Slavia Prague vs. Barcelona: Can hosts cause a major upset against Spanish giants?

Published

on

Barcelona travel to the Czech capital to take on Slavia Prague on Wednesday night as they search for back-to-back Champions League victories.

The hosts went to San Siro on matchday one and picked up a valuable 1-1 draw with Inter Milan, but lost their home encounter in a 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

The Czech outfit can be backed at 6/1 to cause the upset of the group so far and manage to take all three points in the meeting with Barcelona.

Slavia Prague v Barcelona – Can Czech outfit defy the odds?

Slavia were, however, forced to qualify to this stage of the competition through a play-off match with CFR Cluj. They came out as 1-0 winners in both legs. They can be backed at 20/1 to edge past Ernesto Valverde’s side with a 1-0 victory.

Barca meanwhile head into the game with a win and a draw to their name in Group F. They were held to a goalless stalemate in their last away game at Dortmund. Another draw this time is available at 15/4, with another goalless draw available at 16/1.

Should Valverde’s men keep another clean sheet, they can be backed at 11/8. The home side are available at 8/1 to also have a successful evening at the back without conceding.

Barca’s other group game involved coming from behind to beat Inter 2-1. It’s 15/2 for an identical victory for Barcelona. And it’s 11/2 for the away side to come from behind and win the game.

Luis Suarez scored a brace in that vital win. The Uruguayan is available at 7/2 to score the first goal of the game.

Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann will also be obvious threats to the Slavia defence. The former is 11/4 to score first, with the latter available at 9/2.

Nigerian Peter Olayinka scored for the Czech club in their potentially crucial draw at Inter. He’s 14/1 to score the game’s opener, and 4/1 to score anytime.

It’s also a massive 65/1 for Slavia danger man Stanislav Tecl to score the only goal in a 1-0 win for the home side.

The away side are perhaps more in need of a victory than their opponents. Valverde still finds himself under pressure despite remaining unbeaten in Europe this season.

For the hosts meanwhile, it’s an opportunity to once again play against one of the best teams in world football, in what is arguably the most competitive group of this season’s Champions League.
