The BAR vs PSV match preview –
Champions of their respective leagues in Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven will be a facing each other for the second time in a group game of the UEFA Champions League.
Barcelona were thought to have no competition at all this year given how weak their nearest rival in Real Madrid became in summer. They are currently in the second place in the domestic league and still finding it difficult to get into a swing of good momentum. Their campaign in the Champions League is still solid and that has to be the main focus for the club.
On the other hand, PSV Eindhoven don’t have anything left to offer in this competition. They are currently last in the group standings and are playing for pride. The Dutch Champions were given an unfavourable draw, and this was the ideal litmus test the team needed to understand where the improvements have to be made in order to compete.
