Neymar cries as Barca bow out to Juventus… and we all know what that means

Of course...


After all the drama of their second leg against Paris Saint-Germain a few weeks back, Barcelona couldn’t find a way past Juventus.

Humbled 3-0 in Turin, the return at the Nou Camp yielded little in the way of talking points – although plenty of people appeared to enjoy the sight of Lionel Messi serving as a metaphor for Barca’s failings with his spectacular first half face plant.

Understandably, there was a fair amount of disappointment and frustration amongst the Barca players at the end of the game. In the case of Neymar, it was enough for him to cry *real* tears.

Here, look…

Naturally, this was only ever going to mean one thing to many of those watching the game… Neymar was sobbing his heart out because he’d just played his last Champions League game for the club.

Yep, after a steady stream of almost-certainly-bollocks transfer speculation linking the Brazilian with a move to England, the sight of him crying at full-time was further evidence for some that he was heading for a Nou Camp exit.

As good as confirmed, then.

Juventus will now be entered into Friday’s semi-final draw along with both Madrid teams and AS Monaco, who breezed past Borussia Dortmund.
