Barcelona are one of the worlds football heavyweights, one of the most successful clubs in Europe and beyond.

Following their golden years under Pep Guardiola with a team that included the likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta, the Catalan side have been yearning to win another Champions League title.

The last time Barcelona & Messi won the Champions League was in2015.

The Catalan giants lifted their fifth Champions League title afterbeating Juventus 3-1 in the final in Berlin, with Ivan Rakitic, Neymar and Luis Suarez all netting.

Alvaro Morata netted in the second half to make it 1-1 temporarily for the Italian side, but Suarez and Neymar hit back to see out the final.

Messi and Neymar were both joint top-scorers in the Champions League with 10 goals apiece, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

Barcelona finished first in Group F ahead of PSG, Ajax and APOEL, before knocking out the likes of Manchester City, PSG (again) and Bayern in the knockout stages.

The victory over Juventus in the 2015 final was Messis fourth time winning the competition.

Messi has outlined his desires to bring the Champions League trophy back to Camp Nou ahead of his first season as team captain for the 2018-19 season.

Regarding this year, I think we have set a platform to get excited, the signings that came will help us a lot to be better than we were, the talismanic Argentina starstated.

Although last year we won La Liga and the Copa del Rey, we all got stung in the Champions League.

We promise that we will do everything possible so that this beautiful cup returns to the Camp Nou again.

Things did not turn out as planned, as Barcelona were knocked out of the Champions League in humiliating fashion later that season when they infamously lost to Liverpool 4-3 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

The shock loss came a year after a similarly embarrassing catastrophic ordeal at Roma, where Barcelona lost 4-4 on away goals after winning the first leg 4-1.

In fact, Barcelona have only continued their Champions League misfortunes, getting annihilated 8-2 by Bayern in the 2019-20 quarterfinals.

Barcelona have won the Champions League a total offivetimes: in 1991-92, 2005-06, 2008-09, 2010-11 and 2014-15.
