Barcelona supporters circulated numbers on social media on Thursday evening, to reveal their frustration with defender Eric Garcia.
Of course, Xavi Hernandez’s forces are in action.
After maintaining a good level of performance thanks to a last-gasp ouster of Levante in La Liga at the weekend, the Blaugrana have turned their attention to matters on the continent, in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final with the Bundesliga. Uniforms Eintracht Frankfurt.
Barcelona headed to the measures knowing that a positive result was necessary, after drawing 1-1 in Germany this day last week.
In contrast, things couldn’t have gotten off to a much worse start for the evening’s hosts when Eintracht advanced at the Camp Nou within three minutes.
After Eric Garcia was guilty of a clumsy foul in the penalty area, a well-deserved penalty was awarded, with Philippe Costek not fouling the lead to hit the net from 12 yards:
Eintracht Frankfurt Led at Camp Nou! 🚨
Eric Garcia takes a dirty kick for giving Philip Kostic a penalty kick, and he sure buries it! 💪

Eric Garcia is only good at taking penalty kicks. An absolute joke for the player, he is not even fit to play for a club in the Spanish League
