The two clubs have met 8 times before and the history favours Bayern Munich who have won 6 of the total matches they met while FC Barcelona managed to win only 2 of them. The Bundesliga club has won 18 successive matches across all competitions, destroying the English side Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate in the last 16 and set eyes on the third title this season having already claimed domestic and league cup.

Barcelona thrashed Napoli on a 3-1 victory in the previous round to qualify for the quarter finals, a move that keeps them on a better position to reach the finals this year. Over half a decade have past since the two great clubs met, Barcelona winning 3-0 in the first leg at Allianz Arena

This will be the first quarter final in the history to be played without fans due to fear of Covid-19 infections. The match will be played tonight at 2200HRS EA time.
