In the 1998–99 UEFA Champions Leaguegroup stage, Bayern defeated Barca in both matches, 1–0 at home[5] and 2–1 away[6] en route to Bayern topping Group D while Barcelona finished third and failed to reach the knockout stage.[7]

Bayern and Barca had met in four knockout ties since 2008–09 UEFA Champions League, which yielded 26 goals prior to this game. Each time the eventual winner of the Bayern-Barca knockout tie went on not only to win the UEFA Champions League, but also complete the continental treble, which also occurred in 2009, 2013 and 2015.[8]

Barcelona won 5–1 on aggregate in the 2008–09 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. Barca’s 4–0 win at Camp Nou in the first leg, with all goals scored in the first half, led Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauer to remark “What I saw in the first half is, without doubt, the worst football in Bayern’s history”. Barca manager Pep Guardiola was sent off in the first leg for protesting a yellow card given to Lionel Messi, and had to watch the second leg from the stands.[9][10][11] This defeat, as well as 0–1 home loss in a Bundesliga match against Schalke 04, eventually led to the sacking of Bayern manager Jürgen Klinsmann.[12]

The semi-finals of the 2012–13 competition saw Arjen Robben and Thomas Müller inspire Bayern to a 7–0 aggregate victory, to become the biggest win of the semi-finals on aggregate,[13] including a 3–0 win at the Camp Nou[14][15] which was Barcelona’s last home defeat in European competition until a 3–0 loss on 8 December 2020 to Juventus.

The semi-finals of the 2014–15 competition saw Lionel Messi and Neymar as the key players in a 5–3 aggregate win over Bayern, a 3–0 win at the Camp Nou and then a 3–2 defeat at the Allianz Arena.[16][17] Bayern’s manager at the time was Pep Guardiola, who had previously managed Barca from 2008 to 2012.
