Despite losing 1-0 tonight in Krakow, Barcelona won their Champions League preliminary tie against Wisla 4-1 on aggregate and made it to the group stage of the competition. It was a lackluster display by Barça, whose players did not seem to perform at full intensity, probably due to the four-goal advantage obtained in the first leg of the tie.

Leo Messi had not been included in the squad for this game; the Argentine forward returned to Spain right after winning the Olympic gold medal in Beijing, but Barça’s coach Pep Guardiola decided it was best for him to stay in Barcelona preparing for the beginning of the domestic league, to take place next weekend.
