The Catalan club was overpowered by the Serie A giants, and their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals now hang by a thread.

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand, who won the Champions League with the Red Devils, was a critical of a few players in Luis Enrique's squad.

"There’s a lot of players there that you think to yourself they couldn't have got in the Barcelona team three years ago -- too many names to mention.

"There are five or six in this team who shouldn't even be putting on the shirt. The way that they played – the intensity, the quality. They're not on the same planet and these are the players who have really got to feed the front three and are not getting the ball to them quick enough.

"And defensively they don't look like they've got any individuals in there who want to defend. Collectively they're not doing it. This team don't press like the Barcelona team did under Pep Guardiola. These guys look like they don't have any idea or desire to want to press."
