Barcelona will be looking to carry forward their new-found momentum into the Champions League when they host Viktoria Plzen in a Group C match at Camp Nou, on Wednesday. Following a difficult start to their 2022-23 La Liga campain, the Catalan outfit have scored 11 times in three wins on the trot.

Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Eric Garcia were among the goals in the 3-0 win at Sevilla over the weekend, as Xavi will know how crucial the tie against the Viktoria Plzen can prove in a group also consisting of Inter and Bayern Munich.

Plzen enter the tie on the back of four consecutive wins but will have to pull off something special to overcome the Barca challenge, with Michal Bilek aware of the Spanish side's 6-0 aggregate win the last time they met in the competition in the 2011-12 season.
