Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller says his side "look stupid" after being battered 4-0 by Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi opened the scoring early on before star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted twice, with January signing Yohan Cabaye adding a fourth goal with two minutes left on the clock.
The defeat leaves the Bundesliga side all but out of the Champions League ahead of the second leg of the last-16 tie and Voller said he was embarrassed by the performance.
"It's always hard to comment after such a match," he told Sky after the game. "Such a loss hurts.
"To lose against a top-team like PSG isn't that much of a big deal. But it looks stupid now with us losing 4-0.
"We must turn things around now. If you go behind after two minutes it's lethal."
