Throwing the sight backwards in Champions League, we could remember that the FC Barcelona has had problems against the Italian teams in eliminatory rounds along the last decade
To the FC Barcelona no give him too well the Italian teams in the last decade, and proof of this is that it has suffered three eliminations to hands of clubs of the Calcium in said period. The Inter of Milan (2010), the Juventus (2017) and the Rome (2018) achieved to delete to the FC Barcelona in the rounds of semifinals and quarter-finals (the two last) in League of Champions.
In 2013, besides, the AC Milan also was about to tumbar to the FC Barcelona after the 2-0 harvested in Saint Siro, that was traced back with a 4-0 in the Camp Nou. It remains clear, therefore, that the Barça can not fiarse neither a peel of the Italian teams, not even of which theoretically are inferior by talent or dangerousness of the staff in comparison to the Barcelona.
The one of Rome was the most painful elimination ofall , especially by the fact that the FC Barcelona travelled to the Olympic with a 4-1 to his favour of the party of gone. In spite of that the team already began to give symptoms of tiredness and did not play his best party, the conclusive result with which won in the Camp Nou made impossible to think in an elimination.
But it happened the unexpected, and repeated does some months in Anfield against the Liverpool after a 3-0 in favour in the party of gone. Reasons more than sufficient, taking into account the precedents, to have clear that the FC Barcelona has to go out to by all in each one of the parties of Champions League that play from now, when having arrived the eliminatory direct.
The final of 2015 in front of the Juventus, the best memory
In the last ten years, the only happy memory of the Barcelona in front of Italian clubs is the final of the Champions League of Berlin, in June of 2015. A final that the culés won in front of the Juventus (3-1), and that carry five years trying repeat to go back to bring the 'orejona' to the vitrinas of the Camp Nou.
It will not be easy, but deleting to the Naples can initiate the way this season 2019-20. And from here, that arrive the rival that have to arrive in the round of quarter-finals, where no longer there will be reestricciones by country or classification. This League of Champions promises strong emotions, and the FC Barcelona is decided to play the final of Istanbul. This time, yes.
