Spanish La Liga giants Barcelonaare eyeing a fourth straight win in all competitions ahead of their home game against Czech side Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League.
The disappointing draw at home to Rayo Vallecano has been followed by wins over Real Sociedad, Real Valladolid and Sevilla in the league for manager Xavi Hernandez and his Barcelona players. As things stand on the La Liga table, they are two points off Real Madrid at the top. Defending champions Real Madrid have won all their four league games this season.
Barcelona are in one of the toughest groups in the Champions League group stage this season after they were drawn in Group C alongside immediate past Italian champions Inter Milan and German champions Bayern Munich.
The home game against Viktoria Plzen gives Barcelona the perfect platform to begin their Champions League group stage campaign with a good result especially taking into account their woeful campaign last season. They were dumped out of the Champions League at the group stage last season after they were drawn in the same group as the aforementioned Bayern Munich,Portuguese side Benfica and Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv.
Barcelona are the overwhelming favourites to get the three points at stake ahead of the game against Viktoria Plzen of the Czech Republic at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night. An home win will make it four straight victories for the Catalan giants in all competitions.
