Barcelona were thrashed 4-0 at Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.
Time to go? Barcelona coach Luis Enrique could lose his job
Barcelona's Champions League hopes are hanging by a thread after a shock 4-0 thumping at Paris Saint-Germain – and Luis Enrique could lose his job.
The Catalan giants had faced PSG regularly in recent Champions League campaigns, meeting in the quarter-finals in 2013, before being drawn together in the group stage and the quarter-finals of the 2014-15 campaign.
This time around, PSG and Barca were paired up in the last 16, with fans anticipating a close encounter between two heavyweights of European football.
However, PSG appear to have already ended the tie as a contest having thrashed Barcelona 4-0 at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday evening thanks to two goals from Angel Di Maria either side of a Julian Draxler strike, before Edinson Cavani added a late fourth.
Barcelona need a miracle to make it through to the quarter-finals now, but the biggest takeaway from the 4-0 defeat is that Barca manager Luis Enrique could be primed for the chopping block.
Enrique has been under pressure throughout the season after some less-than-convincing displays from his Barcelona side, and they currently sit second in La Liga, one point behind league leaders Real Madrid – but they have already played two more games than Real.
As compiled by Oddschecker, Everton boss Ronald Koeman currently sits as the 4/1 favourite to replace Enrique after Tuesday's disastrous showing, whilst Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino isn't much further back, with odds as short as 11/2.

Koeman, 53, is something of a Barcelona hero having smashed 88 goals in just 264 games for the club, despite being a defender. The Dutchman also scored the winning goal against Sampdoria in the 1992 European Cup final, and has often been linked with a return to the Camp Nou.
Now impressing in charge of Everton after spells with Southampton and Feyenoord among others, Koeman has lost just one of his ten Premier League games, and Everton may well be concerned that his work at Goodison Park will trigger an approach from Barca, which could be too good to turn down for Koeman.
Meanwhile, Pochettino has become one of the most highly-rated coaches in the world during his time with Tottenham, as he has turned them from top four also-rans to title contenders over the last 18 months.
The Argentinian has become known for developing young players, which would mesh well with Barcelona's values, but having both played for and managed their city rivals Espanyol, Pochettino may not find Barca quite as appealing as other managers would.
Both managers have impressed in the Premier League and are bound to attract major interest over the coming years, but with Barcelona almost certainly looking for a new manager at the end of the season, both Everton and Spurs should be on alert.
Do you think Barcelona could move for Koeman or Pochettino?
