Massimiliano Allegri is living a great season in Juventus and after winning the Serie A and the Italian Cup he is running up to achieve the first treble of the Italian club's history in his first year on Juventu's bench. But the challenge is not easy and the coach knows it. Barça are one of the teams that couldn't win in the European competition.

Eliminated at quaterfinals (2011/12)

After drawing in Italy to 0, Guardiola's men eliminated the Italians at Camp Nou with a result of 3-1 in the Champions League quarterfinals. Messi scored a penalty, Nocerino drawed the match, the Argentinian placed Barça ahead again with a penalty and Iniesta scored another goal at 53 minutes.


That same year the teams met each other on the group stage and Milan achieved to win neither of the matches. The first-leg match ended with a draw to 2 at Camp Nou and the second leg Barça won by the minimum difference in San Siro.

Eliminated at Round of 16 (2012/13)

Tito Vilanova's Barça got to set the result back from the first-leg match to classificate for the Champions League quarterfinals. In the first match in Italy, Boateng and Muntari scored and complicated the situation to Barça, who saw how they were almost eliminated from the competition.

It was a complicated moment for Barça because they also got defeated against Real Madrid (in Copa del Rey and in La Liga), but with the second leg match they recovered the best version with a convincing trashing that eliminated Allegri's men. As usually happens in important matches, Messi leaded the victory leaving Camp Nou breathless with two spectacular goals form outside the box and Villa and Jordi Alba closed the match (4-0).

No victory at the group stage (2013/14)

Barça and Milan met again at Champions League at the group stage last year. The first leg was played in San Siro and it was the most complicated matches with Martino on the bench. Robinho got Milan ahead with an early goal after a combination with Kaká, but Messi appeard to save a point with a goal at 23 mins.

At the second leg match at Camp Nou Barça achieved the access to the Round of 16 two matches to close the group stage. Milan went on with less power and Barça shinned than in the first leg match with two Messi goals and one by Busquets. Piqué scored an own goal for the Italians.
