BARCELONA RECORD AGAINST ITALIAN TEAMS IN CAMP NOU
Although Italian teams in Europe are always labelled competitive and complicated, Barça should almost demand that they cross paths. The first precedent at the Camp Nou dates back to 1959. Since then, there were only two defeats for the hosts.
HERE ARE THE TEAMS THAT HAVE VISITED THE GREAT CAMP NOU IN THE PAST TILL DATE
Roma (two wins, one draw),
Fiorentina (one win, one draw),
Udinese (lost their only visit)
Lazio (lost on their only visit).
MILAN (five defeats and two draws)
Milan, an old friend
The 'rossonero' team is the Italian rival that has visited the Camp Nou most times in Europe. And the other who can say that they have actually won a clash in the Camp Nou. They achieved it in the 00/01 group phase, thanks to a 0-2 with goals from Coco and Oliver Bierhoff.

A memorable one is Juventus' win in the quarterfinals of the 02/03 Champions League. Although Saviola had scratched a profitable tie in the first leg (1-1), the situation became more complex in the second leg thanks to a goal by Nedved at the beginning of the second half.
Xavi was able to tie shortly after and sent the clash to extra time, in which Zalayeta, in one of his few good contributions to the Turin club, culminated a quick play six minutes before the penalties that left the Blaugranas out of the tournament.
Juve has been the last to sing victory in the Camp Nou. It was 2017 and Luis Enrique's Barcelona had already lost 3-0 in Turin, which meant that the 0-0 in the Camp Nou was celebrated as a triumph, as it was enough to get into the UCL semifinals three seasons ago.
However, the Old Lady track record against Barcelona still shows the Catalans usually have the upper hand: 3-0 two years ago in the group stage, 3-1 in the semifinals of the former UEFA tournament in 91 and 1-0 in the European Cup Winners' Cup 86.
The myth that “Inter doesn't know how to score in the Camp Nou” ended yesterday
Inter Milan this time netted their first goal. And it's a weird paradox for the Milanese team, as one of their best European memories happened in the Camp Nou, but they have also recorded four defeats.
Last year, in the group stage, Rafinha and Jordi Alba scored in the 2-0 win. In the 09/10 campaign, in the group stage, Pique and Pedro completed the same scoreboard. It was a 3-0 in the second phase of the 03/04 groups (Saviola, Cocu and Kliuvert scored).
But the 1-0 of April 2010, with the unforgettable memory of Mourinho celebrating on his knees with the sprinklers on, was celebrated to the fullest. It was the start of the good performances that would eventually allow Mourinho to win the tournament against Bayern in Madrid. Piqué signed a bitter defeat that counted with a disallowed goal to Bojan in the final moments of the clash.
