Eurocup Statistics - no more chance after home beating 0-2
In the first two semifinal matches of Champions League the home team lost 0-2. Does it have any chance to win?
If we look through the whole European Cups' History, and this is more than 17000 matches, we can find both.
So, in a season 71/72 (UEFA Cup, round of 64) Lierse SK won return game against Leeds United with a score 4-0. The same story was in this season in Europe League - Anorthosis won against Sibenik 3-0 after 0-2 home defeat and Sporting CP won against Brondby (0-2, 3-0).
Through the whole history we can find just 7 times, when the team, which lost the first game 0-2, was able to come through.
However, if we analyse the final lap of the Champions League, we could find just 5 times the team lost the first game with 0-2. You can see all results below.
|Season||Stage||Team 1||Team 2||First leg||Second leg|
|95/96||1/4||Borussia Dortmund||Ajax Amsterdam||0-2||0-1|
|01/02||1/4||Deportivo La Coruna||Manchester United||0-2||2-3|
|01/02||1/2||FC Barcelona||Real Madrid||0-2||1-1|
|07/08||1/4||AS Roma||Manchester United||0-2||0-1|
|10/11||1/8||FC Copenhagen||Chelsea FC||0-2||0-0|
So, I think, there is a little chance. I think, the final game will be in London between Manchester United and Barcelona.
