Barcelona boss: We are still haunted by Liverpool's humiliation

Barcelona is still haunted by their last season’s Champions League humiliation at the hands of Liverpool admits coach Quique Setien.

Barca had a 3-0 lead heading into the second leg but succumbed to a 4-0 defeat at Anfield to crash out of the competition with Liverpool going all the way to lift the title.

It was the second humiliation for the Spanish giants after facing a similar setback in the previous campaign, beating Roma 4-1 at home in the first leg before losing 3-0 in the Stadio Olimpico to go out on away goals.

Ahead of their clash against Napoli in the same competition, Setien said: "The reality is that we've spoken very little about (Roma and Liverpool), although I'm sure they'll have it in their minds.

"Maybe it's not comparable. We've experienced incredibly tough games and I think the team is fine. The team is confident that we'll continue in this dynamic, I trust that we'll maintain the level that we've been giving for some time."

It will be Setien’s first game in the competition with Barcelona since taking over from Ernesto Valverde and his start to life with the European giants hasn’t been that bad.

He has won seven and lost two of his nine games in charge of Barcelona so far, with the club sitting two points clear of Clasico rivals Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.
