Barcelona got off to the perfect start in the Champions League, defeating Hungarian side Ferencvaros 5-1 at the Camp Nou on Tuesday evening.
Ferencvaros started the game well, and played with great confidence in the first half, but Barcelona’s superior quality prevailed with Leo Messi, Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembélé and Francisco Trincão all starring.
Below, you can find my Match Review of Barcelona’s crushing victory.
Barcelona knew the importance of starting the Champions League on the right foot, and wrapped up an impressive victory, but there are certainly still aspects of our game that need polishing. Indeed, Ferencvaros ran all over Barcelona before Messi’s moment of genius, and Koeman’s side will need to ensure they start in sharp fashion against Real Madrid, in Saturday’s Clásico.
