Barcelona are in the quarterfinals of the Champions League although this time they will not have a two-legged tie, as is usually the case in the competition.

They will play a one-off game against Bayern Munich in Lisbon for a place in the final four. 

Quique Setien has carried on the tradition set by Frank Rijkaard, Pep Guardiola, Tito Vilanova, Tata Martino, Luis Enrique and Ernesto Valverde by leading Barça into the last eight.

The Catalans have now progressed that far in each of the last 13 seasons. 

In fact, on just three occasions have Barça failed to progress from the last 16 out of 18 attempts.

The first was painful, against CSKA in 1992-93. Twelve years later, they failed to beat Chelsea and in 2006-07 they were knocked out by Liverpool.
