Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen meet this Wednesday, September 7 at the Camp Nou, in the debut of both teams in Group C of the Champions League, which returns to Barcelona months later.
The culés know that they cannot fail against the Czechs, a priori the weakest rival, and they will have to add the six points at stake to fight with Bayern Munich and Inter Milan for first place.
The new project for the Barça team, led by Xavi Hernández on the bench and by Robert Lewandowski on the pitch, is generating great expectations at the start of the season.
Xavi Hernández still does not include the last two signings made (Héctor Bellerín and Marcos Alonso) in a call, this time in the European premiere.
Nor is the Bosnian Miralem Pjanic among those chosen, who with the club's permission has not trained and is finalizing his pass to Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. On the other hand, on the list, and with number 32, is the young Pablo Torre.
The match between Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen will be played this Wednesday, September 7, at 9:00 p.m. (Spanish time). It can be seen live through Movistar Plus Liga de Campeones and it can be followed minute by minute on the La Vanguardia website.
