Barcelona’s title hopes suffered a setback last weekend as they suffered a shock 3-1 defeat at Levante. This was no rotated Catalan side as Lionel Messi and co. were beaten comprehensively. The hosts will now be hoping to return to winning ways when the welcome Slavia Prague to the Nou Camp for this Champions League Matchday 4 fixture.
Barca are unsurprisingly the heavy favourites to take all 3 points here, as Slavia comes into this game bottom of the group with a single point to their name so far after a surprise 1-1 draw against Inter Milan on Matchday 1. However, the worry for the hosts is the impact of juggling multiple competitions, as they are just a point clear at the top of the table domestically. They face a tough run-in with Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund to come in this group, so a victory for the Catalans is vital here.
Slavia nearly produced a major upset in their 2-1 home defeat to the Spanish champions, but they aren’t likely to get that close in this trip. The visitors’ recent Champions League trips have brought defeats to BATE, APOEL and Dynamo Kyiv, who have each scored twice in those wins. That suggests that this will be a comfortable victory for Barcelona when these 2 teams meet on Wednesday morning.
