The Argentine forward and his team mates were completely outclassed and outmuscled by the Bavarians and have a huge task at the Camp Nou to salvage anything from the tie.
Itβs 4-0 and it will be difficult because they are a great team,β Messi told reporters.
They were a lot stronger than us physically superior in fact. Itβs a disgrace what happened, but we have to go on.Weβll try to score at home and do our best. We must go on. Now we must win la Liga soon.β
Messi has not played for the Spanish giants, since he came off the bench to help them oust Paris Saint-Germaine, in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, but waved aside talk that his fitness was key.
It was some days since I played and I didnβt feel 100% comfortable but I was not injured, so I could play,β the 25-year-old insisted.
