Have Barcelona ever won the Europa League/UEFA Cup?

After what was a pretty awful first half of 2021/22, FC Barcelona failed to finish in the top two places of their Champions League group.

Instead, La Blaugrana would finish 3rd and are now set to play out the rest of their 2021/22 European campaign in the Europa League.

Barca’s first outing in the competition this season will see them taken on Serie A powerhouse Napoli in the Round of 32.

The first leg between the pair kicks off at 5:45 pm UK time on Thursday at the Camp Nou, with the return leg in Italy a week later.

What is Barcelona’s record in the Europa League/UEFA Cup?

But with Barcelona having spent much of the 21st century plying their trade in the Champions League, some fans may not be too familiar with their record in Europe’s secondary club competition.

Barcelona have never played in the Europa League under its current name, but they have had a number of campaigns in the competition under its former name, the UEFA Cup.

In fact, Barcelona have played out 78 UEFA Cup matches throughout their history; winning 40, drawing 17 and losing 21 whilst scoring 149 and conceding 75.

A pretty solid record for the Spanish giants. However, they have never actually won the competition.

Barcelona have taken part in 11 UEFA Cup campaigns between 1972/73 and 2003/04.

And whilst they have failed to make it out of the groups just twice – the last time being in 1973/74 – Barcelona have never actually reached the final of the competition.

Instead, they have been to four semi-finals, but were bested by Liverpool in 1975/76, PSV in 1976/77, Bayern Munich in 1995/96 and Liverpool in 2000/01.
