Berlin: Xavi has described Tuesday`s humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Champions League semi-final opponents Bayern Munich as Barcelona`s "worst result ever".

The loss at the Allianz Arena was the biggest in the competition`s history at the last-four stage and represented the Blaugrana`s heaviest away defeat in European competition, and their principal playmaker admitted afterwards that the Catalans could have no complaints about the final scoreline.

"It`s the worst result ever," Xavi told reporters. "They were better - and I don`t mind saying that."

The Spain international also conceded that the Liga leaders have little hope of turning the tie around in the second leg at Camp Nou next week.

"It`s almost impossible," he confessed. "But we must try to, for this club and for everyone."

Barcelona made history in the quarter-finals by recovering from a 2-0 loss away to AC Milan to progress 4-2 on aggregate after a stirring second-leg fightback.
