Bayern Munich star Leon Goretzka has stated emphatically that he has no sympathy for Barcelona players claiming that beating the Catalans was fun in the Champions League.
Barcelona on Friday night, August 14, suffered the biggest defeat in their history in the Champions League when they lost against Bayern Munich 8-2.
Lionel Messi's wing was clipped in this encounter and was unable to save his club from an embarrassing defeat against the German champions.
Last season, Barcelona also were also bundled out of the Champions League in an embarrassing fashion against Premier League side Liverpool.
The Catalans won the first match 3-0 at Anfield, and the thought of all Barcelona fans was that their side would also triumph in England.
But Liverpool stunned them at Anfield as they recorded 4-0 win which sent the Reds to the final of the Champions League beating Spurs.
Goretzka was asked if it hurt to embarrass a possible childhood idol such as Messi, to which he replied: "No, it didn’t hurt, it was fun actually.
"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," Goretzka told Sky Sports.

Barcelona on Friday night, August 14, crashed out in the 2019/20 Champions League after losing against Bayern Munich 8-2 in which Lionel Messi failed to score.
The defeat means that Barcelona will not be winning any title this year having lost the Spanish La Liga crown to bitter rivals Real Madrid.
And after the loss against Bayern Munich, there have been reports that Quique Setien will have to leave the club although Barcelona have not made an official statement.
Former Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino has also been linked with a move to Barcelona. The Argentine has not gotten another job since he was fired at the Premier League side.
