FC Barcelona have twenty reasons to feel optimistic about collecting the Super Cup trophy after the second leg against Sevilla on Wednesday. That’s because twenty is the number of times that the team has won 2-0 away in the first of two legs in any competition, and every single time the Catalans have gone on to win the trophy or progress to the next round.
Here’s a recap of all those games:
Note that only one of these games happened in the Spanish Super Cup. That was in 1994/95, when FC Barcelona had won 2-0 in Zaragoza and then won the title after a truly remarkable second leg that ended 5-4 to the Aragonese. That was also the only time that Barça lost the second leg, although they still came out tops, 6-5, on aggregate.
