A Frustrated Jordi Alba Throws The Ball at Arjen Robben’s Face During UCL Semis (GIF)
On Tuesday, Barcelona F.C. suffered an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Bayern Munich during the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final match-up. The loss was their worst defeat in European competition since 1994, when Fabio Capello’s A.C. Milan defeated Johan Cruyff’s “Dream Team” by a score of 4-0 in the Champions League Finals in Athens, Greece. So it should therefore come as no surprise to hear that the Barca players were visibly frustrated throughout the duration of yesterday’s match.
And no player appeared to be more frustrated than Barcelona defender Jordi Alba, who received a yellow card for tossing the ball at the face of Bayern’s Arjen Robben in the 89th minute.
Check it out:
Let’s just say that Alba’s toss was one of the few times that a Barca player was on target during the match, as they only managed one shot on goal throughout the course of the game.
Needless to say, that type of effort simply won’t cut it for Barcelona if they hope to dig themselves out of this four-goal deficit when the two teams return to the Camp Nou for the second leg next Wednesday.
