But bringing in Dutch manager Frank Rijakkard into the club broke their curse and earned them the La Liga trophy twice and even helped the club defeat Arsenal in 2006 enabling Barca to lift their second European crown. Rijkaard did this by forming a whole new team and building the team around their one of the best players Ronaldinho.

The Year of 2014-15 was the winning season for the Blaugrana as they won La Liga by two points and even took home the Copa Del Rey defeating Atletic Bilbao in the final. Their winning streak didn’t end there as they managed to drown Juventus by winning 3-1 in the Champions League final the same season. the highlight of that season was the formation of the epic trio of Messi, Neymar and Suarez as the trio scored a total of 122 goals across all competitions.
When Barcelona Earned Their First Ever European Cup Triumph
Johan Cruyff’s dream team that year earned the club massive success by first winning the European Cup winners cup in 1989 defeating Sampdoria in the final and three years later drowning Sampdoria again but this time in the European cup final. Barcelona has been and always will be thankful to legend Cruyff for letting the club overcome the European barrier.
The Pep Era

One of the greatest footballers ever, Lionel Messi has changed the game for Barcelona ever since he signed for the club on a piece of tissue. It’s difficult to imagine Barcelona without their star footballer anymore. After Messi, Barca seems ever ready to conquer the football world.
The Greatest Comeback Ever At Camp Nou Against PSG
This definitely has to be the best moment for Barcelona till now as they created the biggest comeback ever at Camp Nou when they defeated PSG 6-1 in the second leg clash of the UEFA champions league.
