“After two years they’ve done it” – Barcelona secures a spot in the UCL Round of 16

FC Barcelona qualified for the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 on Tuesday.

After three hard seasons, FC Barcelona has qualified for the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. The Blaugrana defeated Porto in a tough match on Tuesday, assuring their passage out of the group round. Xavi Hernandez’s club found themselves in a predicament in which all three teams (Barcelona, Porto, and Shakhtar Donetsk) had 9 points apiece. The La Liga winners clinched the deal with a 2-1 victory against last year’s quarter-finalists.

Barcelona trailed after 30 minutes as Pepê fired his shot past Iaki Pea. Barcà, on the other hand, answered immediately through Joao Cancelo, who dribbled past his marker before curving his shot past Diogo Costa. After the goal, Barcelona took control, as Joao Felix set up International colleague Joo Felix for a goal.

Barcelona won the game 2-1, securing mathematical qualifying for the group stages. The club blew an earlier chance to do so against Shakhtar Donetsk, where simply avoiding loss would have sufficed. For the first time since Lionel Messi’s departure in 2021, the club qualified for the group stages. Barcelona plays Royal Antwerp in their last group stage encounter, and they are currently leading Group H.

Barcelona fans heaved a sigh of relief as the club averted defeat for the third week in a row. Fans expressed relief and delight when the club qualified with one game remaining. The majority of the comments applauded Barcelona’s new Portuguese acquisitions, Joo Felix and Joo Cancelo. Many people believe the pair has been carrying Barcelona on their shoulders.

A fan stated that the two-year wait was now ended and that he could finally relax. Other supporters believe the team will go far in the competition now that they have qualified. Some remained sceptical of this Barcelona team, claiming that this is the most they’ll go in the competition.

Some made fun of the club, saying that they would celebrate it like they won the competition. Xavi Hernandez and company, on the other hand, will want to make the most of the circumstances by qualifying as group champions in order to escape harsher competition.
