- Barça fell in the 2007-08 Champions League in the second leg against Manchester United (1-0) and went through the ‘Iniestazo’ against Chelsea a season later, also in the ‘semis’ (1-1)
Barça will play the second leg of the round of 16 in Istanbul next Thursday (6:45 p.m.) without a draw with goals even being enough to advance to the quarterfinals as they no longer send the double value away from home in the event of a draw. It is the third time in the history of the Eurotournaments that the Barça team did not go over 0-0 in the first leg at the Camp Nou with a balanced balance. In the semi-final of the 2007-08 Champions League he fell in the second leg against Manchester United (1-0) after a scoreless draw in Barcelona but a year later the thorn was removed against Chelsea in the same round. After the 0-0 draw at the Estadi, Andrés Iniesta’s miraculous goal at Stamford Bridge knocked down the ‘blues’ and gave the team coached by Pep Guardiola the ticket to the final in Rome.
With Leipzig already qualified for the draw for the quarterfinals and semis on Friday the 18th (1:30 p.m.) after the elimination of Spartak Moscow by UEFA due to the body’s decision due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, only in two qualifiers there were win by more than one target. Rangers beat Estrella Roja (3-0) and Sporting Braga beat Monaco (2-0). Lyon beat Porto (0-1), Eintracht Frankfurt (1-2) Betis, Sevilla beat West Ham (1-0) and Atalanta beat Bayer Leverkusen (3-2). Much is up in the air ahead of the next draw, which will be without conditions of any kind.
