FULL HIGHLIGHTS: WATCH; BARCELONA 2-3 EINTRACHT FRANKFURT GOALS AND HIGHLIGHTS OF MATCH
Barcelona crashed out of Europe at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt following a 3-4 aggregate loss to the German side.
A brace by Filip Kostic saw the German side through into the Europa League semifinals with a resounding 3-2 victory at the famous Catalan arena, pushing the visitors past Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate.
Barcelona held 75% possession throughout proceedings but could not generate good chances, with just 10 total shots across the match to Frankfurt’s 15, most of which came in the final minutes as the hosts scrambled for a late miracle.
The few chances Barcelona did create went begging, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missing the biggest opportunity just after halftime.
Kostic opened the scoring for the visitors in th fourth minute through a penalty after a foul by Eric Garcia, and there was little response from Barcelona.
Rafael Borre put the German side 2-0 up with a thunderous shot before halftime, and it would compound after the break. Kostic got his second from open play after the hour mark, and that closed the door on Barcelona’s European hopes.
Sergio Busquets picked up a consolation goal early in stoppage time with a blistering strike that was befitting of a better game. In the added time Memphis Depay converted a penalty to reduce the deficit, but it was too late for Xavi’s men as they were now out of the Europa League.
