Good record against English

Sandra Sarmiento

Barça have won 6 of the 7 European finals they have played against English clubs. Their only defeat was in the Cup Winners Cup final in Rotterdam in 1990/91.

Good record against English

It was here that Barça won their first European Cup 19 years ago, and also where they made it four. London has seen Barcelona come of age. But Barça also have a fantastic record in European finals against clubs from that country.

3 in Fairs Cup

Of their 17 continental finals, seven have been against English clubs, and FC Barcelona have won 6. Their three first were in the Fairs Cup, in the late 60s and early 70s, against the London XI, Birmingham XI and Leeds United. Evaristo, Vergés, Tejada and Dueñas were among the players that brought these early triumphs for Barça.

Last 3 Champions Leagues

Three Champions League wins have situated them among the elite and the finals have been won against Manchester United in 2009 and 2011 and Arsenal in 2006. That’s one win under Frank Rijkaard and two under Pep Guardiola.

Only defeat

Barça have only ever lost one European final against an English team, and that was the Cup Winners Cup in 1990/91. Here again the rival was Manchester United. At the De Kuip, the Red Devils won 2-1, with both goals coming from former FCB man Mark Hughes.
