Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández will assume a new challenge with the Bayern Munich-FC Barcelona of the next 8 December. The first Barcelona team will have to achieve a victory where never has done it before along his history, in the Allianz Sand. Further of the humillante defeat of Lisbon or of the defeat of the first turn of the Camp Nou, the culés will have to struggle against a negative statistics.

The Barça has contested five commitments of European competition in field of the Bayern Munich; one in the Glass of the UEFA 1995/96, that finalised with tie (2-2) and four in the maximum continental competition, in which it has not gone him much better.

The balance of the Bayern-Barça in the Champions

  • 21/10/1998 · 1998/99 · Ch. League · F.gr. J.3 · Bayern - Barça · 1-0
  • 14/04/2009 · 2008/09 · Ch. League · 1/4 Turn · Bayern - Barça · 1-1
  • 23/04/2013 · 2012/13 · Ch. League · 1/2 Ida · Bayern - Barça · 4-0
  • 12/05/2015 · 2014/15 · Ch. League · 1/2 Turn · Bayern - Barça · 3-2

Clearly the balance of the Bayern-Barça is negative for the Catalan group, as in the only party that could add was thanks to a tie (1-1) in the historical campaign 2008/09, in which the 'Pep Team' signed the first triplete for the vitrinas of the Barcelona club.

Although by the minimum, the Barça Louis Go Gaal neither had been able to win before in the feudo Bavarian, in the Phase of groups of the course 1998/99. More than three lustros afterwards, the group trained by Luis Enrique Martínez ran with the same luck when falling by 3-2 again with the semifinals at stake.

Xavi also suffered it

Now like trainer, to Xavi Hernández touches him break an evil fario that he had to suffer like player of the Barça, as it contested these four precedents: the vallesano was to title in the three first crashes (contesting 87', 90' and 90' minutes, respectively) and acting in the fourth (17'), in which it went his last season in the club.

Like this then , afterwards of the 0-0 in the Camp Nou, combined with the 3-0 of the Stadium Gives Luz, the Barcelona picture needs to triumph in front of the Bayern if it wants to depend on yes same to classify to eighth of final. Of not winning in the Allianz Sand, the Barça would depend on what did the Benfica in front of the Dinamo of Kiev, that no longer plays at all. The triumph of the lusos relegaría to the Barça to the Europe League if empata or loses.
