With Real Madrid, Barcelona will have participated in the Champions League on 28 occasions. They have taken part in every season since 2004–2005, making it their 20th straight appearance in the tournament. The greatest absence in the history of the competition was set by Royal Antwerp, who last participated in the European Cup in 1957.

Royal Antwerp had suffered a combined 10-0 loss in each of their three away defeats to Spanish opposition. Barcelona has seven victories and one tie in its career against Belgian competition at home. Coach Mark van Bommel of Royal Antwerp has managed nine Champions League games, losing five and drawing four.

In their previous five home Champions League games against teams from outside of Europe’s top five divisions, Barcelona has prevailed in four of those contests. Both sides scored in three of the aforementioned five games. Only Cristiano Ronaldo (112) and Lionel Messi (92) have scored more Champions League goals since the 2011–12 season’s beginning than Robert Lewandowski (91).

The sole prior encounter between Barcelona and Royal Antwerp took place in the second round of the 1964–1965 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, with the Spanish powerhouses winning 3-2 on aggregate (1-2 away and 2-0 home).
