Barcelona website looks on the bright side

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — After its 7-0 drubbing in the Champions League semifinals, Barcelona is looking on the bright side.

The top story on the club’s official website Thursday was headlined: “Barca rule Champions League possession.”

The story starts by noting that Barcelona was the top-ranked club for possession and passes in the Champions League this season.

The next sentence starts to deliver the bad news, noting that the team’s scoring record wasn’t as good, “with 18 for and 17 against.”

In the third paragraph, underneath a photo of Xavi Hernandez making a pass, the story states that the Champions League came to an end for Barcelona on Wednesday.

Barcelona lost to Bayern Munich 3-0, a week after its 4-0 loss in Germany in the first leg.
