BARCELONA ace Riqui Puig has infuriated Spanish journalists after he was caught watching Money Heist after the Catalan club were dumped into the Europa League.
Bayern Munich made light work of Xavi's Barca on Wednesday, winning 3-0 to eliminate the Spanish side from the group stages of the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.
Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane both netted in the first half.
And youngster Jamal Musiala put the final nail in the coffin with a tidy finish on the 62nd minute mark.
Barca will now play in the Europa League, and to get over the disappointment, Puig decided to watch the popular Netflix series Money Heist, infuriating Spanish media.
One guest on El Chiringuito fumed: "Yes, but no, for Barca's image, not today, he can't watch Money Heist."
Barca legend Lobo Carrasco – who looks broken by the news of his former club dropping out of Europe's biggest club competition – responded saying: "I prefer not to have an opinion."
Europa League football is the 'harsh reality' of Barca's situation, says boss Xavi.

But the Spaniard demands his players 'use this as a turning point to change many things'.
After the crushing 3-0 defeat, Xavi said: "Today, Bayern were better than us, they were superior.
"We have tried; we have pressed high, taken the ball from them but our situation is the harsh reality that we have.
"Today is the start of a new chapter for us and we have to start demanding a lot more from ourselves, we must use this as a turning point to change many things.
"Today we did not compete with a top team and our reality is that we are a Europa League team.
"We are going to face this reality with all the dignity in the world and work to bring Barca back to where we deserve to be, which is not the Europa League.
"It really annoys me to face our reality, I am angry. Barça does not deserve this. There are many circumstances that have made us like this.
"I feel responsible for the outcome, I thought we could qualify but it has not been like that. Anyone who tries never fails.
"Our Europa League challenge? We have to win it, win every game and title."
