“Barcelona cannot cope with the intensity. Technically and tactically, they have it all. But at the highest level, they cannot match the intensity of the game,” Muller told DAZN after the game.
With the goal, Muller has now scored the most number of goals by any player against Barcelona in the Champions League with their elimination from the competition’s group stage being the first since 2000.
