Can you name Barcelona’s XI from the 2006 Champions League final?


On a balmy Parisian night in May 2006, Barcelona finally added a second European Cup to their trophy cabinet. After going 1-0 down to Arsenal, they came back to take the game 2-1.

Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann was sent off after 18 minutes, but the Gunners still took the lead before half-time through a Sol Campbell header.

Frank Rijkaard’s substitutions made all the difference in the second half, however. A young Andres Iniesta came on at half-time, Henrik Larsson was introduced after an hour and Juliano Belletti 10 minutes after the Swede.

With those three on the pitch, Barca came roaring back and scored twice in the space of five minutes late on. What we want you to do here, though, is name the XI that Rijkaard sent out to start the game.

If this gives you the taste for another testing quiz, why not try naming every manager to take charge of Barcelona since 2000?
