Barça shoot four times more

Roger Bogunyà

FC Barcelona had four more attempts on goal than Real Madrid on the night that they sealed passage to the Champions League final at Wembley. Here is some further trivia associated to the game.

Barça shoot four times more

► In total, FCB had 12 shots compared to just 3 for Madrid. In terms of shots on target, the ratio was 8-1. Madrid scored with their only shot on target.

► Messi alone, with six attempts, had twice as many attempts as the whole Madrid team.

► Barça made exactly twice as many passes as Madrid: 734 to 367. In terms of completed passes, the balance was even better (645 to 276).

► There was also a huge difference in fouls. Madrid committed 30 compared to 10 for Barça.

► Puyol (11) and Alves (10) recovered the most balls for Barça. Only Arbeloa (12) topped that for Madrid.

► Abidal reappeared a month and 21 days after his last game at the Sánchez Pizjuán on March 13, which also ended 1-1.

► Pedro scored for the first time in 11 outings. He hadn’t scored since the 3-0 win in Mallorca on February 26.

► In fact, the Canary Islander is the only player who scored in both of the last two Champions League semi finals, for he scored in Milan last year and again at the Camp Nou on Tuesday.

► Keita is the Barça player who has gone the longest without missing a game. He has played in all 25 matches (10 as a starter and 15 as a sub) since Barça beat Malaga (4-1) on January 16.

► Barça have no suspended players for the final on May 28.
