Slavia Prague vs. Barcelona: Where to Watch UEFA Champions League, TV Channel, Live Stream, Team News and Odds

Barcelona looks to take charge of Group F when it takes on Slavia Prague in the Czech Republic on Tuesday.

The Blaugrana are tied at the top of the group with Borussia Dortmund, after drawing 0-0 in Germany on Matchday 1 before coming from behind to beat Inter Milan 2-1 at home two weeks ago.

With Dortmund traveling to Italy to face Inter Milan on Wednesday, Barcelona has the chance to open a gap at the top of the group if it wins in Prague.

The omens are good for the five-time European Cup winners, who have won their last four matches against Czech clubs, scoring 13 goals and conceding just one.

While Wednesday marks the first game between Barcelona and Slavia Prague, the Blaugrana have won three of their five previous trips to the Czech capital.

Barcelona's recent road record in the Champions League, however, is more uninspiring. The Catalans have won just four of their last 14 away games in Europe, drawing six and losing four.

If that is a mild alarm bell for Barcelona, so is Slavia's home record. The Czech giants have lost just twice in the last nine games at home in European competitions, keeping five clean sheets in the process.

Both of those defeats, however, have come in the last three games, the most recent of which against Borussia Dortmund in Matchday 2—its first defeat in 24 games in all competitions.

The Germans won 2-0 in Prague thanks to a brace from Achraf Hakimi, which left Slavia joint-bottom of the table along with Inter Milan.

Both teams have a point each, courtesy of the draw they shared on Matchday 1 in Milan, when Nicolo Barella scored an injury-time equalizer to rescue a 1-1 draw for the Italian outfit.

With trips to Dortmund and Barcelona still to come, Slavia must take points off the Catalans on Wednesday if it is to keep alive hopes of qualification.

That will be easier said than done against a Barcelona side that, after a slow start to the season, looks to be shifting through the gears.

With Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez back from injury, and summer signing Antoine Griezmann beginning to click, Barcelona has looked a lot more fluent offensively and has scored 15 goals in the last five games across all competitions.

That trio will be key to Barcelona's chances of returning from Prague with three points, which would put the Catalans well on course to reach the round of 16 for the 16th consecutive season.

Here's all you need to know ahead of Wednesday.
