one less due to the expulsion of Eric García, a reinforcement that came this season. Ronald Koeman seems to be on the line and for many, he has the hours counted in the Spanish team despite the 3-0 victory at the Camp Nou against Levante, which seemed to give him a breath of air. 

In fact, the Dutch coach had neglected the commitment that this match generated in the previous one. “In Lisbon we did not risk qualifying. It is the second game of six, so it cannot be decisive”, he had declared during the week. It is true, numerically Barcelona can reverse this situation, but this new defeat could be decisive for his departure from the team.

Barcelona: Total crisis in Koeman's team

Although the league start of Barcelona was with three wins and three draws, being five points behind the leader Real Madrid with one game less, the Champions League has been catastrophic because he lost the first two games he played receiving six goals, three in each match, and has not yet scored in the tournament.

Barcelona: What will happen with Ronald Koeman?

Many fans of the Culé team ask for the resignation of coach Ronald Koeman, who knew how to be an idol of Barsa, above all, for the goal against Sampdoria that gives the Blaugrana club the first Champions League. President Joan Laporta does not seem to have a very close relationship with Koeman either, so it seems that the end of the Dutchman's cycle is getting closer and closer.
