Despite it being a disappointing Champions League campaign for the Catalans, they should be backed to get on the score sheet

Barcelona face Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening on matchday five of the Champions League in what is likely to be a tough game for Xavi Hernandez's men.

The Catalans could already be out of the competition by the time the match kicks off, with their continuity dependent on Inter Milan not beating Viktoria Plzen in the early game.

Bayern meanwhile are already through to the last-16 after four successive wins and need a point to confirm top spot in the group.

Barcelona vs Bayern Munich preview

Barca have failed to score in each of their last three meetings with the Bavarians but that run should end on Wednesday night.

While the context of the game will be conditioned by the result of Inter Milan against Viktoria Plzen, Barca will nevertheless be keen to put in a good performance to help recover confidence while also being aware that every victory in the Champions League brings prize money, of which the Catalans are clearly in need.

The hosts will try to come flying out of the blocks, irrespective of the result in Milan and backing them to net an early goal could be of interest.
