    In the Champions League I take it?

    Betis beat them 3-4 at the Nou Camp just 2 weeks ago. If they can put 4 against them, I'd like our odds

    Yes CL only - unless you think they've only played 27 home games in the last 5 years in all completions

    To be fair, I only read the haven't lost at home part. It's a good record in this competition.

    I guess what we've got going for us is that theyve qualified and likely to rest players for our fixture whilst we will be fighting for our lives.

    Won't be easy. Nothing ever is in this competition but we've shut people up before.

    I don't think I've ever looked forward to a football match as much as this one.

    I hope we throw caution to the wind and run them off their feet!

    We have shown that on our day we can be a match for the best in Europe and if we were to beat Barca and get through this group from the position we were in there is no reason why we couldn't go all the way! A decent run to the final and then anything can happen!

    If we were to win this we would probably have a better chance of winning the CL than the league.

    If we could only win one out of the goons and this who would you guys pick?

    We have a much higher probability of making the EL final than the CL final - not sure that is even an argument.

    Even if we somehow beat Barca we would draw a 1st place finisher in R16 - so one of Atletico Madrid, PSG, Porto, Bayern M, Real or Juve. Assuming we draw the weakest on paper (Porto) (17% chance) - from there on it's only quality opponents.

    Much shitter teams than us have won the Europa in the last decade alone whereas the last time a second tier club won the CL was 2004 and 1991 for a proper surprise so let's be real. Would be a massive prestige for this team and Poche to give it a serious go and claim a major European trophy. Sorry, I just think we have no chance of the CL - it's just a revenue generator and has been since the new format.

    Game difficult but not impossible. The Barcelona is a great team but is in trouble in the Liga and already qualified in CL so something will have to leave on the way.

    What about Liverpool and Chelsea winning it? We are better than the Chelsea side that won it. And, off the top of my head it's not easy to remember much about Liverpool's team that won it in 2005, but they finished 5th in the league and lost 14 league games (only six points above us that season, incidentally). I don't see why those teams should be considered first tier and not us this season. I'd say it's more accurate to say that both those two seasons a second tier club won it, as well as Liverpool getting to the final last year. It's a knockout competition and anything is possible. However, if we can't beat Barca's reserves then we don't deserve to win it.

    Like Poch said, the first step is to believe you can win and I think the players do. It will be tough but we can do it.

    Breaking runs motivates us. Pretty sure Real had an outstanding record till we got a draw a title their place?
