Barcelona is heading into the Europa League.
[They are really missing that guy.]
Barcelona needed to win in Munich or get some help from Dynamo Kyiv in Lisbon. Both outcomes didn’t happen.

The task only got more difficult for Barcelona when Dynamo Kyiv fell two goals behind in the opening 22 minutes of their match in Lisbon.
Barcelona at that point needed a performance that was going to yield goals.
Barcelona went down a goal in the 34th minute after Thomas Muller’s dipping header crossed the goal line before getting cleared.
