Xavi’s first match at the helm of Barcelona can be considered a success. On Matchday 14, the Catalan side hosted Espanyol. Yes, Barça won only 1-0, but they outplayed their opponents on all fronts. So, Barça made it through to the Eurocup zone, sitting in sixth place with 20 points.
The situation in the Champions League group stage is not the most colourful for Barcelona. Bayern have already secured an early play-off berth, while Dynamo Kyiv are just one point adrift of the table. So, the main rival of the Catalans is Benfica. Remember, last time they rolled them into the pitch, scoring as many as three goals. Can Barcelona avenge that humiliating defeat?
Benfica got off to a fairly confident start in the Champions League group stage, but things fell apart when they faced Bayern twice. The Portuguese club lost both matches to the German side by 2-9. Benfica have two matches remaining, one against Barcelona and Dinamo. In the first round, the Eagles easily thrashed the Catalans (3-0), but the Ukrainian club fought back (0-0).
