Barcelona will host PSV at the Camp Nou Stadium. This is the first round of the group B campaign and for sure a true ticket booster to win some cash on Tuesday night. Barcelona is one of the biggest contenders for the title this year. Despite winning the domestic league and cup trophies, the Catalan team is hungry to go an extra mile this year and win the Champions League once again. Their biggest star, Leo Messi, stated that winning the CL is their number one priority. Their squad is looking stronger than the year before and their new signings are finally getting in the form. Dembele has been amazing in the recent weeks and is finally doing what a 100 million $ player should do. Barcelona also managed to “clear up” their bench and sell or loan the underperforming players, thus giving some new kids a chance to shine and prove themselves. The Blaugrana won all their 5 home games in the competition last season and average 3 goals scored per game. The last time that Barca suffered a CL defeat at home was way back in 2013. PSV have not had the most success in their previous appearances at the elite European competition. The fact that they are in a group with Inter and Tottenham is something that will be a real problem for them if there are any real aspirations for further progression in the competition. They are also winless in the previous fourteen clashes in Spain and have lost 63% of their away matches in the Champions League. Having to face one of the best teams in Europe in their opening game is not something to look forward, but they will surely give it their best and try to surprise the favorites.
The two teams have played a total of two games against each other. Both outings occurred in 1997, and both ended as a draw with the same score of 2-2.
Possible starting lineups
Barcelona: Stegen; Alba, Umtiti, Pique, Roberto; Coutinho, Busquets, Rakitic; Dembele, Suarez, Messi

PSV: Zoet; Dumfries, Schwaab, Viergever, Angelino; Rosario, Hendrix; Bergwijn, Pereiro, Lozano; Jong
