Barça's 3–0 victory over Bayern Munich on Thursday handed the Club their sixth home win in six tries in this year's tournament. In the group stage Barça beat APOEL (1-0), Ajax (3-1), and Paris Saint-Germain (3-1). The Catalans then edged Manchester City 1–0 in the last 16, topped PSG again in the quarter-finals, this time by a score of 2–0, and then routed Bayern Munich 3–0 in Wednesday’s semi-final first leg.

Barça has participated in 20 of the 23 editions of the UEFA Champions League, having gone undefeated at home just twice regardless of how far they went in the tournament.

The only precedent is from the Johan Cruyff coaching era in 1993/94, when Barça he won two qualifying matches, three in the group stage and a single semi-final match with Porto held at Camp Nou. That Champions League ended with a 4-0 defeat to Milan in the final in Athens.
