Good night in Barcelona.. Untying the Champions League knot and making millions

Barcelona succeeded in reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League after defeating Napoli 3-1 in the second leg of the round of 16 of the “Eared Ones”.

The first leg between the two teams at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw, with Barcelona winning on aggregate 4-2.

Perhaps this news represents an unraveling of the major complex that has plagued Barcelona in recent years, with its failure to pass the round of 16 and reach the quarter-finals.

It started with the 2020 quarter-final defeat by Bayern Munich 8-2, after which the Catalans never reached the quarter-finals in 3 appearances.

The first time was the following season, as Lionel Messi’s teammates exited the competition at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 with a 5-2 aggregate defeat.

As for the past two seasons, Barcelona was eliminated in the group stage and then moved to the European League, where it was eliminated once in the round of 16 play-offs, and again in the quarter-finals.

By reaching the quarter-finals, Barcelona secured 10 million euros, which is a very important number for the management of Joan Laporta in light of the stifling economic crisis that the Catalan club is going through.
