The Catalans end their poor Champions League campaign in Czech Republic where they should be able to claim their second win

Barcelona head to Viktoria Plzen on matchday six of the Champions League to contest a game with little riding on it.

Meanwhile forward Ansu Fati is priced at 11/2 (6.50) just ahead of fellow Spain international Ferran Torres at 13/2 (7.50).

Viktoria Plzen vs Barcelona preview

The Blaugrana will have little appetite for Tuesday night's fixture given the disappointing nature of their exit from the tournament last week.

Nevertheless, there is still prize money and pride at stake both of which are needed for the Catalan club and they should be able to put in a competitive performance.

There is nothing riding on the game for the hosts either but the motivation of facing Barcelona should ensure they take the game seriously.

Barca are yet to keep a clean sheet in the competition this season and while they should be too strong for their opponents, opposing Xavi's men to record a shutout should appeal.

Viktoria Plzen vs Barcelona tips and predictions

Barcelona to win and both teams to score is available at 8/5 (2.60) which looks like an appealing option while both teams to score on its own also looks attractive at 4/5 (1.80).
