Alphonso Davies may have ended the Barcelona career of Nelson Semedo according to the commentator.
The Portuguese right back was utterly destroyed by Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies in his side’s 8-2 humiliating loss on Friday.
Davies, 19, dribbled past Lionel Messi and Arturo Vidal; turned turned Semedo in and out, nutmegged him and raced into the box before setting up Johsua Kimmich for Bayern Munich’s 5th goal.

I think Davies gets a little too much praise for the first sequence tbh. Awful defensive play by Semedo. What impresses me the most is how Davies keeps his head cool and passes the ball to Kimmich at the perfect time. pic.twitter.com/ZDvlNhXk8s

Some Stats from the game
1 – Barcelona became the first team to ship four goals in the first half of a Champions League knockout game since Porto conceded five to Bayern in April 2015, in the second leg of a quarter-final.
3 – Three of the coaches in the semi-finals will be German, with Bayern’s Hansi Flick joining RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann and Paris Saint-Germain’s Thomas Tuchel. The Champions League has never before seen three head coaches from a single nation represented in the semi-finals.
5 – Robert Lewandowski became the fifth player in European Cup or Champions League history to score in eight consecutive games, and the first from Bayern to achieve the feat.
6 – Thomas Muller has now scored more goals in the Champions League against Barcelona than any other player. His fifth and sixth came before the break, meaning Muller has overtaken Andriy Shevchenko, who netted five in his career against Barca. This is just Muller’s fifth appearance against Barcelona in the competition.
7 – Barcelona had just seven shots in the entire match.
8 – Bayern became the first team to score eight times in a Champions League knockout game, while Barcelona conceded eight for the first time since losing 8-0 to Sevilla in the Copa del Rey in 1946.
23 – Muller’s double took him to 23 career goals in the Champions League knockout stages, and he stands third on that list behind Cristiano Ronaldo (67) and Messi (47).
29 – Barcelona’s oldest XI for a Champions League match was picked apart. Their average age was 29 years and 329 days, and Barca looked like veterans as they were repeatedly carved open.
31 – Bayern’s fourth goal arrived in the 31st minute, making it the earliest point of a Champions League knockout game by which a team has scored four.
50 – Lewandowski reached 50 Champions League goals for Bayern in what was his 60th game for the German giants in the competition. That is a record only ever bettered in the competition by Ronaldo, who reached the landmark in 50 games for Real Madrid
