Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 11/04/2018

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has criticized his team performance against AS Roma in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals after suffering a 3-0 shocking defeat against the Italian team.

Sergio Busquets called the elimination the worst moment of his career.

"It's a very tough night, a sad night and one to forget, we need to apologise to the fans for how we have fallen," the midfielder said.

"This is the toughest blow I've received in the whole time I've been at Barca because of how it happened."

"I would be lying if I said we could use this as a learning experience because last year we went out in a similar way," added Busquets.

"And in the end, they got the result and we didn't. It's a sad way to go out, especially after the result we had in the first leg. But it went badly, Roma was superior in every way. It's a really sad night, it's disappointing for all of us.

"Our results in Europe in the last two years have been very bad, we have to change things if we want to win the Champions League again." He told Euro sport.

Barcelona hope of winning the treble is finally dashed as they will now focus on winning the La Liga and the Copa Del Rey.
