From the arrival of Xavi Hernández to the FC Barcelona the technician has not lost out of house in the 18 parties of League that has contested, but the situation is totally different in the Champions League. The Barcelona group has fallen in all the meetings to domicile that has played with the technician egarense, the last of them this Tuesday in front of the Inter of Milan (1-0) in Giuseppe Meazza.

In Italy Xavi added the third defeat in the three parties to domicile of the Champions that has directed, and if we include the Europe League the past season the constant follows the same. In the maximum competition, the Barça fell already twice in the Allianz Sand in front of the Bayern of Munich. The Germans imposed by 3-0 in the phase of groups of the course 2021-22 and by 2-0 in the second day of the present. Like this, the global is of zero goals in favour and six against. Already regarding the Europe League the team culé alone could empatar in front of the Eintracht (1-1), although yes it won in Napolés and in Turkey when it confronted to the Galatasaray.

These tropiezos have penalised a lot to the Barça. The defeat in front of the Bayern the past season certified the elimination in the maximum European competition and the two of the current season have left it in a situation limit that will have to revertir in the three meetings that are missing so that it finalise the phase of groups. The first of them, in the Spotify Camp Nou, the Wednesday of next week, again in front of the Inter of Milan.

In the global of European tournament for Xavi, to the three defeats like visitor, adds him also that painful reverse home in front of the Frankfurt, in addition to four ties and only three victories, two of them in the past Europe League in front of the already mentioned rivals. The another triumph was the goleada in the current Champions in front of the modest Viktoria Plzen that saldó with a goleada 5-1.

Situation to resolve

Further of the result in Giuseppe Meazza, affected by two referee's decisions very argued by the Barça -the goal cancelled by hand of Ansu Fati and the penalti no signalled by hand of Denzel Dumfries-, what concerns is the poor game showed by the team of Xavi in Europe. The Barça saw surpassed by the defensive approach of the ones of Simone Inzaghi and now are forced to win the next 12 October in the Camp Nou in front of the Italians.
