Never an easy trip

Miriam Nadal

Although Barca and Stuttgart have never met before, Barc ado have a long history of matches against German opponents.

There’s no easy games in Germany for Spanish teams who are forced to adapt to a harsher climate and different tactics. In fact of the 21 games Barca have played in Germany, the most normal result has been a draw – eight times, with six wins and seven defeats.

Werder Bremen have faced Barca in the last two editions of the Champions League. In the 05-06 tournament Barca won 3-1 at home and 2-0 in Germany, whilst a Messi goal gave Barca a useful point in Bremen last year, on the night that Eto’o picked up the injury that marred his season.

Bayern Leverkusen were Barca’s rivals in the 01-02 and 02-03 seasons and won in Germany in the first season, whilst losing in the Nou Camp 1-2 in the return game. The following year, Barca won both home and away.
