The culés imposed by 1-2 with goals of Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati to delete of the League of Champions to the group 'neroazzurro'. With the second unit in the field, the ones of Ernesto Valverde did a fantastic work to win for the first time in his history in the stadium of the interistas.

With the triumph in the pocket and with big feelings went back the Barcelona to Barcelona waiting for the draw of Champions of this Monday. The team barcelonista already knows to his possible rivals in eighth of final and there are clubs for all the tastes. From the finalist of the past edition, the Tottenham, until one of the 'Cenicientas' of the competition, the Atalanta.

In 'FCBN' have wanted to ask him to the fans of the Barça the rival that want for eighth and the results have been demoledores. 38% of the respondents does not have doubts that they want to to the worse theorist group of the bass drum, the Atalanta Italian. The ones of Bérgamo classified for this round 'in extremis' in the last day when anybody expected it and definitely is the rival that all the first of group want.

If almost 40% want to to the Italian club, there is other barcelonistas that bet by the morbo and want to to the Tottenham of José Mourinho. The 'spurs' probably are the best team of the bass drum beside Chelsea, but to the fans does not matter him. 21% of the votes have gone for the londinenses, that classified like seconds in the group of the Bayern of Munich. With the luso in the bench are improving a lot his provision and could be very dangerous of face to a hypothetical clash in eighth.

With 16% of the votes remains Chelsea, that also could give him more than a discontent to the Barcelona.

The ones of Lampard are doing a big season, taking into account that they have not been able to fichar and that have remained without his big star, Eden Hazard. The English trainer is taking out the best of the more youngsters and the Barça would have to walk with a lot of eye if it touched in eighth.

Segundo 'round' with the Lyon or the Naples of Gatusso

Another 16% of the respondents thinks that the ideal would be to go back to play against the Olympique of Lyon. The French, perhaps are a point by in front of the Atalanta by experience in Europe, but would not have to suppose any problem for the ones of Valverde. The Barça already confronted in eighth to the Frenchmen the past course and, although it suffered in the gone, finished winning with ease in the turn of the Camp Nou. Besides, this Lyon had Tanguy Ndombélé, pillar of the centre of the field the past year, that this campaign plays in the Tottenham.

Finally, the now Naples of Gennaro Gatusso is the rival that less want the Barcelona. The napolitanos alone have obtained 9% of the votes and, according to the results, is the team to avoid in eighth. With Carlos Ancelotti, the Italians have happened the phase of groups like seconds, although contesting him the leadership to the Liverpool until the last day. The technician no longer is, since it was sacked of surprising form after classifying to the club for the following round, but the Naples follows having good players and a good team. In pre-season, the culés already played against the Italians in two occasions and won in both.
