Stuttgart-FCB: Did you know…?


Barca are back on the Champions League trial tonight with their game in Stuttgart – and did you know…?

- The only time the two teams have met previously was in the Group stage of the 2007/08 competition when Barca won 0-2 in Germany and 3-1 in the Nou Camp.

- Guardiola has only lost once away in the Champions League –his first game against Wisla. Since then he has chalked up 4 wins and 5 draws.

- Barca are unbeaten in their last six visits to Germany, with four wins and two draws.

- Stuttgart and FC Barcelona scored 9 goals between them last weekend –Stuttgart hammered Cologne 1-5 and Barca beat Racing 4-0.

- One of Stuttgart’s most dangerous players is Alexander Hleb, on loan from Barca.

- Both Hleb and keeper Lehmann, as well as Barca’s own Thierry Henry, were in the Arsenal team who lost in the Champions League Final to Barca in 2006.

- Stuttgart have only beaten a Spanish team once in their 11 encounters, seeing off Real Sociedad in the 1988/89 UEFA Cup.
