Barcelona Vs Slavia Prague : UCL Today At 6:55pm – European Football UEFA

Wins in their last two fixtures have given Barcelona a three-point cushion at the top of Group F, and they will be looking for a third straight success when Slavia Praha come to the Camp Nou for the first time.
• In Prague on Matchday 3, the teams’ first ever meeting, Lionel Messi gave Barcelona a third-minute lead but Jan Bořil levelled five minutes into the second half, only for a Peter Olayinka own goal seven minutes later to settle the contest.
• That means Barcelona have seven points in the standings, three ahead of both Borussia Dortmund and Internazionale; Slavia are fourth on one point.
Form guide
• Having been held 0-0 at Dortmund on Matchday 1 – the second successive European match in which Barcelona had failed to score, for the first time since October-November 2017 – the Spanish side came from behind to beat Inter 2-1 at the Camp Nou in their second fixture, Luis Suárez scoring twice in the second half including a late winner.
• Barcelona are unbeaten in 33 UEFA Champions League home matches, a run that started in September 2013 (W30 D3); the 5-1 defeat of Lyon in last season’s round of 16 second leg eclipsed the previous competition record of 29 set by Bayern München between March 1998 and April 2002.
• Barcelona have won their last five matches against Czech clubs, scoring 15 goals and conceding only two; in their most recent contests before Matchday 3 they got the better of Viktoria Plzeň in the 2011/12 group stage, winning 2-0 at home and 4-0 away with Messi scoring a hat-trick in the latter match.
