A return to the scene of the third Champions League triumph
FC Barcelona have been training at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, where they were proclaimed European champion in 2009
FC Barcelona are getting ready to try and seal their passage to the semifinals of the Champions League. Ernesto Valverde and his team are in Rome, where on Tuesday they will play the return leg of the quarterfinals of the competition (8.45pm CET, TV3 / Antena 3). Though they are 4-1 ahead from the first leg, they won’t relax.
To prepare for the match, the squad of 21 trained on the pitch of the Stadio Olimipico, a venue that holds good memories for the Blaugrana as, back in 2009, they won the Club's third Champions League against Manchester United. But the past is the past, and now the most important thing is to achieve a result that will ensure Barça will be in the semifinal draw on Friday.
