Although the Catalans have been knocked out of the tournament, they will fight for their pride against Viktoria Plzen. Xavi could be seen trying out new players in the encounter with domestic silverware still up for grabs. The Spanish team who has dropped down to the Europa League will be looking to finish the game on a high and end their European glory with style. The likes of Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres who have been regularly benched under Xavi could be given a run in their away fixture.

After being placed in the group of death, it was always difficult for Viktoria Plzen to produce results. Although in their last home match in Europe, the side would be looking to give their fans a shimmer of joy before bowing out. Michael Bilek’s side is returning from a positive result domestically as they sit on top of the table and would be looking to give Barcelona a shock at home.
