Barcelona will eye to extend their five-match winning streak as they travel to Prague to face underdogs Slavia Praha in their upcoming UEFA Champions League 2019-20 on October 24. The UEFA Champions League Slavia Praha vs Barcelona fixture will be played at the Eden Arena. Both sides will be meeting for the first time on Wednesday night at 12: 30 am. The La Liga Champions held a draw against Bayern Dortmund in the opening match followed by 2-1 win over Inter Milan in their last Champions League outing. Whereas, Slavia Praha lost their last match to Bayern Dortmund.
Relishing their attacking form after the Eibar clash, Barca forward Antoine Griezmann said, "There will be better or worse days, but we are getting to know each other little by little and we will go to more."
Speaking about team compatibility, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said, "Great players always understand each other and always meet. In the end, with time and with matches they will still find more and better."
Meanwhile, the Slavia captain Tomas Soucek has hailed Barca's 'three unbelievable forwards - Suarez, Messi, and Griezmann.' "We know how strong they are, particularly Messi, his left foot is exceptional and I think you can't really get ready for that," he said.
Barca will step into the turf without Sergi Roberto, who picked up a knee injury during the La Liga clash against Eibar. Gerard Pique is expected to make it to the starting XI as he returns after serving a ban.
