Viktoria Plzen and Barcelona face off on Tuesday in a Group C Champions League showdown at Doosan Arena. 

When these two teams faced off on September 7th it was Barcelona that secured the 5-1 victory. Robert Lewandowski had a big game, finishing with three goals. They had 77 percent of the possession and 11 shots on target. 

Barcelona comes into this game sitting in 3rd place in the group having picked up four points. Barcelona faced off against Bayern Munich last Wednesday, and they were defeated 3-0. Barcelona had 52 percent of the possession, but they couldn’t find the back of the net. On Saturday, Barcelona faced off against Valencia, and they were defeated 1-0 in that defeat. Ronald Araujo and Sergi Roberto are both dealing with injuries, and they won’t be able to go in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Viktoria Plzen, who sits in 4th place in the group, having picked up zero points. In their last Champions League game against Inter Milan, the defense really struggled, giving up four goals and that led to the defeat. They had 36 percent of the possession and one shot on target. On Saturday they faced off against Zlin and Viktoria Plzen was able to secure a 3-0 victory. Jhon Mosquera picked up a card in the last game and will be suspended. 

This has been a terrible Champions League season for Barcelona, but they will find some success in this game. The one team that Barcelona had success was against Viktoria Plzen, and they are going to run up the score in this game. Look for Barcelona to score at least three goals again and cruise to the victory here. Back Barcelona -2.5 to cash.
