Barça will take a 2-1 lead into the second leg of their Champions League tie against Manchester City next month – a result that should give them plenty of confidence – along with the stats that show they’ve always won through in Europe with a similar first leg score.

Barça have won the away first leg of a European tie 1-2 on four previous occasions and each time they have gone on to win the tie, seeing off  Basle (Fairs Cup, 1958-60), Spartak Prague (European Cup, 1985-86), Fram Reykjavik (Cup Winners Cup, 1990-91) and Chelsea (Champions, 2005/06). In the case of the Fairs Cup and Champions League wins, the team went on to win the competition that season.
