Paris home to plenty of FC Barcelona memories

FC Barcelona will make their fourteenth visit to the famous Paris venue on Wednesday: they've won seven, drawn three and lost three so far in their history

Barça’s visit to the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night will mark their fourteenth appearance at the stadium, where they first played in the 1952 Copa Latina. Only three of those games have been against PSG  - who didn’t become the stadium’s permanent tenants till 1974 – but Barça have won seven games, drawn three and lost just three at the famous Paris venue.

Below we look at all 13 games Barça have played at the Parc des Princes so far:

26 May 1952. Copa Latina. Semi-final. FC Barcelona beat Juventus 4-2 thanks to goals from Manchón, Basora (2) and Kubala.

29 May 1952. Copa Latina. Final. Three days after seeing off the Italians, Barça beat Nice 1-0 in the final with a goal on 79minutes from César to claim their second Copa Latina.

Ibrahimovic scored for PSG and Matuidi’s injury time equaliser gave the French side some hope for the return leg, but a 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou saw Barça into the semi-finals.

30 September 2014. Champions League. Despite goals from Messi and Neymar, Luis Enrique’s side lost the Champions League group game earlier this season after David Luiz, Verratti and Matuidi scored a vital win for the French team who went on to qualify  for the knock out stages by coming second to Barça in their group.
