Other semis at the Nou Camp

Sandra Sarmiento

Barça will look to take advantage of playing the return leg of the Champions League Semifinal at the Nou Camp to book a place at Wembley. In the last 50 years they’ve gone through after 3 of the 7 semis with 2nd legs at home.

Other semis at the Nou Camp

All eyes in the footballing world be on the Nou Camp on Tuesday as Barça aim to make their third UCL final in 6 years. The team will be aiming to press home the advantage they took in Madrid last week, backed by the Nou Camp faithful, but they know that there is still a lot of work to do. In the last 50 years, Barça have played the second leg of a European Cup semi final at home on 7 occasions and won through on 3 of them.

That famous season of Eto’o, Ronaldinho and Belletti in Paris saw Rijkaard’s team draw 0-0 in the second leg at the Nou Camp and Giuly’s goal in Italy saw them through to that unforgettable final in the French capital. Athens doesn’t hold such good memories for Barça though, as it was the scene of their defeat in 1994/5 after they had thrashed Porto in the semis with a fantastic 35 yard screamer from Koeman helping them to a 3-0 victory. Finally, the painful 85/86 final was preceded by a Pitxi Alonso hat trick against Githenburg in front of an ecstatic Nou Camp crowd.

Six of the seven results in those second leg games would see Barça through on Tuesday if repeated. As well as the results against AC Milan, Gothenburg and Porto, the 1-0 win over Inter, the 2-1 against Valencia in 2000 and the draw with Leeds in the 1974/75 campaign would all be enough to see Barça through, with only the 1-3 defeat to Real Madrid in 1959/60 not enough if it were to be repeated.
