Battle For The Treble: Barcelona’s Road To Berlin

share on:

One more trophy remains for Barcelona to seal their treble and mirror their 2009 achievement. The only thing standing between the Catalans and this memorable feat is Serie A champions, Juventus.

Now, this is Barcelona’s journey throughout the competition and how they fared on the road to Berlin.

Barcelona topped group F with 15 points and the only team that rained on their parade, was PSG, who they lost 3-2 to in France on matchday two.

The knockout stage was like cakewalk to the Blaugrana, who dispatched Man. City and beat them home and away despite Hart’s spectacular display. The Catalans recorded a 3-1 win on aggregate.

Barcelona encountered PSG in the quarter-finals, a team that made them sweat in the group stage, but with the help of Suarez, they took out the Ligue 1 champions 5-1 on aggregate.

The semifinals was not meant to be an easy task for Barcelona where they encountered Bayern. Messi’s brilliance shone brighter at Camp Nou, as the Argentine helped Enrique’s men to a 3-0 win at home. At Germany, Bayern’s comeback was put to bed by Neymar’s brace. Barcelona proceeded 5-3 on aggregate.

Injuries have helped Barcelona throughout the knockout stage and that might help them lift the UCL, with Chiellini out of the squad to face Barca due to injury.
