Rio Ferdinand & Steven Gerrard lay into Barcelona after 3-0 defeat at Juventus (Videos)

Barcelona lose 3-0 at Juve

Barcelona crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Juventus Stadium tonight, as the Old Lady appeared to put one foot in the Champions League semi-final.

A brilliant brace from Paulo Dybala and a header from Chiellini took Juve to the huge win over the Catalans, who badly under-performed on the night.

Barcelona were favourites coming into the game, but they’re now really up against it to make the semis.

But of course, if anyone can do it, it’s Barcelona: just last month they pulled off one of the greatest ever comebacks by beating PSG 6-1, having lost the first leg 4-0.

Rio and Stevie G critical of Barca

But Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand won’t be holding their breath.

The pair were excoriating in their criticism of Barca in their post-match analysis on BT Sport, with Rio insisting that ‘5 or 6’ Barcelona players don’t deserve to wear the shirt.
