Third Champions Semi Final on the trot

Jordi Clos

Barca will face Inter in their third successive Champions League semi final and their fourth in five seasons – a record for the club.

After beating Arsenal, Barca will now face Inter in the semis, their third in four years following the ties against Manchester United (07/08) and Chelsea (08/09). Although in the 06/07 season Barca went out in the quarter finals, they reached the semis the season before, which means this year’s semi final is their fourth in five seasons.
