One of the shock exits from the 2021-22 season's UEFA Champions League was that of FC Barcelona, who were demoted to the Europa League following a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich.

The Blaugrana will play in the second tier of the European competition for the remainder of the season.

When was the last time FC Barcelona played in the Europa League?

This happened in the 2003/04 season when the Europa League was called the UEFA Cup. It was a round-of-16 clash against Celtic.

Barcelona lost the first leg 1-0 in Scotland and were only able to achieve a 0-0 draw in the second leg at the Camp Nou.
