Barça’s record against Norwegian opposition

Barça kick off a series of pre-season friendlies with a match against Valerenga in Oslo on Thursday evening. Norwegian football is largely an unknown quantity for the Club.

Although this won’t be the first time Barça have come up against a Norwegian team, previous matches have been few and far between. There was a Cup Winners Cup quarterfinal against Lyn Oslo in 1968 and a Champions League clash with Viking Stavanger in 1992. Barça won both games.

Cup Winners Cup against Lyn Oslo

The return leg ended in a 2-2 draw. Curiously enough it was also played in the Camp Nou due to the presence of snow on the pitch of the Ulleeval stadium in Oslo. However, Lyn almost pulled off a shock result –with only 15 minutes left of the match they were winning 2-0 and only two late goals from Pellicer and Gallego saved the day for Barça.

1992 Champions League against Viking Stavanger

A goalless draw in the return leg against a very defensive Viking side sent Barça through to the next round.

This Thursday, Barça will face Norwegian opposition for the third time. Valerenga will be no pushover – they are currently second in the Norwegian National League.
