Champions League back after 113 days

Jaume Marcet

The last Champions League game at the Nou Camp was 113 days ago –against Inter Milan on November 24th- a game Barca won 2-0.

Nearly four months later, the Champions League Anthem will be booming out of the Nou Camp sound system as Barca entertain Stuttgart in the last 16 of the competition.

Since the Inter game, Barca have played 9 games at home – 7 league matches and 2 in the Cup.

From Inter to Stuttgart

Barca have played 22 games in those 113 days: two in the Champions League, two in the Spanish Cup, two in the World Club Cup and 15 games in the Spanish League.

Of those 21 matches, Barca have won 17, drawn three and lost just twice – against Atletico Madrid and Seville. In terms of goals, Barca have scored 44 and conceded just 14 in the 21 matches.

World Champions

The wins over Atlante and Estudiantes brought the club their first ever World Club title. The elimination in the Cup by Seville and the duel with Real Madrid at the top of the league have also been notable points over the last 113 days.

Last season, the team had to go 93 days without a European game between the group and knock out stages, with the last group game against Shaktar on December 9th 2008 and the return leg of the Lyon game on 11th March 2009.
