Fans troll Barcelona ahead of Bayern UCL clash with "Road to Europa" tag

  • Barcelona travel to Germany to face their worst nightmare, Bayern Munich in the final matchday of the 2021 UEFA Champions League group stages
  • Bayern Munich, the overwhelming favorites to win the Group E game, are set to face FC Barcelona in front of an empty Allianz Arena unlike their first meeting
  • Xavi and his Catalan boys need to win the game to seal qualification to the next round of the competition, and fans seem to think that won't happen

A match viewing centre's announcement board sighted by YEN.com.gh labelled the game "Road to Europa" as a troll to the Catalan club.

Barcelona travel to the Allianz Arena with the burden of having to put on a show not less than outstanding against Bayern Munich if they are to avoid elimination.
