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

Barcelona can take a significant step towards the round of 16 of the Champions League when it hosts Slavia Prague on Tuesday.

Three points clear of both Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund at the top of Group F, the Catalans can extend at least temporarily extend their lead with a third straight win in the competition.

Barcelona won 2-1 in Prague two weeks ago, courtesy of a strike from Lionel Messi and an own goal from Peter Olayinka, but its seven-game winning run in all competitions came to an end on Saturday with the 3-1 defeat at Levante.

Leading 1-0 through a first-half penalty from Lionel Messi, Barcelona conceded three times in six second-half minutes to lose its third game of the campaign.

The Catalans now share top spot in La Liga with Real Madrid and Real Sociedad, but have a superior goal difference to both teams.

Being top of the table, however, was not enough to prevent Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde coming under severe criticism after his team's second-half display.

Barcelona sports daily El Mundo Deportivo and Sport were both scathing in their assessment of the Catalans' performance against Levante, but Valverde insisted the reaction to the defeat was over the top.

"Of course I'm not thinking about resigning, it's just a defeat," he said in his press conference after the game.

"The players have responded and we have to continue [working]. We have lost a match and that's it; we always react and this time won't be any different."

Despite Valverde's defiance, however, it is hard to dispel the feeling Barcelona hasn't been firing on all cylinders this season.

The reigning La Liga champions have picked up just seven points on the road in five games so far this season, their worst return since they picked up six over five games at the beginning of the 2007-08 campaign.

The return of the Champions League should provide a timely tonic for Barcelona, who hasn't lost at home in the competition in 33 games, dating all the way back to September 2013.

Barcelona has won 30 of those 33 games and that run is unlikely to be interrupted by Slavia Prague, who is yet to win a road game at this stage of the competition after four attempts.

The Czechs have never won a game in Spain, although they have only been beaten twice in the last six visits and last year they drew 2-2 in Seville.
