La Blaugrana midfielder Andres Iniesta has stated that the game against AS Roma could have been his last game for Barcelona in the Champions League.

With a 3-4-1-2 formation, Roma coach, Eusebio Di Francesco, proved a tactical masterstroke as goals by Edin Dzeko, Daniele de Rossi and Kostas Manolas saw off Barcelona.

"A failure without excuses", read Sport's front cover, with an editorial adding: "Valverde's fear leaves Barca without another Champions League in the era of Messi".

"Somehow or another, there has to be a rethink about player selection and player development at Football Club Barcelona because what happened last night was not a one-off". "We've seen it a little bit regularly - if you're a heartfelt Barca fan or if you're a Barca planner or if you're their president or indeed their captain, Andres Iniesta - there's an exact similarity to Turin past year". Busquets was even more scathing than Iniesta in his criticism of the performance.

And Iniesta, who looks likely to depart to China at the end of the season admits it's been a bitter pill to swallow - considering it may be his last game in Europe's elite club competition.

The Catalans were shockingly eliminated from the competition on Tuesday, losing 3-0 at Roma in the second leg of their quarter-final tie. "We were hopeful of advancing to the semifinals after having played a great first leg". "We still have other tournaments to play and we have to focus on them".

Raikkonen later issued a team statement saying: "What happened to our guy Francesco today at the pit-stop is very unfortunate". Moments later, having left his pit, Raikkonen was told to stop, the Finn subsequently climbing from his auto and retiring.

"It will be very hard to recover", said veteran Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta, who most likely played in his last Champions League match. "Right now we feel bad".

Lionel Messi has launched a stinging attack on Manchester United, blaming them for Barcelona's surprise exit from the UEFA Champions League, reports say.

Leaders Barça will look to set a new all-time LaLiga record of 39 consecutive games unbeaten when they host Valencia at the Camp Nou on Saturday afternoon.

What followed was a kind of fudged change, bolstering his central midfield but leaving another area of the field undermanned. The Premier League leaders were put to the sword at Anfield by Liverpool , as the Reds claimed a 3-0 first leg victory.
