Luis Enrique

Apart from the Barça comebacks Luis Enrique this season, the team is demonstrating their ability to win qualifying rounds played first and second leg, in the Champions League and Copa del Rey.

Taking into account matches from the previous season and the current one, the club has won 22 of 25 matches in the two-legged matches of Champions League and Copa del Rey. In Europe, they have only lost one match, 3-2 away against Bayern Munich. In the remaining eight games, they have always won every clash against Manchester City, PSG, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and, yesterday, against Atlético.

In Copa del Rey, the data is also spectacular, with 14 wins and two draws. The duels which ended in a draw were played this season: against Villanovense (0-0 in the first leg) and against Valencia (1-1 in the second leg). They have won the others, against Huesca, Elche, Atlético Madrid, Villarreal, Espanyol and Athletic Club plus victories against Villanovense (6-1) and Valencia (7-0).

In addition to these records, it should also be noted that Luis Enrique's Barça have also won the four finals played (Champions League against Juve, Copa del Rey against Athletic Club, UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla and Club World Cup against River). The only stain on the immaculate record of Barça was the defeat against Athletic Club in the Spanish Super Cup this season with a 4-0 in the first leg and a 1-1 in the second leg.
