Statistically Speaking

YOU DO THE MATH! After winning 4–1 at Camp Nou on April 4, Barça has a three-goal aggregate advantage heading into the second leg. Although Roma did score an away goal, it will only be enough to send them through should they win the second leg by a score of 3–0. Here are second leg implications for each team . . . 

Barça goes through with:
· Any win
· Any draw
· Any loss by a margin of 2 goals or fewer

Roma goes through with:
· A 3-0 win
· Any win by a margin of four goals or more

Game goes to overtime and, if necessary, penalty kicks with:
· 4–1 Roma lead at the end of regulation

HOLD THE PHONE! While Roma did manage an away goal in the first leg at Camp Nou, I Giallorossi have their work cut out for them . . . In fact, only two clubs have ever come back from an aggregate deficit of 3 or more goals . . . One of those teams was Barça, which famously came back from a 4–0 first leg debacle to beat Paris Saint Germain, 6–1, in the second leg of last season’s Round of 16 to go through, 6–5, on aggregate . . . 

BACK AGAIN! FC Barcelona is making a return to the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy, the same stadium where Barça won the 2009 Champions League final with a 2–0 win over Manchester United . . .

FULL MATCH: Barça 2, Manchester United 0. UEFA Champions League Final. Stadio Olimpico. Rome, Italy. Wednesday, May 27, 2009.
