Barcelona and Antwerp go head to head at Estadio Olimpico (different stadium) in the Champions League group stages round 1.

Barca aim to kick off their campaign in fashion and their performance in a 5-0 crushing of Real Betis is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Tuesday’s clash.

Summer signing Joao Felix has already started paying off, while Brazil winger Raphinha should be recalled to the starting XI. Both Pedri and Ronald Araujo are out of contention with injuries.

The Belgian champions, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Westerlo, but they will have a mountain to climb against the Catalan powerhouse.

David faces Goliath in Barcelona; therefore, anything but a routine home win would be a big surprise.

As for the visiting side, all Corbanie, Engels, Verhulst, and Vines should miss out through injuries.

This match will be played on 19/09/2023 at 20:00

Prediction: 3-1

Recommended Pick: Over 2.5 Goals.
