5 most forgettable moments in Barcelona's recent history
The heading looks ridiculous when you think of what Barcelona have achieved in the past few years. The Catalans are one of the most successful clubs in the recent times as they have won whopping 25 major titles in the last decade.
With a chance to add two more their cabinet, it is easy to forget some of their mistakes.
But on a few occasions, the team from Catalonia messed up really bad to create some sour memories for the Cules. Let us take a look at 5 such instances:
#5 Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao (Spanish Super Cup, 2015)
4-0 is an embarrassing score-line for any club. But it looks much bigger when a club like Barcelona is at the receiving end of it.
After winning the treble in the 2014-15 season, Barcelona was expected to repeat the incredible feat of winning all six trophies – The Sextuple. But Athletic Bilbao broke the Catalan dreams in a surprising turn of events.
Bilbao beat Barcelona 4-0 in the first leg of the competition, thanks to the hat-trick hero Aritz Aduriz. The attacking trio of Messi, Suarez and Pedro could not do anything as Bilbao continued the hammering.
The Catalans were thrashed by their opponents and had little to no hopes of a comeback in the second leg. And it was made further difficult by Pique's red card in the second game.
Athletic won the title with an aggregate score of 5-1, after a 1-1 draw in the second leg.
