Hope you get through the tie against Juve, because doing so will probably see you through to the final! I'm confident you'll be able to beat Juve, though they're a very strong team.
Barcelona humble Valladolid to take them within 10 points of the title!
A catastrophe of errors made it easy work for a much rotated side, as the CL holders look toward Juventus midweek. Chances where made available for many B team players, who certainly took that and proved the level they are at.
A huge CL fixture for the World tonight as Barcelona face Juventus.
Much bigger than that for a lot of football fans out there is the Messi Vs Ronaldo rivalry returns, with the players last facing off on 6th May 2018 in a 2-2 draw.
It’s a huge matchup between 2 of the tournaments favourites this season and a chance for Ronaldo to once again cause heartache to Barcelona fans, in the competition he made his own in his time at Real Madrid.
The pressure is on for the 5 time winner in his 4th season at the club, having been knocked out at this stage in 2/3 seasons!
2018/19: QF Ajax 1-1 Juventus, Juventus 1-2 Ajax (2-3)
2019/20: SF Juventus 1-2 Manchester City, Manchester City 0-1 Juventus (2-2)
2020/21: QF Manchester City 1-0 Juventus, Juventus 0-1 Manchester City (0-2)
Barcelona take what should be an unassailable advantage to Turin!
Fornas’ side showed their class in a one sided affair to define them as the team to beat this season. The debate prior to kick off was which of the 2 greats of this generation would leave their mark, but by the end all the talk is of the new superstar. Kylian Mbappé!
Many Barcelona fans leave with the thought. Is this better than Pep’s team of 2008-2012? Although Borja Fornas has only led them for 1 full season!
Barcelona 3-1 Celta Vigo
New Record unbeaten of 40 matches for FCB.
The run began 28th September 2021, surpassing that achieved 18/10/2015 until 2/4/2016 and ended Barcelona 1-2 Real M.
Pedri one of the only players to keep in the XI for this one and he proved why he is now so important to this team.
Real Madrid loss means Barcelona need just one more win from their remaining 6 games to be crowned champions for the 28th time!
Juventus will have to cause one historic comeback to turn this tie. Barcelona know (like they have a few times) that 1 goal will send them to the SF’s for the 3rd consecutive year.
A game that showed how well this FCB team can control a game and defeat any chance of a comeback. Mbappé made the home team pay for their late attacks, but it was wrapped up long before then and Barcelona march on.
Messi picked up and injury that may well see him miss the Copa del Rey Final
ScottT - It's the luck of the draw.
