FC Barcelona’s victory in Abu Dhabi evoked memories of the team’s wins against Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk earlier in the year.

Late goals

Against Chelsea in London last term Andrés Iniesta struck in the 88th minute to book a place in the Champions League final for Barça while the win in Monaco in August did not come until Pedro’s effort in extra time saw off Shakhtar.

Comeback kings
One thingh the current Barça team are renowned for is that they never give in and the win against Estudiantes showed just how true that is.

Two other notable comebacks came last term when the Blaurgana came from behind to win 2-6 in the Santiago Bernabéu against Real Madrid and also in the Spanish Super Cup Final against Athletic Club.
