Bernat: Barcelona attack nearly unstoppable

The left-back witnessed at first hand the strength of the club’s forward line as his side were well beaten at Camp Nou last week

Bayern Munich defender Juan Bernat has acknowledged his side face a nearly impossible task to stop Barcelona’s attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar on Tuesday night.

The Catalans’ frontline have already amassed over 100 goals in all competitions this season and overwhelmed Bayern in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final last week.

Messi score twice at Camp Nou before Neymar added a third, meaning Pep Guardiola’s side must produce one of Europe’s greatest ever comebacks if they are reach the final.

“Barcelona are nearly unstoppable going forward at the moment,” Bernat was quoted as saying by TZ.

“Their three attackers in particular have been in sublime form. We will have to make sure to keep a close eye on them.

“With players such as Messi, Suarez and Neymar, who are all very strong individually, you should always have some sort of extra safety net.

“You cannot afford to give them any space, they need only very little room to create something and become dangerous.

“We can only succeed if we don’t give them any time to think.”
