The Camp Nou has reportedly left with around 8000 tickets unsold for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.
Barcelona are struggling to sell out their Champions League opener against Bayern Munich, with reports stating there are around 8000 tickets left unsold at the Nou Camp.
The Catalan club will host Bayern in their UEFA Champions League opening game, and around 40,000 fans are allowed.
While Barca expected a sell-out on Tuesday since it is a heavyweight clash, fans have requested only around 31,000 tickets, and around 8,000 tickets are still up for grabs.
The lack of interest from the fans could be due to the financial crisis Barcelona are undergoing at the moment.
In addition, the absence of star names like Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez has had a strong effect on the fanbase.
It has been reported recently that Barca’s squad value has suffered a massive dip in the last couple of years.
Barca have started their post-Messi era somewhat impressively, picking up 2 wins and 1 draw in three games.
Memphis Depay has been highly influential for Ronald Koeman’s side, with the Dutch international hitting the ground running with two goals and an assist.
However, Barca’s most prominent test awaits against their old foes Bayern Munich on Tuesday. The Catalan club suffered an 8-2 humiliation against the Bundesliga giants in the quarter-finals of the 2019/20 UCL season.
Barca have had their weekend La Liga clash against Sevilla cancelled and will have plenty of time to prepare for the clash against the Bavarians.
