It ended the Catalan giants' run of 17 successive appearances in the Champions League knockout stage.

Boss, Xavi slammed his players, saying they simply did not compete.

The Spaniard, who replaced Ronald Koeman in November, added that the result also highlighted the huge challenges he has to face, in order to turn their fortunes around.

Besides their European form, Xavi must also contend with their domestic struggles as they are currently 7th in La Liga.

This means that unless Xavi pulls off a miracle, Barca won't be be competing in Europe at all next season.
