Slavia Prague vs Barcelona UEFA Champions League Matchday 3 Odds & Betting Preview
Group F is another that could be described as a ‘group of death’ as it contains three bonafide giants of European soccer. With three former European champions in the group, Slavia Prague have six mountains to climb, the latest being a home game against the mighty Barcelona on Wednesday, October 23, at 3:00 pm EST.
Things don’t get any easier for Slavia Prague as the latest European heavyweight hovers into view for Matchday 3 – the club’s first-ever game against Barcelona. They start the game in bottom place in the group.
So far, the Czech champions have picked up a single point from their opening two games, against Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund, but the visit of the five-time European champions is their toughest test so far. An interesting point to note though is that Barca have lost two of their previous six away games in the Czech Republic. An omen maybe?
Slavia so Close at the San Siro
Slavia had looked set to pick up their first-ever away win in the UEFA Champions League group stage when Peter Olayinka’s gave them a 63rd-minute goal in the San Siro on Matchday 1, but Inter’s Nicolò Barella leveled for the home side two minutes into added time. It was a missed opportunity for Slavia, one they were to regret even more two weeks later when Borussia Dortmund traveled to Prague and ran out comfortable 2-0 winners.
