After Cristiano Ronaldo, eliminated in the round of 16 with Juventus Turin last week (0-1, 2-1 against Lyon), FC Barcelona under Lionel Messi was brutally ejected by Bayern Munich (2-8) on Friday in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Consequence: neither of the two superstars will be present in the last four of the competition. This is the first time this has happened since 2005. La Pulga were in their first season for the first team, while the Portuguese was only in his second year at Manchester United. The two clubs were eliminated in the round of 16. Note that the following year, in 2006, Messi, injured, no longer played from the quarter-finals, but his Barça had won the competition.
