Game Preview


FC Porto takes on Xavi’s Barcelona in a crucial match on Tuesday at the Montjuic when the UEFA Champions League returns this week with a new round of games.


With 3 wins along with 1 loss in their 4 games, Porto have been playing well in Group H. With 9 points, they are now ranked 2nd in the table. If Shakhtar loses or draws with Antwerp, the Portuguese giants will go to the competition’s knockout phase; conversely, if Shakhtar loses to the team now bottom of the group, a tie could prove sufficient for the Portuguese heavyweights. In this division, Porto has already defeated Antwerp twice and defeated Shakhtar 3-1; however, in the rematch, which took place in early October, they were defeated 1-0 by Barcelona. The team led by Sergio Conceicao will go into this game fresh off 3 consecutive victories across all competitions, including a 4-0 victory against Montalegre in the Taca de Portugal last Friday and a 2-1 victory against Vitoria Guimaraes within the league on November 11.



If Barcelona had defeated Shakhtar on November 7th, they could have advanced to the Champions League knockout round with a pair of matches remaining; instead, the Ukrainian team won 1-0, placing a heavy burden upon the La Liga champions. Although Xavi’s team leads Group H, they are not overly secure since Porto and Shakhtar are only two points apart in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively, on the same number of points, 9. If Barcelona wins on Tuesday, they will guarantee their place in the competition’s round of 16. If Shakhtar draws or loses to Royal Antwerp during the other game in the group, a tie would be sufficient. If the Catalan team loses and Shakhtar wins, both teams will have 9 points going into the last matchday. Xavi’s squad will be anxious to prevent themselves from waiting until December 13 to find out their fate, as they are going to finish away to Antwerp.
