Barcelona missed the chance to equal a Champions League record when they crashed out of the competition at the hands of Juventus.
Luis Enrique’s side lost 3-0 to Juve on aggregate in the quarter-finals after Wednesday’s second leg at Camp Nou ended in a 0-0 draw.
Victory on the night would have been a 16th straight Champions League win at Camp Nou for Barca, a feat that would have brought them level with Bayern Munich’s record of consecutive home victories.
Instead, Juve’s defence – which has leaked just two goals in 10 European games this season – stops the run one short of the record-equalling mark.
Barca’s run of consecutive Champions League victories at home – all of which came under Luis Enrique – started in September 2014, the streak being kicked off with a 1-0 triumph over APOEL.
Prior to the Juve draw, the last time they failed to win at home was in April 2014, when a 1-1 quarter-final draw against Atletico Madrid under Gerardo Martino saw them exit that year’s competition 2-1 on aggregate.
