**Abstract:** This paper is concerned with $C_0-$representations of locally compact groups. The focus is on the relationship between the $C_0-$property and square-integrability, the latter meaning that the representation is quasi-equivalent to a subrepresentation of the regular one. We show that for certain real algebraic groups every $C_0-$representation has a square-integrable tensor power and discuss some classes of groups enjoying this property. We point out to which extent this result supports a conjecture of Figa-Talamance and Piccardello concerning the radical of the Fourier algebra in the Fourier-Stieltjes algebra. Finally, we give a simple criterion for a $C_0-$representation to be square-integrable.

**Keywords:** square-integrability, real algebraic groups, $C_0-$property, $C_0-$representation
