Genius has an infinite capacity to self-destruct. Which is what Liverpool found out to their great joy at the Camp Nou last night. How else can a team, which cannot lay claim to even a few seconds of imaginative / creative play, beat the reigning European champions, whose degeneration looked complete? Discipline is the word. That’s what Barca lacked, and what the Merseysiders had in abundance.
Given the abysmal form almost everyone is in, and with a defence which invites strikers to have a go at them, it is tough to see how Barcelona can go to Anfield and return without getting badly bruised. In theory, their title defence is over.
