Barcelona vs Slavia Prague: how and where to watch: times, TV, online
How to watch the Champions League Group F game between Barcelona and Slavia Prague at Camp Nou on 5 November with kick-off at 18:55 hours local time.
Slavia Prague coach Jindrich Trpisovský says he is expecting “a baptism of fire” on Tuesday night as his side are entertained by Barcelona in Matchday 4 of the Champions League – it will be the first time the Czech side have ever played at Camp Nou and only their sixth visit to Spain in European competition. At least Slavia will have their experience from Matchday 3 to draw on – the narrow 1-2 scoreline reflected a tight game in which Barça were given a good run for their money with Slavia unlucky not to snatch a draw.
As it stands, nothing is clear cut in Group F. A Barça win would practically guarantee their place in the next round - as long as there is a winner in the group’s other game between Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan. Valverde’s team, who top the section on seven points, would prefer to end this round where they are now – which means beating Slavia and Dortmund in the next game - also at Camp Nou. Slavia bring up the rear in the group on one point but haven’t given up hope of securing third place to enter the Europa League. Dortmund and Inter are only three points ahead of them with three matchdays to play.
One player who won’t be involved in Tuesday’s match is Barcelona forward Luis Suárez. He suffered a sprain to his right calf muscle during the Levante game - Barça's medical department haven't specified what kind of injury the Uruguyan has but Valverde is confident he will be back soon. Ousmane Dembélé, Ansu Fati or Carles Pérez are jostling to join Messi and Griezmann in the Blaugrana attack. Sergi Roberto missed Sunday’s session because of a groin injury and Jordi Alba and Samuel Umtiti were doubtful but all three are in Valverde's 18-man squad list - Umtiti receiving the medical all-clear on the eve of the game. Slavia centre-back David Hovorka is out for the rest of the season after rupturing the ACL in his left knee in the league meeting with Viktoria Plzen at the end of last month. But Ibrahim Traoré is back with the team after having missed the October meeting with Barça due to injury. Both teams go into the game with no players suspended.
