    Mickey Bricks: As a Real Madrid fan I wanna say the comeback win against Athletico for La Decima but seeing Barca hit for eight is just sweet

  3. 'It’s too soon to be talking about whether I stay at the club or not' - Setien

    Barcelona coach Quique Setien talking to Movistar: "It’s a tremendously painful defeat. They scored more goals that they merited. We started pretty well but the power of the opponents, in many phases of the play, overran us.

    "I’m not going to talk about what is needed at the club. I've been here for just a few months. If Gerard Pique says that it's time for big changes there’s going to be importance to his words. It’s time for us to review and take the decisions which are needed for the future.

    "I think that right now it’s too soon to be talking about whether I stay at the club or not. The reality is that it doesn't depend on me. It's worth all of us working out what's important and considering a wide range of things which correspond to a defeat of this importance and which is so painful."

  4. 'We need to recharge and focus on the next game' - Flick

    FT Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich

    Bayern coach Hansi Flick: "We knew that if we put them under pressure, we would get chances. We have such quality and intensity in this team, now we need to recharge and focus on the next game, where we start again from zero.

    "Muller deserves man of the match award, he was the one who controlled our pressing, but ultimately I have to pay compliments to my whole team for keeping up that intensity for 90 minutes.”

    Wi Fi Tom: Forest 5 Derby 2, Christmas 2010 with ex Rams man Robert Earnshaw bagging a few. Very happy night!

    Aleksandar Todorov: Barcelona 6-1 PSG - March 2017. Coming down from a 4-0 aggregate to win 6-5 on aggregate. It could have been the same here but Bayern was just good for them. It's time for change within Barca for sure.

  8. 'We've taken the first of three steps' - Goretzka

    FT Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich

    Bayern midfielder Leon Goretzka speaking to Sky: "It’s difficult to put this into words so soon after the game. I think it will take a couple of days to process this result.

    "We have so much confidence, but as we just said in the changing room we've taken the first of three steps."

  9. 'Is it an end of an era, I'm not sure?' - Pique

    FT Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich

    Barcelona defender Gerard Pique speaking to Spain's Movistar: "I'm in pain. We all are. We can't compete like that. It's very, very tough to take. Nothing more is worth saying. The club needs changes. Not just the players, I don't want to point out anyone.

    "But football is a sport where change is constantly required. We must change the dynamic we are on because I believe we have just hit bottom. We have to look around, we have to trust that people will do the right things for the club.

    "Is it an end of an era, I'm not sure? But I know that we must accept that we have hit bottom. Not just players the but, as a club, we aren't on the right road. We have had years of success but we haven't won the league and we haven't won in Europe and we have to compete. You've seen it on the pitch and this today is unacceptable.

    "If I have to go in order to change things I'll be the first to accept that. This was a horrible game... it's a dreadful feeling. It's shameful. Structurally we need changes at all levels."

  10. ' An incredible result in the end, but we’re not done yet' - Kimmich

    FT Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich

    Bayern defender Joshua Kimmich on Sky: "Brutal. It’s hard to comprehend beating Barcelona 8-2. We were so focused from the first minute, we wanted to get forward with intent. An incredible result in the end, but we’re not done yet."

  11. Have you seen a more incredible game?

    #bbcfootball or 81111 (UK only)

    Ash Williams: The Liverpool comeback was special. They were written off because of the 1st leg. No one expected Barca to get thrashed this bad in one game.

  12. 'Not all Setien's fault'

    Guillem Balague

    Spanish football journalist on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Quique Setien was fourth choice. Nobody was fighting for the manager today, he had no authority. This was his third game in the Champions League ever. But it was not his fault he was chosen and it is not fully his fault what is happening [at the club].

  13. Have you seen a more incredible game?

    #bbcfootball or 81111 (UK only)

    Ronan: Spain 3-3 Portugal in 2018 was much more entertaining for me. Drama until the last minute

    Antony Storey: That was some game, but nothing will beat NEWvARS! 4-0 down at half time, Tiote with a screamer from the edge of the box to make it 4-4 in the 92nd minute!

  14. 'This is a big statement but the next game we start at 0-0' - Muller

    FT Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich

    Bayern Munich midfielder Thomas Muller on BT Sport: "It's tough to explain. I think in this moment our team is in incredible shape.

    "Thanks for the man of match trophy - maybe we have 12 to 15 players who deserve it. We worked so hard and have this intensity. It's tough to beat us. It was so much fun today.

    "For our style of players it doesn't matter about the names of players we are facing. When someone presses and dribbles, it's not a problem. Then we catch the ball and have so much talent in the offensive line.

    "We feel good, but now we have to be quiet and regenerate.

    "This is a big statement but the next game we start at 0-0. The statement doesn't matter. The other teams will watch our game and they can be impressed or not. We start at 0-0 and have to win the next game.

    "Today we have to be very happy. After we wake up and answer the messages on the phone then we have to focus.

    "I know about these tournament situations. Most of the time after the big wins (he played in the 7-1 win over Brazil at the 2014 World Cup) it's difficult."

  15. Barca's heritage 'thrown in the bin'

    Guillem Balague

    Spanish football journalist on BBC Radio 5 Live

    It is the consequence of many years of decay. Nobody has been intelligent enough to identify what is happening.

    It's embarrassing. Barcelona changed football. That heritage has been thrown in the bin.

    Barcelona is so political and the players run the show.

  16. Have you seen a more incredible game?

    #bbcfootball or 81111 (UK only)

    Maybe it was the 7-1 defeat for Brazil in 2014?

    What about Liverpool and Tottenham's comebacks two years ago in the Champions League?

    Let us know.

  17. Post update

    FT: Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich
