Match Preview & Team News
Slavia Prague will continue their Champions League adventure with another clash against the former champions on Wednesday night as five-time winners Barcelona come to visit the Czech capital. The timing for the clash against Blaugrana could have been better for the hosts as the Catalan giants look to have found the right rhythm after a shaky start to the season.
Barcelona’s 0-3 hammering of Eibar market the team’s fifth successive win in all competitions. Ernesto Valverde’s men bagged seven goals and conceded none in the last two domestic victories over Sevilla and Eibar. They climbed up to the top of La Liga standings thanks to Real Madrid’s slip-up at newly-promoted Mallorca.
The visitors also managed their first Champions League win of the campaign thanks to a second-half comeback against Inter Milan three weeks ago at Camp Nou. Luis Suarez stole the show on the evening by completing a brace. The team’s rise in form came parallel to Lionel Messi’s return on the pitch. The Argentine star was on target in each of the last two appearances for Barcelona and he looks ready for the maiden Champions League goal of the campaign here in Prague.
Slavia are six points clear at the top of the standings after 13 rounds in their domestic league, but they were never expected to do much in this group with Barcelona, Dortmund and Inter Milan. They did hold Nerazzurri to a 1-1 draw at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza but fell 0-2 at home to BVB in the second round.
