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.
