16 years since an epic night

Edgar Fornós

Dynamo Kiev return to the Camp Nou sixteen years after one of the most dramatic European nights the stadium has ever witnessed. An amazing 4-1 comeback win saw Barça go into the last sixteen of the Champions League.

FC Barcelona started their 1993/94 Champions League campaign in Kiev. Dynamo won the home leg 3-1, meaning Barça had a lot of work to do back home if they wanted to make it into the next round.

The Camp Nou saw the very best of the Dream Team as the game ended 4- 1 and saw Cruyff and his boys qualify in style. Sixteen years after that game, which was also played on September 29, and two sides are set to meet again in the same competition.

End to end stuff

The game was only nine minutes old when Laudrup gave FCB the lead, and Bakero added a second that meant the Catalans were momentarily through. But still in the first half, Rebrov produced a twist in the tale by scoring, and Barcelona were once again playing catch up.

Bakero and Koeman seal the deal

But then Ronald Koeman produced the winner from a trademark free kick, and Barça were into the last sixteen.

If the game at the Camp Nou on Tuesday can match that one for excitement, then it will be a game no football fan can afford to miss.

Post match comment
“We have advertised what good football is all about” and “what Romario did today should be recorded on video so that youngsters can learn from it” were a couple of the legendary comments made by Johan Cruyff in his press conference after the game with Dynamo.
