#5 Barcelona match Real Madrid in the history books

The historical rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona is well documented and they regularly compete for the biggest honours and trophies.

Coming into the clash with Inter Milan, Barcelona had already guaranteed their status as group winners for an unbelievable 13th consecutive season. By avoiding defeat against the Nerazzurri, they became only the second side after Real Madrid to go 20 matches without defeat in a Champions League group stage fixture.

The last time the Catalans lost a Champions League group stage fixture was way back in November 2016 when they fell to former manager Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in a 3-1 defeat.

Since then, they have won 14 and drawn six of their Champions League group stage fixtures and they are only the second side after Real Madrid to achieve this unique feat.

The record-champions went without defeat in the Champions League between 2012 and 2017 when a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham ended their record-breaking run at 30 matches.
