Barcelona vs Viktoria Plzen preview
Given how devastating their elimination from the competition last week was, the Blaugrana won’t be too excited about the match on Tuesday night.
However, there is still dignity and prize money at risk, both of which the Catalan club needs and for which they should be able to play well.
Even if the hosts have nothing to lose, the motivation of playing Barcelona should make them take the game seriously.
While Barca should be too strong for their opponents, the chance for Xavi’s side to record a shutout should be appealing. However, Barca have yet to maintain a clean sheet in the competition this season.
